Get an Olympus TG-4 and a single strobe.. small, easy to handle, no lenses to change, great macro.. Just charge the batteries

 

Piece of mind and you won't miss the photos while underwater, if i don't have a camera in my hand underwater i don't know what to do with my hands!

Great info, one last thing to remember is to "save user settings" for your custom assignments.

 

Menu->Setup menu (wrench)-> Save user settings-> OK -> save to U1 (or U2)-> OK -> Save settings

Yes, good point, the BBF does not work in U1 or 2 without saving it first. 


Great advice, Mike - thanks

 

I've never been a big BBF user. My housing seems to let me hold the shutter (on a Nikon D800 but my old D300 was the same) with the focus locked by depressing the shutter release half way: the camera focusses and then is ready for release by pushing the shutter release slightly more.

 

I have never seen the advantage of BBF over that method. Am I missing something? 

 

Yes, it saves you from a sore thumb pushing and holding that button down hahaha....

Please post examples, can't really help without.  1/250 should be more than enough to freeze the action so seems a bit strange to be honest
