  1. But what to do if fish (like this Yellow Margin Trigger Fish) is chasing you? 19min28sec to 20min30sec Some photos taken with Panasonic DMC-FT3 (TS3) compact UW camera during snorkeling and freediving: More UW photos: PHOTOS More UW movies: MOVIES I recorded everything with "naked" (no UW housing) compact UW cameras, while snorkeling or freediving up to 17 meters deep And yes, understanding the behaviour of the fish also helps a lot, also hanging still helps a lot, but most important is practice, a lot of practicing.
  2. TS1 & TS2 (FT1 & FT2) are the best (naked) compact UW cameras on the market at the moment. Some of my UW images/movies taken with this great little cameras: ________________________________________________________ My (mostly underwater) photos and videos taken during freediving with compact UW cameras (Pentax & Panasonic): photos @ http://public.fotki.com/Primoz/ video footage @ http://www.youtube.com/user/PrimozP#g/p
  3. I do not agree that the only option is D10! I am using Panasonic DMC-FT1 which is capable to take photos up to 8 meters deep and allow to record HD (720p) videos. In 2005 I bought my first underwater P&S camera Pentax OPTIO WP and after that W10,W20,W30,W60, Panasonic DMC-FT1 and two Olympus cameras 720SW and 1030SW. Apart from the Olys I was very pleased with all of them, especially with the FT1 which is really excellent. I also tested D10, but for me FT1 is better. I advise not to buy any of Olympus UW cameras, which are really tough, but IQ and movieQ are very poor. Some of my pics (Sharm el Sheikh, oct.2009 - FT1, UW scene mode, no flash, free diving up to 8 m deep): I also made some movies there: YouTube - PrimozP's Channel More Photos and videos:Public Home | Primoz | Fotki.com YouTube - PrimozP's Channel About using strobe UW:It is almost impoissible to make a decent underwater photo when using flash which is lying almost on the same optical axis as the lenses (embedded flashes on compact cameras). Typical UW photo with flash:
  4. Until now I had 7 UW compact cameras: 5 Pentax W cameras (WP,W10,W20,W30 and W60) and 2 Olympus SW (720 and 1030). At the moment I'am using Panasonic DMC-FT1, which (by my criteria) is the best. iA mode, UW mode and image stabilisation are simply the best in UW P&S camera segment, also AVCHD movies are awesome good.
