Brilliant quality pics - I can even see my first play boat there - the red riot flair !
What case did you use for the SLR ?

Was using the Aquapac SLR casing- a lot like this one :

It juuust fits my Canon 550D + 70-200L lens... I thought that the plastic lens might make my shots a little bit fuzzy but acutally it wasn't a problem at all - there's just a slight sheen to the shadows that can be fixed by shifting the black level a smidge.... I'll try and use some rain-off on the plastic lens and some anti-fog sachets on the inside of the casing- I got away without both the last time but if the air had been warmer than the water I was in trouble :)
