Gus (et al),

Here is the set-up that you said you used for your SCUBA trip...

Digital Rebel XT, EF-S 60mm f/2.8 macro (most photos), EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 (turtle and manta #1), Ikelite housing, two DS-51 strobes, flat port for the macro lens, 8" dome housing for the wide angle lens.

If (that's a big IF) I go the DSLR route, will I need to buy anything other than:

Digital Rebel XTi (comes with an EF-S 18-55mm lens)
Ikelite housing
Ikelite DS-51 strobe

I just want to make sure if (that's a big IF) I buy this stuff, will it actually work when I get there, or will I be missing a piece and everything else is useless without it.

Do I need a dome housing?
For the strobe, do I want a manual controller or a sync cord?
