I'm set on doing some filming this year, and making some videos. I haven't done any wake filming before and I need some help. Fortunately, I have some decent equipment I aquired a few years ago which has already got me a good start. <BR>I have a Canon Gl-2 which I have had for the past few years but haven't really used much. I know that it's not a top of the line camera but it should get me some decent quality stuff, I think? I also bought the Raynox fisheye for it awhile ago. <BR>Now here is where I need the help. The stuff that I need would be an underwater housing and decent enough editing software. I believe the Epic housing kit can be had for less than 400 dollars after some of the research I did. Which will probably be my choice since I'm trying to do this on a budget, Unless someone else has better suggestions. And as for the editing program I remember back a few years ago Adobe was the program to use. But I also remember it's a very expensive program that's pretty complex as well. What is the best bang for my buck I can get with editing software? Any equipment I forgot or tips would be appreciated as well. Thanks.

What platform are you using PC or Mac? <BR> <BR>The epic water housing will do just fine! <BR> <BR>If you find that you want something better get one from <a href="http://www.waterhousings.com" target="_blank">www.waterhousings.com</a> he builds for the best in the industry!

I'm going to be stuck using PC. <BR>Those housings look nice, But I just found a used epic for 75 online, If I can scoop up something that cheap i'd be excited.

I would go adobe if you can afford it. Also, if you're a student or you have a friend, you can get a pretty significant discount.

Or Piratebay offers a pretty significant discount

Anyone using anything other than Adobe that they like?

steezyshots 01-29-2009 9:57 PM

Use Adobe!

Ha Alright, Killing my budget though.

For basic DV editing that Premiere Elements sounds like a great package, I'm sure you can find it for under $100.

If you know anyone getting rid of the Epic Pro housing let me know.
