GREAT info jet.
Went back through my manual and purchased underwater photographers guide which was recommended on here, starting to read it already and starting to understand exactly what the he'll happened few weeks back, really sucks cause I got one really amazing photo of a moray and it looks like crap. I'm gonna set ome my modes tonight with the f iso and shutter I want then practice in the tub on my toes and around the house, ur settings are also very helpful as a guide. I have been told I'm way too much of a newbie to shoot in RAW but I also heard it gives you the most control on your pics (assuming your not an idiot like me nd your pictures are decent to begin with) if I'm shooting underwater in RaW does it take the camera a long time to be ready for a new shot or Is that only when transferring images? I want really nice shots and am willing to spend the time learning about the Photoshop cs5 and techniques so is shooting in jpeg not worth it or what?

Thanks everyone for being so helpful with me. I used Photoshop to get the setting this was taken with. F/2.8, 1/30, +1.7, iso100, focal length 16.5MM, flash says it did not fire, compulsatory mode??
Going to take some of your advice and fix some of the settings on land and then retry the flash on land before I go diving again this weekend. I also bought that book on kindle to review.

Thank you everyone for the replies. I was shooting in my mode/manual. I got the camera second hand so just kept the settings he had used for underwater photo as I'm new to photography in general, not familiar with terms etc...
Can anyone "dumb down" what they're asking me to find? I feel pretty bad about not knowing this info but really want to get competent with it. Any books as well that may be useful?
Thank you all so very much
