Sound of Mull 2015

25 June 2015 - 10:09 AM

A few shots from my recent trip to the Sound of Mull, Scotland. This was the first "full" week I've had diving with the new camera setup, and I'm pretty happy with how the shots have turned out. Only problem was that I couldn't use full manual on the strobes (bit too fiddly with 5mm gloves in cold water), so these were shot TTL. Experimented with inward lighting techniques, and tried at darker backgrounds. All shot with Oly EM-10/Nauticam housing, with twin Z240 strobe (0.5 diffuser), 9-18mm lens or 14-42mm lens. Comments welcome.












record button

has anyone had their record button seem to not work on a dive? did the morning dive with my em-10 and it worked fine whem i tried it at my deco stop. hiwever next dive it did not work the entire dive. there was sufficient space on the sd card for taking a video however. it was almost like the button was not aligned. has anyone else experienced this with a nauticam housing?

Slight Faux Pas..

09 June 2015 - 03:35 AM

Looking back over some of my previous posts, I realised that I'd never actually done a proper introduction! :o .


I'm Steve, and I've been diving about 15 years since learning at University. I'm based in Berkshire, UK. I've dabbled in UW photography since 2007 with point and shoots, but only really started to get more serious in the last couple of years as funds/time allowed. BSAC diver, mostly UK diving, but have ventured abroad in the past to Red Sea, Maldives, Malta. Nowhere more exotic I'm afraid :nea:


My images are starting to improve, and I can say that I've been published for the first time in SCUBA (BSAC mag) August edition last year which I'm fairly happy with (although I'm sure I could improve on hopefully!). Currently diving with a EM-10/Twin Z240 setup, but still very much early days.. looking forward to contributing/learning very much from this forum!

Nauticam vacuum error

29 March 2015 - 06:26 AM

Battery died on my vacuum sensor so replaced it, however it wont work right. With switch in off position, the led is flashing red. When its on, its solid red and sometimes gives audio warning.. no blue light or anything. Ive never had a leak or anything however...worked fine previously any ideas?

Temperate water photography lenses

21 July 2014 - 05:30 AM

For those of us who dive in cooler and more temperate climes, or simply arent disappearing to warm waters a few times a year, what lenses do you find the most used in the darker and more particulated waters? Asking as i'm considering my first lens purchase (apart from the kit lens obviously). I wont be heading abroad for a while, so want to buy a lens which I'll get the most/best use out of in the meantime, before eventually extending my lens collection. Options im looking at are

Olympus 60mm macro
Olympus 45mm
Panasonic 8mm fisheye
Olympus 9-18mm WA
Panasonic 7-14mm WA.

I like shooting both wide angle and macro, but can only afford 1 extra lens/port at the moment...
