First of all a little introduction to myself.
I am Peter from Germany and found this Forum by accident. My English is mot the greates and therefore apologies for any typo or grammar mistakes you find. I must admit such Forums in Germany are almost dead or nothing really exiting. Therfore I hope I can pic a few informations up in this forum and share also my experiences.
To my Person.
I am 46 years old (soon) and dive since I am 16. My son started recently and we all going this summer to Sulawesi /Bunaken & Lembeh Straight.
I do UW-Photograpy the last 25 years, started with Nikkonos3 and then switched some years ago to digital.
Actually started digital with my Canon Ixus6 4 years ago which now rests at the bottom of the Spiegel Grove in Florida.
Don't ask me why and how...but I am sure the Camera is at 40 m. Anyone found it...please send it to me ;-)
After so many years of UW Photography and carrying a lot of luggage (Airlines give you hell these days with additional luggage) I have decided to downsize from my D70 to ???
I thinking of Nikon Coolpix P7100 (because I had Nikon since I dive) or alternatively Canon Powershot G12.
I am really looking for an affordable compromise and also to get fairly good Pics and Films.
Making HD Movies is another factor that keeps me busy. What I have seen so far both Coolpix and Powershot the HD Films are quite good.
The Coolpix with the Ikelite housing has the advantage of TTL usage of my DS160
Now is the question what would you guys recommend? Or has anyone similar experiences or better ideas.
