Ikelite Underwater Housing

Just got a new Ikelite underwater housing for the Canon 5D. The little guy totally kicks but. It takes all of about 2 minutes to set up the camera and make it ready to dive and about 45 seconds to change a lens. It's rated for 200+ feet and it is so small you hardly notice it's there. Not to mention, every single function of the camera is available while it's in the housing.

The timing on this purchase was no accident. Less than 2 weeks after I got it, I've used it for 2 days on the Charlies Angles Pilot and a day for Burn Notice promos, it's almost paid for itself already.

I've been shooting second unit for Charlies Angles and it's going great. It looks like they will come back in June and do the first season of the show, go South Florida. Burn Notice (and The Glades) starts today and I have my first day of Burn Notice second unit on Friday.... 5 seasons and still going.

Next week Brett, Greg and I are off to Atlanta for Wrestlemania 27. We did 24 in Tampa a few years ago and it was the definition of a 'Big Show'. People fly in from all over the world (Russia, Japan, etc.) and pay as much as ten grand for a floor seat! Look for some pictures from Atlanta next week.
