I got to play with an Aquatica underwtare housing for our Canon 300D Digital Rebel DSLR camera last Monday. Go here to check out the pics:
I think we’re going to go for this system, I liked the way it worked. I was actually much more comfortable with it than I thought I would be the first time out. I’m always worried that if I’m one stop off then the photo will be completely black, but there’s more forgiveness than I thought. I forget that people used manual cameras for years. I’m not sure how, though. Taking a picture and getting an instant histogram and flashing alert showing where the photo was overexposed just seems like cheating. But I end up looking pretty good.
I’m down to the point where I’m trying to figure out which strobe I like and how many joints I need on the strobe arm. I should get the quote soon. Hopefully it won’t be too ridiculously high — it will probably cost a few times more than the camera!
I’m still working on my scoring demo, and I hope to have it done this week. I still need to finish arranging the choral part for Anna to sing. Writing counterpoint is tough at the end of a long day.
