Hi, I'm Nancy from New York. I have been diving on/off for about 15yrs. I just picked up UW photography about 3yrs ago. I have an Olympus OMD EM-5II with Nauticam housing/12-50mm zoom lens/WWL-1/Sea&Sea YS-D2 strobe. Most of my photography has been in the Caribbean but I would love to branch out as I am still learning how to achieve the potential of my system, which is also what brought me to this website. A whale shark encounter is high on my bucket list.

Hi,
i'm a Belgian freediving instructor currently working & training in the Philippines. I shoot under water photos on one breath.
For now, still with GoPro Hero 4 Silver. Editing with Davinci Resolve 14 and Lightroom.

I am especially interested in color correcting for UNDER WATER gopro protune settings:
white balance: native
color: flat
iso limit: 800 (or 400?)
sharpness: low
ev compensation: -1.0

Thanks!
PS. i will also look for a more professional camera, so any tips on that are welcome.

Greetings. I'm an avid UW photographer who is finally taking the step from compact camera to mirrorless m4/3 UW gear. It'll be a learning curve, so here I am looking to take it all in and ask questions!

My name is Tom Hundley and I am an underwater photographer. I love all types of photography but mostly do Cave Photography. I am trained in OW to Divemaster and in technical Full Cave Advanced Trimix. I don't have a ton of experience and am always willing to learn. Started with a Olympus 5050 with Ikelte case I moved to a D200 in an Ikelite Housing with an 8 inch dome with a Tokina 10-17. I have moved to a new to me Nikon D7000 with a Aquatica housing with a flat port. The camera was used a set sound block and has a flat port that was used on set. I need to get a dome port for it and a port that can work with the Tokina 10-17.

Hi I'm Bob from Winnipeg, nice to find this community. I have been using an Olympus omd 5 mark 11 with the ep pt13 housing. I know very little about either and find info from Olympus is like pulling hen's teeth. Happy diving all!

Hello, I am Amy from San Diego, CA. I am relatively new to formal photography so I am working on learning all that I can. I have been doing all of my underwater work with a GoPro 4 Silver edition. The reef in La Jolla preserve is one of my favorite places and I love to swim and dive as often as possible. I'm also on Scubaboard forum and a few others.

 

I am currently looking for a system that can be more easily taken with me backpacking, hiking, and underwater. Because of this, I am looking to stick with a mirrorless system and am leaning towards M4/3 to keep size/weight of camera lenses down. Would prefer something that is weather sealed and has IBIS. Seriously considering Oly OM-D E-M5 II. If money (and weight) weren't an issue, I also like the Sony A6500. Anyway, I'm still researching what will be a good investment and leave me with plenty of years to use it as I grow in my skills so I'm open to suggestions :).

Hi Bob! I'm actually considering the EM5 II as well. I'm interested to hear your feedback on both the camera and the housing. If I do go with this model of camera I think I would like to save for the Nauticam but am tempted by the great package deal you can get for the oly housing.

Hi! My name is Jesse Andrewartha. I'm based in Vancouver, Canada and my work concentrates on film. I have a 35mm Arriflex motion picture film camera and PACE Technologies housing and a Hugyfot hasselblad housing for SWC with the Rebikoff port. Current projects are keeping me out of the water for the foreseeable future but I'm looking forward to getting wet in 2019!
