  1. During a night dive in the red sea this squid passed by. Any tips to further improve it? Photo is taken with a Sony RX100 mk2 (Nauticam housing) and one Sea & Sea YS-01 strobe. No extra lenses used.
  2. Last 3 weeks I was in Croatia, also for some diving. I was diving from the islands Krk & Hvar. Had a great time, lots of nudi's and octopuses. Here are 4 of the photo's I like the most. Some more photo's over here: https://flic.kr/s/aHskjhGLy4 All photo's are taken with a Sony RX100II and a YS-01 strobe. Some of them with a snoot & macro lenses. If you have any comments/tips, please share it with me 1. 2. 3. 4.
  3. Thank you steve. I agree with you that I have to should more in portrait mode to get on the cover of a magazine
  4. I'm not sure, but I think the UCL-165 is about +7. The subsee +5 is I think not enough macro, but it completly depends on your subject. Some nudi's are quite big, some small . For example: single x UCL-165: https://flic.kr/p/pewcYH dual x UCL-165: https://flic.kr/p/s4WiJA Getting the correct part of the subject in focus with a single UCL-165 is difficult, but with stacked UCL-165's is even harder! I use manual focus with focus peaking, but still it is very hard. I'm currently thinking about buying a wide angle lens (uwl-04 or uwl-(h)100). However, they are pretty pricy.
  5. The nudi was not cropped. It was a big nudi I didn't do much macro stuff in Egypt. Here in the Netherlands macro is often the only option because of the visibility. Check this album for some macro foto's with single & dual UCL-165 lenses: https://flic.kr/s/aHsk32jwXC
  6. Focusing of the RX100II is very good. I didn't have any problems with it. I don't use a focus/guide light, not even in the Netherlands where the visibility is often really bad. For these Picutres I've used multi spot AF, all without any wet lenses. I have two close up lenses (UCL-165). When using these I'll use manual focus. Just move the camera forwards and backwards to get your subject in focus using the focus peaking feature of the RX100.
  7. Last week I was scuba diving in Egypt (Hurgada). I normally dive in the Netherlands, so diving in the crystal clear waters and making photo's was already really great. Please let me know which you like & dislike and feel free to give any tips on how to improve my photography skills further. All photo's are taken with my RX100II in a nauticam housing with one YS-01. I didn't use my UCL-165 macro lens. All photos are shot in RAW. The full album is here: https://flic.kr/s/aHska9i3rF 1. DSC04361 by Bram de Roos, on Flickr 2. DSC04425 by Bram de Roos, on Flickr 3.

  8. A week ago I've made my own snoot using a plastic bottle and duct tape: These are the results: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9.
  9. Hi I'm Bram from the Netherlands. Bought a Sony RX100 with Nauticam housing some months ago and really enjoy using it.
