Fantastic dive sunday with my buddy Rob. We sat 4 Giant Pacific Octopus at Point Lobos State Reserve in Carmel, CA. One of them was quite interactive.

This year, after 20 years of diving open circuit, I got certified to dive on a closed-circuit rebreather. My class was at the beginning of July, and I had to put aside my camera for a while afterwards so I could become comfortable with new buoyancy and other skills. The first day I took my camera back out, I was pretty nervous; I could hardly shoot for constantly checking my pO2. That dive day coincided with what we in Southern California see as a nearly annual event - an influx of jellyfish that come in briefly, then disappear. This year's jelly was a pretty uncommon one, the black sea nettle. (I had only seen one of these before, years ago, and it was pretty beaten up.) Seeing tens of them in the water column on this day was incredible. We brought some friends out to shoot them 2 days later, and the vis and jelly numbers had dropped precipitously.
This image was my favorite of the year because it was the first real encounter I'd had with these creatures...and most of all because it was my first day getting used to diving a rebreather with my camera in hand. I didn't take many photos, but because there weren't a bunch of exhalation bubbles, I got a few keepers anyways.
Here's to great diving and successful shooting in 2013!!

Different people use different ways to achieve what they want. To my concern, what is good ,what is bad, it doesn't matter. What matters to me is the process to find my own resolution while I face problem and if I can get what I want at the end.
Your comments are loud and clear regarding using different system on supporting underwater camera. And I thank you your input to my topic.
I would also like to said that my topic is BMPCC filming setting. I post my pictures is in respond to a gentleman asking a more detail regarding the platform I made to support BMPCC housing.
Please accept my apology that I open this topic is to discuss the issue relating to BMPCC housing. Other than that, you are welcome to open your topic.
Happy diving to all of you.

I just felt an urge to comment on the exceptional skills, knowledge, helpfulness, comraderie, and general quality of information posted by the wetpixel community. I guess we all have come to expect this but it is becoming a rare thing to find on the net, with many photography sites being particularly nasty, empty-minded or just congratulatory.
Kudos to all

My take is that this is really best left to the individual photographer... They should test both setups, and decide what works best for their own situation.
All superwide rectilinear lenses exhibit some corner softness. Some more than others. 17-35 is about in the middle.
As you know, some lenses require a diopter to focus behind a dome. 17-35 does not in Zen 230.
Single element closeup lenses narrow the fov, increase CA, and induce a strong pincushion distortion. They also tend to sharpen up corners. But how important are the corners in most shots?
Personally, I am tending to not use the diopters whenever possible, as it seems counterintuitive for me to give up the field of view and increase distortion when I don't have to. I'd rather zoom in a bit, or stop down more, in situations where corner softness will create an issue.

Alex the slow shutter Jacks is just amazing, love it.
It is extremely hard to pick a favourite but this is the one I came up with Silver Lustre. It is special for me as the model is my beautiful girlfriend.

I’m running a trip through Divequest next September to La Paz, Sea of Cortez. We decided to go and check it out beforehand and had some nice encounters with the sealions and whalesharks there.
After reading Alex M’s most recent article on models and the saleability of images with people in them, I went for some of that.
D800, Sigma 15mm, Zen 200mm dome
Then tried to get a bit of animal with animal interaction
D800, Sigma 15mm, Zen 200mm dome
Brawling bulls, Olympus OMD, 8mm Panasonic FIsheye, Fit Pro optical glass minidome
D800, Sigma 15mm
60mm macro instead of the FIsheye
Cute female, D800, 60mm macro, 2x INON Z240
Baby, D800, 60mm macro
With sunburst, D800, Sigma 15mm, 2x INON Z240
and some other animals:
Yellowtail Surgeonfish, D800, Sigma 15mm
Whaleshark, D800, Sigma 15mm
and some colours of Mexico
D800, Sigma 15mm
Hope you enjoy
