In Topic: Best BCD for New Underwater Photographers

05 March 2013 - 09:39 AM

Just purchased a Mares Prestige MRS and found it to be great!  I enjoyed it trememdously on my last dive week in Costa Rica from which I returned from on March 2nd.  I enjoyed the arm and shoulder freedom, integrated weight system great boyancy at the bottom while taking pictures.  2 Large pockets and lots of D rings to hook equipment to!

Hi everyone!  Newb here and to UW photography!  Jumped in with:

 

Olympus EPM1 camera

Olympus Zuiko II R 14-42mm lens

Olympus PT-EP06 housing

Sea & Sea YS-D1 strobe

iTorch Pro 5 video lamp

iDas tray and arms

 

I'm looking for tips, tricks and ideas.  I was surprized to see that there is no Automatic Scene selection for UW photography on the EPM1.  In addition I found out there is no zoom ring included with the PT-EP06 housing much to my chagrin at 65' down in Jaco, Costa Rica.  So your thoughts on best settings and lens would certainly be appreciated.

 

Remember it with a picture, thanks!
