Hello,

 

According to glowing reports about this forum, I'm hoping to learn a great deal from you guys. And I can use it as a 75 year old newbie.

 

Cheers,

Hello everyone,

I am Miguel and I have been using a Sony nex 7 with Inon strobes for the last 4 years. I work in Indonesia so I am lucky to be able to use my UW camera often but I still have a lot to learn and the forums are usually quite helpful. I have recently invested in a Nikon 7500 and can't wait to receive the housing and start testing it.

Hi All,

 

I'm Carolyn and I live in Kansas. I know --- not a great place for someone that loves SCUBA diving. I've been diving for 30 years, but unfortunately, I only get to take 1 and if i'm lucky 2 trips per year; so it was a hard decision to pay the big bucks for the underwater gear. I started with a SeaLife camera, but it drove me crazy with not being able to shoot RAW and the marked shutter lag. I finally bought the housing for my good topside camera a few years ago and I have loved underwater photography. I shoot with a Nikon D800 in Nauticam housing and Sea & Sea YS-D2 strobes. I recently upgraded my topside camera to the Nikon D850 and I am thinking of selling my Nauticam housing NA-D800.

Good Morning from Sunny Southern CA. I have been diving since 1993 (Rescue cert) with approx. 3,000 dives. I am an underwater photographer. I currently shoot the Canon 5DMK3 (Sea and Sea housing) behind a Zen dome with 2 Sea and Sea YS250s stobes. I am considering switching to the Canon 5DSR. Does anyone have any feedback on the 5DSR for underwater photography? Does the 5DSR focus well in low-light?

Hi,

I live in the Central Coast of California (near San Luis Obispo). If anyone knows of an underwater photographic society in this area, please let me know! The ones in Los Angeles, Orange County, San Diego, and Northern California are just too far away for me to attend their meetings and events.

Thanks,

Laurie

New to the site, and just stopping in to say hello.. looks like I've got a lot of reading to do.

First off, I'm not new to photography or scuba diving.. but the two of them combined - yes - other than a gopro and no strobes or lights. Mind you, I'm doing a scuba re-cert as it was early 2000's when I last did any significant amount of diving (and for some reason, telling people I have an IDEA AOW C-Card confuses them. Is IDEA not very recognized any more? Plus a re-cert with the g/f is the only way to get her diving... win-win at bit of a cost, but that's ok.

Anyway, for cameras, I have a Nikon D750 and Sony a6500 - but am thinking the Sealife DC2000 package would be a good u/w starter rig - that way I've got 'less gear' to fumble with while diving for the first bit - looks like it is a fairly capable system. I had having another camera, but at the same time, then I don't have to worry about flooding a housing for either of my 'good' cameras while learning to juggle the gear. Happy to hear your thoughts, but off to dig through the forums for some research!

Hello, Margaret Soraya from the highlands of Scotland here. I've been a pro photographer for 14 years and I live for anything to do with water. Underwater photography is new to me so just learning and needing to buy kit. I have a long term project planned involving photographing landscapes on the Outer Hebrides through and from their very clear waters.

Hi,

I’m Neil from Brisbane Australia and I thought I would finally introduce myself as I have been lurking here for many months.
I have been diving since 2002. I started underwater photography soon after starting with a disposable underwater film camera (all photos were complete rubbish) before progressing to my first compact digital camera, the Olympus C-5050Z.
Nowadays, I dive on rebreather with a Canon 7Dmark ii in an Nauticam housing with Retra strobes as equipment of choice.
I’m still making terrible lighting errors with strobes but I’m hoping to improve and perhaps make some more creative shots over the coming months.
Neil
