Awesome, I've been using the 10bar (without laser) and found it REALLY easy to use on with my RX100ii setup.

My understanding is that part of the problem is that although snoots in general try to funnel or even shape light, it does come out somewhat off centre with regards to the position of the focus light on most strobes (z330 may be a slight exception).

Interesting, I’d not heard this before. Any thoughts, Oskar?

Tim, did you manage to find one? I'm considering buying one myself now...

I bought one and really like it - although I found it a steep and, at times, frustrating learning curve. I did a write up - see the link.

Hi polpotto

Chris makes a very good point.

Without wanting to cool your enthusiasm, it would be very wise to be confident and capable with your dive skills before starting with photography underwater. For example buoyancy control and remaining neutral in the water need to be instinctive and second nature. There are very real risks of drifting to the depths without realising it if, as really easily happens, you are absorbed by taking photos or playing with camera gear. I can vouch for this from personal experience!

Scuba diving is a superb sport but it really needs time and experience before you reach a level of ability that allows for photography. Please don’t underestimate this.

Nice idea!

Can I inject another idea which has worked well for me....

Look for interesting, neutral space possibly monochromatic background. Then sit and wait to see what comes on to it.
