  1. Hello again, I'd like to conduct an informal poll on the White Balance settings you folks like to use underwater with your Sonys. I did a lot of underwater photography back in the days of film, but have not yet shot any digital underwater, and figuring out white balance settings is a major concern for me right now. I'm headed to Mexico next week with my a6300, but I think all the Sony Full Frame and Mirrorless bodies from the last couple of years are fairly similar in terms of their white balance characteristics. I've read so many posts on this WB topic recently that my brain is just fried. Some say you should take a custom white balance every 10-15 feet, some say if you do this the Sonys throw an error because the reading will be outside the 9900k color temp limit, some say just set the WB manually to 9900k and add a +7 M tint, some say Underwater Auto White Balance works well enough, some say just Auto White Balance is fine, one guy posted PDFs of A4 size color swatches he made that simulate UW color cast, and that you can print those out and take a custom WB reading from them in daylight. Wow, so many freaking choices! Last time I took photos underwater the only 'White Balance' options were either Kodachrome or Fuji . I'll be shooting video as well as stills, using Sony's 10-18mm wide angle zoom. I'll be diving on the Pacific side of Mexico. I expect visibility of only about 30-40 feet. For video I have a Kraken Hydra 2000 lumen video light mounted on the cold shoe of my Nauticam housing on a 4 inch flexi arm. My plan was to use Sony's Underwater White Balance for video, because I'm afraid if I set a custom White Balance for the ambient light, anything illuminated by the light will be too red. Is this a valid concern? But I've read that Auto WB can change the color cast of your video abruptly and is best avoided. I think I'm going to shoot XACV-S in 4k, but I'd rather not have to do any color grading in post. What settings do you folks like to use for WB for UW video with a light? For stills I'll have two Sea & Sea YS-D2 strobes with diffusers. My plan for stills is to use Sony's Flash White Balance setting. That should give me good color for whatever is illuminated by the flash, but I'm not sure how the background water column is going to look. I will be shooting RAW, so I'm thinking I'll have enough latitude to adjust the background water to a color that is pleasing if need be. Does this sound like a good plan? What WB setting do you like to use on your Sony for Wide Angle stills with strobes? One other quick question - do you think I'll need to kill the video light prior to shooting a still? I'm concerned it could cast unwanted shadows or add a color cast, but maybe the strobe will be so much brighter it won't matter. Thanks for all your help guys and gals!

  6. My new video of small critters from the Lembeh Strait and Anilao. Filmed with a Panasonic GH4 in a Nauticam NA-GH4 housing with either 2 x Keldan Luna 4X lights or 2 x FIX Neo 1000 DX SW II lights. I used an Olympus M.Zuiko ED 12-50mm f3.5-6.3 EZ lens and a Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 60mm f/2.8 macro lens. On some shots I used a Nauticam Compact Macro Converter CMC-1. Xit404 tripod. The UHD footage was downsampled to 1920x1080, allowing me to crop and zoom. Only the wonderpus shot was stabilized. All feedback is welcome. Particularly, are there any weak shots, or uncomfortable edits? I may submit a refined version to a festival or two.

  8. I'm selling my Ikelite 8" modular dome + 2.75" lens extension (Ikelite product numbers 5510.45 and 5510.11). Used only a few times (literally, 3 or 4). Bought it without checking if my Nikkor 14-24mm would fit, which it doesn't, and after borrowing a 15mm prime from a friend I actually figured out that I don't like wide angle photography underwater so much. In mint condition. Comes with protective hood. Manufacturer's image of said product: http://www.ikelite.com/images/products/accessories/5511.1/5511.1-dome-kit-a.jpg I'm thinking in a price range of P20,000 or EUR400 (RRP for this set is US$550 / EUR525). I'm on Camiguin, Philipppines. Shipping costs for the buyer, within the Philippines it will be shipped insured via LBC. Price depending on destination. Since regular postal services are not very reliable here, and other services virtually unaffordable, I don't want/dare to ship this outside the Philippines. Payment via COD (in Philippines) or IBAN/SEPA transfer to my European account. Drop me a message if interested.

