G'day Wetpixers!

Long time lurker, first time poster.
I'm currently working on the whaleshark boats on Ningaloo Reef in Western Australia. I highly recommend coming here to visit the reef and the sharks.

Looking to get a nice underwater set up for my Canon 70D. My lovely ladyfriend is also wanting to get more involved in videography over here, so we'll be keeping our eyes on the Classifieds section.

Cheers,

Davey Jones

Hello,

I made the switch from shooting the fish with a spear to shooting them with a camera about a year ago.  It's been great.   Looking forward to learning from the folks here.

Hi,

I'm Paul from Connecticut. At present, I have 70 dives under my belt and quickly added photography to diving after getting certified. Currently, I'm using a micro 4/3 setup with a Nauticam housing. Some of the more interesting places I've dived include Iceland, Northern Ireland, Fiji and soon Lofoten, Norway. I love the combination of travel, photography and diving while meeting many interesting people with similar interests.

Hi I'm Marisa from California.

 

I'm a beginner diver and am here to up my diving and underwater photography game. I've been photographing terrestrial species for about ten years and shoot with a Nikon D810. A friend of mine let me borrow his Nauticam housing last year, and now I'm addicted. My goal is to pick up some Nauticam housing of my own (and to learn more tricks and tips about shooting underwater).

Hi,
my name is Kate... my happy place is underwater. I live in Sydney, Australia, have been diving for five years. Fortunately, there is a lot of wonderful diving in Sydney however, I do love to travel to the warmer waters above Australia,  Sulawesi and Raja Ampat having been highlights so far.
I have been shooting underwater for about 4 years starting out with a borrowed rig, then buying a second hand Canon G12 in a Patima housing, ( which I still have but don't use because the housing is too heavy for me)  then on to a Nikon D7200 and Nauticam rig.... and thought that I had what I needed... I would love a mirrorless... 

I too have had the misfortune of a failing Sea and Sea Y2D2, out of warranty, of course. :angry2:

 

I still suffer gear envy/lust and am confident that one day I will win the lottery and be able to do all the travel and photography I want! 
I have 'expensive' friends who continually 'suggest' me other things to add to my set-up, I am currently looking for 20mm and 40mm extension rings with a lock so to tweak my existing rig. 

I enjoy browsing these pages and am so happy to have found the reason as to why I have been unable to post anything!  :clapping:
