    i have a question,, kind of veering off topic. i have almost 0 knowlage of cameras, will 1/2000 second speed be good for shooting from the beach?

    That's kindof like saying "will an 8 foot gun work for surfing in the ocean?" the answer is "sure", but the only way it would work well is if the conditions are meant for it.

    not to be snide but I would recommend learning about the "Exposure Triangle". Check this out it is a good read if you are actually interested in learning about it. http://www.digital-photography-schoo...al-photography

    I picked up a Pentax Optio W80 before I went to CR last year...it's a waterproof point and shoot camera, but it has worked well for me, but then again I'm not really trying to come up with professional shots either.

    what kind of camera you shoot with? i currently have the 30d and 70-200 f/4 that i got in college but now that i graduated ive been looking at upgrading to a 7d, dont really feel like full frame is worth the cost, and wouldn't mind get a housing with a tokina 10-17 for water shots

    yeah I have the 60d and I love it. I feel like for what I do full-frame is overkill also. I'd rather spend the extra $ on lenses. And yeah I was thinking the exact same thing, housing + tokina fisheye.

    One thing that I've always wondered, are the images taken with fisheyes from the water straightened out to lose the distortion? I don't know if it's because there aren't any straight lines in the ocean or what, but to me the photos taken from fisheyes in the water don't look as 'wacky' as the ones on land.

    If your shutter speed is one shot every .002 give or take, that is incredible and is more than capable of taking any surfing picture you want, unless that isnt what you were talking about when you said 1/2000 second speed

    How much are housings? and dont they come with warranties if they leak? I would love to get into shooting from the water but i would only do it on so-so days not the funner days. 1/2000 is a super fast shutter speed you could probably only use that on a really sunny day.
