Nikon D7000, Aquatica AD7000

Here are a few shots taken this week with my Nikon D7000 and Aquatica AD7000 housing. Tokina 10-17mm was used @ 10mm as I havnt got the zoom gear for the lens yet. Ikelite Ds161 strobes were also used.
I have bought a new laptop and havnt had the chance to calibrate the laptops monitor or get the HMDI cable to DVI required for my main monitor. This means I havnt edited any of the photos provided yet and they are just resized shots straight from the camera.
I had the chance this week to do several dives at my local dive site of Julian Rocks, Byron Bay and also had the Chance to dive Fish Rock, South West Rocks which in my opinion has some of the best diving in Australia.

Nice lighting in tricky conditions on both sets of pics. Did you use your strobes in ttl or manual?
I shot in manual. Unfortunately latey we have an average vis of 10-15m....I would like to try the sunbursts out when it gets really clear.

I really like the attention to the framing in the batfish shot.

Here is my first effort at using the video on the D7000. I just turn the thing onto video mode and record.....

Be great to see how you go when you get on top of the video settings.

What a beautiful sequence. Looks like the manta got VERY close at the end.
I was shooting at 10mm which means I was very close. This young female played with me for over 40mins until I had to come up. She would come right up and hover and fake away and come back for more.

Did you have your DS-161's video lights running for either of those videos?
Nice shots and movies!

I didnt have the video lights of the Ikelites DS161 turn on. I dont think much of the light output of the DS161, might be good for macro as there isnt enough grunt.
I like the look of the Sola1200 as I have seen them in action.
