Hi, I'm Jesper.

 

I am an Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV) engineer situated in Denmark. In my daily job I am focused on the applications of artificial intelligence and computer vision. I am here to seek knowledge of camera/lens settings and operations underwater since this is a new world for me.

 

Wow, this sounds very cool!

Hi Everyone,

 

I am a relatively new diver currently living in Terrace, BC, Canada. I've been into photography for years and my current above water kit consists of a Canon 6D, 24-105mm f/4, 70-200mm f/2.8 IS Mk II, 50mm f/1.4 and 100mm f/2.8 Macro. 

 

The current underwater rig is a Canon S95 in a canon housing. I am in the process of upgrading that to a Sony RX100VA in a Fantasea housing with an Inon S-2000 strobe and a Big Blue Black Molly 3 video light mounted to an Ultralight TR-D tray.

Hey, I'm Greg. I grew up on the water in the Gulf Coast of Florida, and during college had the opportunity to travel the world taking landscape photos. I'm looking forward to diving in to underwater photography and bringing some of my new found photo skills back home to the gulf.

Hi, I currently live in beautiful Kelowna in the interior of BC Canada.

But NOT into cold water diving... did enough of that in Scotland to last a lifetime... actually, make that a couple of lifetimes!

I've been diving for 40 years and started photography about 15 years ago with a Canon point and shoot. Unfortunately, the housing was so big and bulky that it required extra luggage to bring it along on overseas trips. I lost interest and bought a Go Pro to do video but missed the macro photography. Going back to my old system a few months back but the lens mechanism jammed and decided since it was such an outdated system I would start over with a new camera.  I choose the Sony a6000 and am now looking for recommendations on housing, lens, and other equipment. I developed my own film years ago and love the instantness of digital. Doing two major trips next year to Antartica and Galapagos, so want to het the equipment now to start working with it.

Hi All,

I've been diving for a little while but just started taking underwater photos. Took a TG4 to Raja Ampat and got some nice photos but looking to learn more on how to improve these for future dives. 

 

I also shoot with an Sony a6000 on land so trying to work out if I upgrade the mirrorless kit or if I upgrade the current TG4 setup
