hey mike thanks for that. I've come accross HCW before but yeah, their website is so crappy I lost interest hah. Recently SPL came out with a "splash" line of housings which look pretty cool.
Question for you, when you use the tokina 10-17, do you remove the fisheye distortion and 'straighten' the image in photoshop or do you keep the photos as is?

I leave it as is. From what I have seen most fisheye water shots normally don't look super distorted because your shooting something already round (if your shooting emptys). now if you have someone upclose in the barrel that might is a little different but normally not a big issue, at least for me.

Sorry if I'm too late in replying to your post... Shooting from the water is a blast and will keep you super fit. I've been water shooting for 15 years and have shot with most of the major makers housings- Auquatech, SPL, Barbish, and Liquid Eye... My recommendation is to go with Liquid Eye... His housings are light, strong, simple to use and by far the most affordable.
Best way to start imo is with a fixed wide angle lens on something like a Canon 7D... get yourself some fins and get out there and shoot your mates. http://www.liquideye-whs.com/
Hope this helps,
