I have now joined this club and have the camera with 12-50 kit lens, Nauticam housing, port and zoom gear plus 2 inon 240s. I used it for the first time yesterday and was impressed by the ease of use of the housing and the smooth transition between macro and e-zoom settings. I only did a shallow shore dive so didn't have much opportunity for wide angle but macro setting was pretty impressive. I need more dives with the rig before I decide whether to dispense with my canon 7d in ikelite housing but the size and usability of the oly in the Nauticam was really good. Special praise must go to Alex Tattersall who patiently out of hours answered some of my dumb queries about putting the zoom/macro gear.

Thanks, Steve. Trial and error is the honest answer! I've got loads of shots where the tarpon are blown out, where the silversides are, where they're underexposed etc. I just kept tweaking settings and strobe positions until I got something that looked the business. I've reduced exposure a notch from the raw file in Aperture, too.

This is one of my favourites from a couple of weeks ago. I could have spent ages at the site. Good reason to go back again, though!

Thanks for sharing Dave! I am just back from GC and dived that site. It was fab. I didn't take any video but I did take stills, particularly trying to get shots of the silverside parting for the tarpon. The tarpon were fascinating to watch as they cruised through the shoals. Your video brought back nice memories!
