I dive a Canon 650D (rebel T4i) in an Ikelite Housing with two DS51 strobes. About 50% of my work is natural light. I use either a 10-22mm zoom, a 60mm f2.8 macro or a 100mm f2.8 macro, depending on my mood and ocean conditions. Virtually all my diving is at the southern California Channel Islands. Anacapa Island is my favorite, but I'll dive them all. I started diving in 1984 and was quickly hooked. I've been a SCUBA instructor, dive shop owner, and just a plain diver (Though I still teach a student or two). I've tallied more than 4500 dives in my life and hope to make it to 10,000 some day. If I have to dive until I'm 80 to pull that off, that's okay.
