Help for First Timer

09 November 2005 - 03:04 PM

I recently purchased a PC110 camera with an Ocean Images housing from a friend. I have been shooting stills for years and got this rig as a test to see if I like UW video. I have had lots of fun creating family videos for my kids on my Mac and want to try underwater.

I am looking for any basic, general tips on shooting UW video. White balance, focus tips anything that can help. I leave for Komodo in few weeks and need hep. Thanks in advance.

Strange worm from Cozumel

27 October 2005 - 07:05 PM

Found this worm in Cozumel. It was about 1 inch in diameter and the portion not buried in the sand was about 10 inches long. As I approached it slowly rectracted back into the sand. I couldn't find it in my books. If I knew it was an oddball I would have taken other shots. What is it?

Photo Contest Scoring Machine/System

18 October 2005 - 09:14 PM

I am with the Houston Underwater Photographic Society (http://www.hups.org). As part of our monthly meetings we have photocontests. We have a 10+ year old scoring machine that allows 3 judges to score images and it then adds these scores to come up with a total score for each image. The scores are displayed so the audience can see them. This aging judging machine is in need of repair again and before we send it off I thought we should see what other photo clubs are using. Are any of you using a scoring machine or doing these functions on a laptop or are you usng paper and pen? Any suggestions would be appreciated.
