Hi, I have been doing UW photography for several years now. Have used different type of gear over the years. My favorite, as a compromised between form and function, is the  micro 4/3 line. Currently, using an Aquatica A EM1. Thinking about upgrading, just in case anyone is interested in buying. Cheers.

Hi friends. Been diving and photographing for about as long as I've had my current teeth. Active in South Florida, and expect to hunt for currently discontinued photo gear.


Life is short. Drink the good wine first.

Hello Dive Community:

I Peter Peart.

Let me introduce myself.  I love diving. I live in the Washington DC area and just retired.

I just returned from a diving trip to Curacao. It is lovely place to dive, especially where I have stayed on all my previous 8 trips there. There is a very active house reef easily accessible from the apartments. There are always tanks available 24/7 and a wonderful and secured gear room.

Than said, I have been fortunate over the years to have gotten wet, in the Caribbean, Indonesia, and Iceland. 

Traveling the world and hauling all the gear is one of the few drawbacks to sport. But I trust and know my gear and deal with the hauling, pulling and paying that comes with toting from place to place.

As an avid photographer, there is also that additional gear. And as photographic life has gotten more sophisticated, I am always upgrading and tinkering to find the best setup possible. The irony is that after every dive trip, I always seem to find something to tweak, either by addition or subtraction. Someone's setup gives me ideas and I act.

Anyway, this is the first of many posts and don't want to bore you. 

 

Regards,

Peter

Howdy, all! I'm a 57 year old ER doc from Washington State. I've been diving six years, but only recently picked up a camera. I'm using an Olympus 6020 Stylus Tough (mainly because I flooded my first camera, a Dimage, and it did serious psychological damage) and hoping for some help in improving my technique with the camera.


Hi. Im an ED NP in Hawaii. Been a photographer for 38 years, with several years (80s) as a Seattle Times staff photographer. Shooting underwater is a whole nother can of worms but great fun. The biggest thing you can do to improve images underwater is get close and use an off-camera strobe or two. You can make some good images with your Olympus.

Hello all,

I'm an UK diver, been interested in photography for a while and finally bought my first UW camera system (S95 with Ikelite housing) less than a year ago. Unfortunately I just had an issue with it and lost a camera to flooding... http://images.wetpix...MO_DIR#/cry.gif Now I'm feeling a bit scared of it happening again, and a friend recommended I join this forum to get some help!

Cheers
Elena


Hi Elena. Be fearless! The S95 is a nice little camera. You will be able to pick one up second hand if your housing is still serviceable. I think many of us have lost cameras. Ive even had a new point and shoot float away when I thought I had it clipped to my BC! Do make certain that you remove, clean and lightly relive the o-ring with every session.

Best,
Craig
