Hello everyone!

My name is Dania, I am portuguese, and I did my Dive Master in Australia as a underwater photographer. In total i worked there for 10 months and I was using a Canon 70D. now I will start to work as a freelancer, and I was wandering about which camera to buy. I have a Canon 100D, and my plan was to get a housing for it (since it's very light, and I do travel a lot). do you think that that would be enough, or would you recommend me to upgrade to something else? I welcome all your suggestions (even though probably I cannot afford a full frame, and it would be too heavy anyways!) :D

Thank you so much!

Dania

Hi all!
My name is Stefan, and i am from Denmark.
I am a beginner at photography and videography.
I am looking for the right equipment to replace my existing. And i dont understand why all brands focus on 4K video when 2.7K look very good on a 4K TV.
The price is the frame rate 30fps is too slow, with 2.7K it should be possible with rodays equipment to record with 60fps
Well i will look for answers other places in this forum
Dive safe.
Stefan

Look forward to chatting to you all.

Hi, I'm Nancy from New York. I have been diving on/off for about 15yrs. I just picked up UW photography about 3yrs ago. I have an Olympus OMD EM-5II with Nauticam housing/12-50mm zoom lens/WWL-1/Sea&Sea YS-D2 strobe. Most of my photography has been in the Caribbean but I would love to branch out as I am still learning how to achieve the potential of my system, which is also what brought me to this website. A whale shark encounter is high on my bucket list.

Hi, 
i'm a Belgian freediving instructor currently working & training in the Philippines. I shoot under water photos on one breath.
For now, still with GoPro Hero 4 Silver. Editing with Davinci Resolve 14 and Lightroom.

I am especially interested in color correcting for UNDER WATER gopro protune settings:
white balance: native
color: flat
iso limit: 800 (or 400?)
sharpness: low
ev compensation: -1.0

Thanks!
PS. i will also look for a more professional camera, so any tips on that are welcome.

Greetings.  I'm an avid UW photographer who is finally taking the step from compact camera to mirrorless m4/3 UW gear.  It'll be a learning curve, so here I am looking to take it all in and ask questions!
