  1. I get asked this question very often, so here goes, here is my Beginner and Intermediate gear advice. I've been shooting as a pro underwater photographer and videographer for a few years now so hope this helps! Happy shooting! 🤟
  2. I've always been a stills shooter underwater, but when I won a video light in a photo competition recently I thought what the heck, I'd make an attempt at shooting some video for a change. First thing I notice when I get the footage on my computer screen is that I seem to have some stuck pixels, particularly a decent-sized red spot near the middle of the frame. I guess these have always been mapped out with my images in Lightroom, so I never really knew they were there. Help! What can I do? It's awful, and completely ruins the video. I am shooting with a Canon 5D Mark II. It's a camera I've had for years (well out of warranty). Thank you Wetpixelites!
  3. I have an Inon Z240 strobe that has stopped firing. It seems to charge up okay, the focus light works, but I'm unable to get it to fire, either optically or electrically. I'm not sure what burnt out flash tubes look like, but visually they look fine to me. No obvious sign anywhere of water getting in. What do you reckon is wrong with it?
  4. 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
  5. Hi all,I am new to underwater slr photography. I have bought a 5d seacam housing, 2 x nikonos strobes, one macro port and a super dome. I want one box for all to transport it around and one for the dive boat. Can anyone recommend a hard protective case that will fit it all in? And can anyone recommend a boat container that I can stow it in whilst on board. Thank you!!
  6. Hello from Belgium, I've been a diver for almost 20 years. Now I would like to combine my diving with my other passion, taking photo's. I have a underwatercompact camera (sony cybershot with se&sea ys-26) , but for 6 years I've been using nikon D90 with a collection of lenses above water. I would like to buy a decent slr housing for my D90 and use my nikon 60mm 2.8D macro and tokina 11-16mm 2.8. In Belgian diving magazine's there are ad's for hugyfot housings. Any advice on them? Experiences, pro / contra's? thanks for the help
