External flash with Ewa-Marine housing: too close to the body?

    I am considering buying Ewa-Marine U-AXP underwater housing
    (http://www.ewa-marine.de/english/cameras/e-uaxp.htm) for my Canon
    EOS-300D (Digital Rebel). I intend to use it with external Sigma
    EF-500 DG Super flash.

    Although U-AXP does take external flashes, I am worried that the flash
    is too close to the body. If anyone has posted pictures taken with a
    similar setup I would very much appreciate a link and any comments.

    Many thanks,

  2. I thought about that housing, strictly for the price. I have an
    EWA-Marine housing for my camcorder. It was a good thing I didn't
    need access to any buttons and it's hard to mess with that stuff
    underwater with their housings (the bag kind). I just ordered my
    Digital Rebel over the weekend from tristate camera and I think I'm
    going with the Ikelite 6870 Underwater Housing. It's a hardshell that
    gives you access to all your settings underwater. You can buy strobe
    arms for it. I know that may not help you out... but that's what I've
    been looking at for my trip to St. Lucia in November.
