We took advantage of being in Florida at DEMA to go and visit the charming manatees

We went with Birds Underwater, a nice operation on the whole.

Lots of lovely reflections

How did the 70d perform underwater?

Stunning pictures, btw.

Excellent low light performance, the bottom shot was taken at 7am with very low light and visibility using ISO1000. No significant grain in the image to my eye.

 

I think the 3D Continuous Autofocus on the Nikon works better than the AI-Servo on the Canon but may be that I’m not as used to it.

 

Image detail is very nice with good dynamic range.

Brilliant -  good work with the reflections, and the play of the light on the manatees' bodies. Also nice to have a person in the image for a sense of size.
