In Topic: Decided on a new micro 4/3 setup now need help deciding on which camera?

My opinion would be go for an EM1 with 60mm for macro. 

You have mentioned a 12-50, I would go for the 12-40 pro every day of the week. You will need a dome port for this lens, but the quality is great.


In Topic: Do I need a flash?

Hi lala,

 

I have done lots of snorkelling as well as diving in the Maldives. I would not worry about a strobe, you will get close enough to the fish and corals (and fingers crossed other things) not need one in the clear shallow waters of the reefs edge. One thing I would say is try and take pictures in shallow water so you are letting lots of ambient light in. There is a LOT of life at 2m and under.

Have a great trip.

If I remember rightly the instructions of the sea and sea strobes at least the YS D1 have a guide of setting it up the correct way by pointing it at the camera and taking a picture..... If you see the flash it the picture it will be firing at the right time.