  11. Hey everyone! Like many, I was bitten by the dive bug and being an avid photographer, purchased an underwater camera housing system in 2014 thinking I would dive ten times a year and take a whole heap of awesome photos/video. Alas, real life has a way of bringing you back to reality and finances have dictated that the gear must go to free up funds, having been used on one dive in Canada. I currently live in Ireland but was home recently to take photos (photo files are too big so please contact me via email to see the photos!) of the gear and if there is interest, I will be back in Canada in july for a wedding and could arrange a paypal transaction and ship the gear then. I bought the gear for approx $7200.00 CAD + tax and am looking to sell it and a 10-17 tokina (nikon mount) lens (again used once with the wide angle port shown in the photos) for $6500.00 CAD + shipping. This is an unreal deal tbh as some of the gear has never been used and everything else has literally seen water once and not even salt water, for that matter. Unfortunately, given my current location, I cannot take further photos but would be happy to answer any questions you might have to the best of my ability. Thanks and hope I can find the gear a good home with someone who will put it to good use! Cheers, Adam email: adamjtoth88@gmail.com
  12. Hi Everyone, I wanted to share my latest short film. This is a followup to my award winning 'Stay With Us' film. The story will have a total of three parts. This is a film you will want to have the volume up, with some bass if possible, and watch in full HD. It was shot with the Canon 1dx with 100mm macro lens. Curious to know what feedback you all have. I hope you enjoy it. -Dustin

  14. Hi all, I am looking to acquire an old Ikelite housing made fore the Polaroid SX-70 Land Camera. I believe the housing was manufactured in the 70s or 80s so I'm not sure how lucky I'll be here but in my research I found some threads that were a few years old where people were buying/selling these housings so who knows. Fingers crossed! If anyone has tips or leads on a housing of this sort that information would also be greatly appreciated. Photos for reference: Thanks in advance!
  15. Hello everyone I am looking to progress into underwater photography with my DSLR camera. I live in Cozumel Island, here we have giant reef structures and 100 ft. plus visibility. This are perfect conditions for underwater photography and filming. I actually have a Canon T3I or 600D camera and a pair of gopro's. I would like to hear any recommendations or tips in order to buy my equipment. Should I stay with this camera? Which housing is good for me? Where can I buy it? New or used? I've done some research and this camera is pretty good for beginners, I am really interested in buying a housing for less than 200 ft. depths but they seem to be very expensive. I am and student so my budget is kind of restricted. Also I will be glad to contact or provide any recommendations to anyone who is coming to the Yucatan Peninsula. Thanks
  16. Hello everyone, I just finished up episode #10 of my 'Rolling in the Deep' series. This time we are seeing an overview of the diving around Bali Indonesia. Let me know what you think Enjoy! Dustin Or Youtube
  17. Hi, I have an almost brand new Nauticam Underwater Housing - Nikon D810 that has only been used on one trip where I used it less than 5 times. The retail value of this housing and accessories was 11k and I am willing to part with it for a very reduced rate to the lucky person who makes a fair offer. Happy to Skype and/or show videos of the air seal working. No damage or leaking occurred. I am only selling this because I am using a different body now. Please send serious inquiries to: neo@neileverosborne.com Neil
  18. Can I embed several videos in one post like this? I read one of the forum rules laid down in 2006 is "max one video per post" to save forum users' bandwidth. I am not sure whether it still applies in 2016 when bandwidth of embedded videos is not an issue. i feel that starting several topics with one video each is like spamming, so I put all of the vids in this post instead. Anyway, these vids were all shot while snorkeling with Olympus TG-4 and natural light in Cebu, Philippines.
  19. Tokina 10-17mm fisheye lens is a very popular lens, especially for underwater photography due to the flexibility it gives the underwater photographer. It is the #1 lens of choice for Canon and Nikon cropped-sensor underwater dSLR shooters. This is a variable aperture lens, and the largest aperture is F3.5 at 10mm focal length, and F4.5 at 17mm focal length. Lens is as new. Comes with box and all caps... Price only 350eur.
  20. Dear Wetpixel community, I am a newbie to the world of underwater photography, I have recently bought an Oly tg-4 with pt056 housing. I have gone on a few snorkelling trips and after reading in several forums decided to shoot all my pics in RAW. As you can probably tell from my choice of camera I have decided to go for a not too price heavy introduction to this world. I would now like to fool around with some post processing, I have tried out the program that comes with the olympus camera (olympus viewer) but I have found it to be quite slow and not particularly good at balancing the colours when compared to what I have been shown by friends such as photoshop. My pictures were shot between surface and 20 meters, without any stobes lights or filters in the med, so I am sure you can imagine just how blue they are . I have done some research online and have found many sources making a case for adobe lightroom. As I understand it this would be very much on the higher end in terms of quality of tools for post-processing. My issue is that being very much a beginner and only managing a few photo trips a year, I am not sure that it would worth it for me to buy such a program. Otherwise, Gimp looked interesting but it seems that it is not compatible with .ORF (olympus raw format). What do you use? Do you know of any program that is more affordable or dare I say open source, while still having a decent range of functions and not being too slow? Also if you have any tips for someone that is new to post-processing, I would be very grateful to hear them! Thanks in advance, Giuliano
  21. I am selling... IKELITE Underwater TTL Housing for Canon EOS 650D Rebel T4i (Kiss X6i) and Canon EOS 700D Rebel T5i (Kiss X7i) DSLR. Housing has about 50 dives, all right 100% Price only 750 EUR. Shiping approximately 50 EUR from CROATIA.
  22.

