Hi!  I just joined Wetpixel.  I am a pretty good dry land photographer.  I have been doing UW stuff for a while and still learning.  I currently shoot an Olympus TG-5 with housing and video lights.  I am looking to move to a FF Nikon in the near future.  The main thing I am trying to figure out is what lens(s) I will want to acquire for this.  I live in Southwest Georgia and dive mostly in the Florida waters.

Hi!  I just want to share my wonderful experiences with Devon at Pacific Housing Repair in California.  After flooding my Sea and Sea Strobe years ago he spent quite a bit of time on the phone with talking about how to prevent flooding, and with my repaired strobe sent me a cleaning kit including a remote control (a tv remote) that I could use to test the strobe.  Just recently I upgraded the stobes.  After a little use, one had a problem.  I called the shop I bought them from and was told I'd have to mail the strobe in.  I live in Cozumel, so that's challenging and expensive.  I remembered my wonderful chat with Devon several years previously. I called him.  With extreme patience he walked me through the multiple steps he would've done.  Da Tum!  It was fixed, and he told me about a port unknown to me that had O rings requiring greasing.  And, we had a lovely chat.  I absolutely recommend him.

Hi, I'm 29 years recently moved from Switzerland to sunny Califronia. Im new to underwater photography. I have a technical sense of imaging in general as I use  electron and confocal microscopy, atomic force microscopy and the like for work. In my spare time I like to do astrophotography, you can find some of my work on astrobin: https://www.astrobin...s/justusliebig/
