  1. That was one taken while snorkeling, but i dont have a strobe setup at the moment. Im thinking i will wait until i have my SLR setup going before i play with strobes. Unless i can get a cheapish strobe setup that you know of for an ixus??
  2. Hi, I have never tried to use custom white balance on my camera before (canon ixus 85is) and was just wondering when you would set the custom balance? At the start of the dive? during the dive? I have been doing a bit of reading on setting up the WB and apparently using a slate is a good way of adjusting it when underwater? I will be getting in the water in a couple of days to have a play around with the settings and im just hoping i come out with at least some pictures that are viewable! (Yes i'm a newbie so please be kind!!!) haha Cheers