Looking for £675 each plus shipping (will sell separately). They give a lovely professional diffused bright light and are 4000 lumen dave@divescilly.com / 07884365375
  23. For sale is the Zen 100mm Fisheye Dome Port for Nauticam housings, Tokina 10-17 lens. Excellent condition, no scratches. Part # DP-100-N120T $899 new, asking $750 or best offer. Open to offers. Will load pictures asap. From Bluewater Photo: This is a small 4-inch glass dome port for use with the Tokina 10-17mm or Nikon 10.5mm fisheye lens on Nauticam housings. For close-focus wide angle work, Zen Underwater is turning conventional 'big dome' wisdom on its ear with a new 100mm (4") dome port. Designed specifically for the Nikon DX AF Fisheye-Nikkor 10.5mm f/2.8G ED and the Tokina Fisheye 10-17mm F3.5-4.5 DX zoom, the DP-100 allows the photographer to get in close where a large dome just won't go for stunning close focus wide angle images. As an added bonus, at only 340g (12oz.), the DP-100 fisheye dome port offers welcome relief to the luggage bloat of dive photo travel and the ever increasing expense associated with checking large heavy camera systems. Small and Lightweight Great for close-focus wide angle photography Includes Front Dome Cap Underwater Photos from the Zen 100mm glass dome for the Tokina fisheye The Zen 4-inch glass dome for the Tokina 10-17mm fisheye lens is awesome. Zen makes versions for almost any housing brand, including Ikelite, Sea & Sea, Nauticam, Hugyfot and more. It is difficult to scratch (unlike the regular port), very small for travel, light underwater, very sharp, and it allows me to place my dome in small places where a larger dome would interfere with the subject. I like to get REALLY CLOSE to my close-focus wide-angle subjects, and the ZEN 4-inch dome let's me do that. Lighting the subject is easier than when I use a larger dome, and I like not having to use an extension ring. The only disadvantage is that you can't do over/under shots. That, and the fact that there is no good neoprene cover that will stay on the port. So protect your port! I recommend this setup for both cropped-sensor and full-frame dSLRs - Scott Gietler
  24. Hello, I try to find a Olympus PT-056 housing for Olympus Though TG-3 & TG-4 cameras. Shipping to Germany or Saudi Arabia. Thank you very much.
  25. They only have 60 degrees of coverage, but I am wondering if anyone has purchased a set and used with a gopro or some other camera underwater. It appears they sell gel diffusers as well, so I'm look at them strictly for compactness / convenience / price http://www.bhphotovideo.com/bnh/controller/home?O=&sku=1192935&gclid=CL6Ek8767s0CFUpZhgodMj8Jxg&Q=&ap=y&m=Y&c3api=1876%2C92051677682%2C&is=REG&A=details Any thoughts/comments would be greatly appreciated!
