Have you actually had any issues with the 600EX-RT not having enough power to bounce off a high ceiling? In my tests, I've been able to throw light VERY far with it. I've bounced off 20 to 30 foot ceilings with no problems, though I was shooting ISO 1000 or 1250 at the time on my 5D Mark iii. If you need a little more directional light, using something ...

Another option may be to invest in more 600EX-RT flashes and mount them together to multiply the power (it would also be possible to fire them on lower power settings to increase recycle speed). This way you would be able to control them all using the ST-E3-RT in the hotshoe. Using more 600EX-RT flashes would also allow more flexibility in lighting setup if ...

The ST-E3-RT cannot trigger the D1 directly--the only light that "speaks" the Canon RT radio protocol is the 600EX-RT. And the D1 Air transmitters cannot trigger the built-in RF receiver in the 600EX-RT directly, although you might be able to add an Air Sync to the 600EX-RT and use their system to get TTL from the D1, if that were a priority for you. ...

To me, this looks like the manually selected focus area. I don't know your camera specifically, but my camera displays a box that can be used for choosing the focus point when in spot focus mode and focuses on whatever is in that box. If you are able to move the box using the arrows then that is likely what this is. Try pushing the AF button and make sure ...

This will happen if your lens is set to manual focus (check the AF/MF switch on your lens) or in the case when the lens you're using doesn't support autofocus. A third possibility is that your lens, or the lens mount, has been damaged and is no longer communicating correctly with the camera. Of these, the first is probably by far the most common.

This will depend heavily on your focus of the dive. Photography Focused If you're diving with the focus of photography, you'll want to start down a path that allows you can scale your equipment. This leads to a DSLR that can operate with underwater lighting, RAW output, customized settings, etc. This housing will be large and you will have to fumble with ...

Having been in your situation, I can safely say there are no perfect answers. I had an xTi (400D) and was looking to do underwater photography. I ended up deciding it was not worth it to get an underwater enclosure that cost more than the camera itself, so decided to wait until I could get a nicer camera to be worth it. In the interim, I went looking ...
