Hi all, Tim from Dorset. I'm afraid diving isn't my thing ( I can sense this might cause trouble!!) but I'm about to go snorkelling with Humpbacks off Silver Bank and would appreciate some advice from the experts on this here.
I'm expecting to buy some new kit as I really don't want to get a housing for my 7D - so I'm leaning towards M4/3rds, although a G11/12 in a Canon housing is a possibility. I'm thinking one of the Olympus Pens plus Oly housing. I don't understand the 'dome' aspect. I'm thinking that for Humpbacks I'm gonna need a decent wide angle. Thanks in advance everyone.

Tim

Greetings all, I'm Ardi from Bali, just started diving 2 years back, and shoot some pictures using a pocket camera. Now I'm upgrading my system to G12-Ikelite-Z240, looking forward to dig some info around this forum. :B):

Cheers.

Hi.

I am Russell from Philadelphia PA. Just had two dive trips where I was unable to bring my camera due to a faulty strobe :-(. Unfortunately Ikelite did not want to repair due to age, and i am not in the posistion to upgrade right now.

I have a trip coming up in a month so i hope to be able to service the strobe myself, with help from you all!

Thanks!

Hi, my name is Michael, and although I have been taking snapshots underwater for several years, I have now purchased a more sophistacated setup, as I am diving again after a 26+ year rest! All my previous experience was during my snorkelling years, but last year I passed my SCUBA medical for the first time since I had to give up diving!

Hi guys/gals a quick hello to introduce myself. I have been visiting this site for a while and found it quite interesting. I live just Sth of Byron Bay and mostly dive my local site Julian Rocks with Giac and the crew from Sundive. I have only been shooting a couple of years and have recently upgraded from a G9/ Ikelite set up to a Nikon D7000, Tok. 10-17 with 8" dome and a Nikon 60 Macro. Am enjoying having a lot more stuff to fiddle with but at the same time finding it a bit more challenging !!! I have a couple of issues with the 10-17 and D7000 that I will post later in a different part of the forum as I need to do this post first before I can post !
Happy shooting,
Cheers, John

I've just registered her and would like to write "hallo" from Gdynia, Poland.
I'm not a diver but love to snorkel and I hope to find some useful tips here regarding taking pictures (and making movies) of underwater creatures...

Best regards, Bartek

Hi All -

Just joined the forum - But its not for a happy reason I'm afraid - I loved underwater photography and even had a few whale shark shots published in SHARKDIVER MAGAZINE, but lately work and life stuff has been overwhelming - SO I really signed up to try and list my Ikelite D50 rig and strobe.

Its been a fun run but time to pass this stuff on to someone who will give it more use that I can ;) I have browsed the forums silently for a while and have enjoyed the site, - - which I can still do even though I wont be shooting anymore!

Hello. John from Seattle. Wife said I need to sell old gear before I can buy new. Buddy told me listing it here was better than anywhere else.

Heading to Cabo in a few days, hope to get a few pixels wet.

Hi,

My name is Jens and I just signed up here because many told me this is a good way to advertise some used gear that I'd like to sell (a complete FIX G10 setup). I want to sell that because I finally decided to get an Nauticam 7D housing. Alas, before I can post I need to reply to a thread first, and that's what I do now :D

This link is broken: We recommend introducing yourself as a reply to this post. (Any admin out there can look into this? Cheers!)

Anyway, I've been diving for more than 11 years now, and I'm currently PADI MSDT certified. Got CMAS certified in mid December in Germany and we actually had to poke holes into a thin layer of ice. Then I moved to Australia for a couple of years before I ended up in Seattle about seven years ago; that's where I still live and dive most of the time. Although I do travel _a_lot_ and dive all over the world. We've got a small group of people here, all obsessed with photography, and we spend heaps of (long) weekends diving all over Vancouver Island or the Northern Puget Sound.

Keep smiling :)
