In Topic: Photographing an eclipse from underwater

22 July 2009 - 12:04 PM

As promised, I am reporting in after the eclipse. We actually received an 88% coverage of the sun here in Kosrae, Micronesia. It was a nice cloud free afternoon, but windier than normal. So there was no chance of a shot from underwater with the surface chop. The light didn't drop as much as we expected, but there was a noticeable drop in temperature, which was nice since we are 400 miles north of the equator. Sitting on the boat I placed a pair of 75 cent eclipse glasses over my camera lens & took a few dozen shots using many different settings. Attached are a couple of shots.

Hi Randall,

I appreciate the info, & I have just put a note in my diary to post here after the eclipse. Sounds like there will be more hope of nocturnal critters coming out for a photo than of the eclipse itself.

Nice photo!

Thanks for that info Tim. I was planning on diving between 5 to 10 metres, as it will be our 3rd dive that day (3.45 pm eclipse). I don't have a strobe as yet, so I might try to silhouette some coral in a few shots. At worse, if there's cloud cover & a lumpy surface, I'm hoping that a few nocturnal critters will pop out when the light drops.

I'm wondering if my Sony HC9 will fit in it. I just went to Aquatica's website, but I can't find any mention of them there. Anyone know where I can more info online?
