Hello,

I'm from NJ and own a dive shop here. I have been shooting a g10 but recently upgraded to a 5d mark2. I have been bouncing around this site for a while now and figured I'd join in the dialog. Happy to e here.

Hi, my name is Michael, and although I have been taking snapshots underwater for several years, I have now purchased a more sophistacated setup, as I am diving again after a 26+ year rest! All my previous experience was during my snorkelling years, but last year I passed my SCUBA medical for the first time since I had to give up diving!

Hi guys/gals a quick hello to introduce myself. I have been visiting this site for a while and found it quite interesting. I live just Sth of Byron Bay and mostly dive my local site Julian Rocks with Giac and the crew from Sundive. I have only been shooting a couple of years and have recently upgraded from a G9/ Ikelite set up to a Nikon D7000, Tok. 10-17 with 8" dome and a Nikon 60 Macro. Am enjoying having a lot more stuff to fiddle with but at the same time finding it a bit more challenging !!! I have a couple of issues with the 10-17 and D7000 that I will post later in a different part of the forum as I need to do this post first before I can post !

Happy shooting,

Cheers, John

hi !

 

I've just registered her and would like to write "hallo" from Gdynia, Poland.

I'm not a diver but love to snorkel and I hope to find some useful tips here regarding taking pictures (and making movies) of underwater creatures...

 

Best regards, Bartek

Hi All -

 

Just joined the forum - But its not for a happy reason I'm afraid - I loved underwater photography and even had a few whale shark shots published in SHARKDIVER MAGAZINE, but lately work and life stuff has been overwhelming - SO I really signed up to try and list my Ikelite D50 rig and strobe.

 

Its been a fun run but time to pass this stuff on to someone who will give it more use that I can ;) I have browsed the forums silently for a while and have enjoyed the site, - - which I can still do even though I wont be shooting anymore!

Hello. John from Seattle. Wife said I need to sell old gear before I can buy new. Buddy told me listing it here was better than anywhere else.

 

Heading to Cabo in a few days, hope to get a few pixels wet.

Hi,

 

My name is Jens and I just signed up here because many told me this is a good way to advertise some used gear that I'd like to sell (a complete FIX G10 setup). I want to sell that because I finally decided to get an Nauticam 7D housing. Alas, before I can post I need to reply to a thread first, and that's what I do now :D

 

This link is broken: We recommend introducing yourself as a reply to this post. (Any admin out there can look into this? Cheers!)

 

Anyway, I've been diving for more than 11 years now, and I'm currently PADI MSDT certified. Got CMAS certified in mid December in Germany and we actually had to poke holes into a thin layer of ice. Then I moved to Australia for a couple of years before I ended up in Seattle about seven years ago; that's where I still live and dive most of the time. Although I do travel _a_lot_ and dive all over the world. We've got a small group of people here, all obsessed with photography, and we spend heaps of (long) weekends diving all over Vancouver Island or the Northern Puget Sound.

 

Keep smiling :)

Jens

Greetings from the Emerald Seas of British Columbia.

 

After a long and loving relationship with my Oly 5050 and Oly PT-015 housing, I've taken the plunge and decided it is time to introduce my Nikon D90 to a few of the local critters. I'm starting from scratch with DSLRs underwater, but have jumped in with both feet and have ordered an Ike housing, 2x Ike DS-51 strobes, the 8" dome and the right port to match the 16-85mm lens that will be behind the dome.

 

I really enjoy topside DSLR photography, so I'm hoping to combine a couple of my passions. Wish me luck.

 

I'm off to Roatan (CoCo View) for a week, so I'll have lots of opportunity to practice with the new gear in shallow clear water. Hopefully one or two pictures are worthy of posting here. Fortunately there's a lot of similarity between using the 5050 on manual and a DSLR on manual (in terms of concepts and desired outcomes), so the photography learning curve isn't too steep. The new gear curve however, that's another story.

 

Cheers,

Craig.

Hi There,

 

Quick introduction: I'm Bert Stephani from Belgium: father of 3, occasional diver and professional photographer (on land). For the last couple of months I have been experimenting a bit with the combination of two of my passions: water and photography. I hope to learn a lot and get to know some nice people here.

I'm new to forums and new to Wetpixel. I've been diving and taking underwater photos for 6 years now with my Olympus C-770UZ and a single Ikelite DS-51 strobe. I'm looking to upgrade to one of the Olympus PEN models and also need to replace my flooded strobe. So, I'm basically looking at buying a whole new rig and want some advice before spending any money.

Hello all,

 

Just got my diving certification and am eager to start taking pics. I've got pics on borrowed cameras from the Maldives, Mauritius, and Seychelles, and hopefully, will be adding more destinations to that list in the near future. Especially interested in wrecks!
