Take a look here: http://www.uwphotographyguide.com/canon-s90-g11-underwater-settingsThat is mostly what I did with the G15.

 

I set up C1 for macro (including the lens zoom that gave the best magnification with some reasonable working distance, 13 cm or so as I recall). I setup up C2 for action wide-angle. 1/125s, fast f/stop, widest zoom setting, and auto-ISO

 

Do you have an external strobe? That would definitely change what you use for Macro.

I just returned from Marsa Alam (Red Sea, Egypt) and had my first session with my Canon G16 in the Fantasea housing, wide angle lens and 2 x INON D2000 strobes.

 

My standard setting was:

ISO 80

f/5.6

1/125

 

During the dive I mostly adjust the aperture.

I like the background with the shutterspeed at 1/125.

In a cave you will need to increase the ISO.

 

I am new at UW photography and made around 20 dives with a camera so far.

But I happy with the results so far.

I have 2 INON strobes (1x S2000 and 1x D2000) which I used at maximum output.

 

White balance is on automatic and just very small adjustments in Photoshop are needed afterwards.

(For each picture I increased the color red as I did not have a red filter)
