Diving on the Red Sea Aggressor

11 September 2015 - 07:58 AM

Here are a few of the better pics from my recent liveaboard trip on the Red Sea Aggressor.  I learned a LOT as I practiced, and I can't wait for the next trip, so that I can learn even more!

I would love it if someone could tell me what this fish is.  I assume it is some type of triggerfish??

I would also really like to know what this guy is?  He is awfully cute, is he a baby grouper???

LX100 - Underwater video shot on the Red Sea

23 August 2015 - 06:49 PM

Hi Friends

 

I just returned from my dive trip on the Red Sea in Egypt.  I have not yet edited all the photos, but I did pull together a short video of the diving.  Feedback always appreciated, here is the YouTube link (can't figure out how to do an embed):

Many thanks,

LX100 Underwater Video - Anyone else have experience with the LX100

15 March 2015 - 01:41 PM

I am mulling over the LX100 to replace my current Sony NEX-5R for underwater photography and videography -- I find I am more interested in video when I dive, than in still photos (although I do both).  I found this video, recently posted, and it looked pretty nice -- seems to have good detail, although the white balance is off in places (in my experience, a Magic Filter works wonders for U/W video).  Here is the link:
 

 

Does anyone else have experience with this camera underwater?  How does it handle? How is the video?
