Took a first trip to Cozumel recently with Aldora Divers. Here are highlights from 30 dives. Comments and critiques are welcome!

Hi Stephen,
very nice macro shots! What have you used for that?
The WB is sometimes tricky ;-))

Thanks for the cenotes / caves, its time to go there again....
 

Regards,
Wolfgang

Excellent. Shows that also a slightly more 'matured' Sony camcorder is fully up to the job in the right hands.

I agree, your WB looks much better than I had ever been able to get with my old Sony camcorders, so I gave up and went to Canon.  Very nice video, brings back memories.  I may have to re-visit Cozumel again.

Thanks!

 

I used the sony cx550 for the macro shots on a tripod. I manually white balance with a grey slate. The makes for more accurate colors--in addition to video lights!

No wet macro. The bluefin housing has an internal flip macro diopter for close focus. The camera itself has a 10X optical zoom.

The advantages of a camcorder over a photo-centric system ;-)
