In Topic: poor eye sight and diving masks when using a camera

Not sure where you are, but I know this mob post all over the world.

you simply give Rob your optical prescription, send him your mask, indicate where on the mask you want the lenses and he sends it right back.
My photography improved quite literally with the first dive I did with them; I'm getting a second mask done in case I lose the first one. Can't dive without it now.

In Topic: Fish are so frustrating! How to get close?

I... And a patient buddy if you must have one.

....don't know what I'd do without my very patient buddy also known as my husband! While I wait for the fish to settle down in a particular spot, he is calmly floating around tapping his fingers on his SPG and taking in the scenery! ^_^
He also keeps an eye on where we are, where the boat is, and what interesting critter I may be interested in!
For some reason I lose my bearings after getting up close and personal with something and being upside down while doing it!

In Topic: Newbie Must Read: What new system did you just buy?

Hi there!
New to WP....
I'm a South African in Australia and have a photography addiction which has made my diving interesting to say the least!
My first u/w set-up is a Canon S90 with housing and I've had it about a year now. Learning heaps every single day.
I also recently got a prescription mask which was amazing! The quality of my shots improved within the first dive!
Whilst I know I am a long way off buying an SLR, I can see the advantages of those lenses ^_^ but I do believe getting the technique right is probably more important than the gear you use.
Have only recently started shooting in RAW as well as JPG, and now my next learning curve is the software side of things.
Two frustrations I have with the S90; slow shutter speed when you don't need it, limitations with macro settings and the fact the controls on the housing are so different to the actual camera - wish the little books were waterproof so I could check up on things underwater!

Looking forward to learning from the experts here...
