Hi,

 

My name is Craig. I have been enjoying snapping away with a good quality Nikon AW 130 compact camera. Had great fun and got some good shots considering the limited ability of both the camera and the person holding it!

 

I have just invested in the Olympus OM D E M1 MII and am eagerly awaiting the delivery of a Nauticam housing and Inon Z240 stobe. I hope to get in the ater for the first time mid February.

 

I came across Wetpixel by complete accident but in the few minutes I have had to click around it is obvious that this forum is the font of knowledge. I look forward to spending some time reading through the posts,

Hi, Im Rodrigo P. from Mexico. Just recently got certified as Advanced Open Water and specialties in Underwater Photo, Full Face Mask and Nitrox. I am a very big fan of photography so it was a great way to combine diving and photo.

 

I purchased a "beginners kit" for UW photo: Sony RX100 V, Sony Underwater casing and Sea & Sea YS03 Strobe. Unfortunately, due to my inexperience with the camera, on the first dive and after taking only around 7 pictures, I LOST my camera (brand new) at 30 feet depth. Don't ask me what happened but it seems I let go of the camera while checking my air and the hand strap wasn´t tight so I didn't feel it drift away.

 

Anyways, after 1600 dlls. down the drain, I am now buying a new setup and will place a lanyard on the camera and 3M visible reflective tape (in case it floats away again).

Welcome aboard, Rodrigo. What a horrible start to your underwater photography life! Really sorry to read about that. Good luck with Setup 2.0!

Hi, Joe from down under signing on.

Long time photographer, novice diver.

Wanna get my gear wet and photograph some loggerheads in their aqueous environment. Love turtles!

 

Preowned gear

Sony a6000

Kit lens (hate it)

Samyang 12mm f/2 (great landscape and astro lens)

Sigma 19mm f2.8 (ok lens)

Sigma 30mm f2.8 (good normal lens, if you don't need bokeh)

 

Looking forward to this.

Hi guys, I'm Nik Fizri and I'm a fellow scuba diver as well as a PADI Instructor based in Perhentian Island, Malaysia. Before I joined scuba diving years ago, I worked as a photographer too and when I started diving, I really wanted to learn more about underwater photo and videography. So I really hope that I can learn more about underwater with you guys. Cheers :notworthy:

Hi my name is Lizzy, I'm from Batley, West Yorkshire, UK.

 

I've been diving for about 8 years but have really taken to UWP, I've recently uograded from my simple little Fuji to a second-hand Olympis Pen EPL3.

 

I mainly dive in the UK, in quarries, Scotland and the west and south western coats.

 

I've been using a simple setup for quite a while and now I've advanced onto a better camera.

 

Looking forward to sharing and receiving lots of useful advice from around the globe

Xx

Hi Morten here :-)

 

I have been a member since 2011, but apparently I haven't made any new topic before - lazy that is :-) Now I will make a new topic, selling some used UW-photo equipment, so I need to make a short reply here.

 

Anyway - just upgraded from D300 to D500, and looking forward to photograph whales and other bigger things :-). Living in Denmark I think I will start with some ghost-shrimps :)

 

All the best to Wetpixel and it's members!

 

BR Morten

a lanyard is a good choice to protect your investment. Very few, if any camera set ups float

Greetings!

I'm Richard (sunnyboy on various scuba forums) from Vancouver Island, B.C. Canada.

 

Luckily I get to dive year-round now, and take my camera on all my dives. The current system is a Canon G16 in Ikelite TTL housing with a DS51 strobe and a Sola 1200 as video/focus light. Looking at DLSR, but the price on the housings and ports is... Ouch!
