Underwater Photography

We will be going to Hawaii next week and I wanted to try out some underwater photography while snorkeling in Maui. I purchased an Ewa Marine  plastic camera housing for our Canon 5D. This will also accommodate a flash unit. It claims that it can be used up to 60 feet deep. I have not done any underwater photography before so this will be an experiment. I do have the camera insured in case of damage, so the risk is not as great for the 5D as it would be if it was not insured. The Ewa Marine unit seems pretty well made based on my initial inspection, and is big enough to handle the 5D and a small zoom lens. I will post images here from the trip, hopefully I can capture a few sea turtles and colorful fish.
