Hey everyone I'm Shaun. I have only been photographing underwater since May last year, but I'm really enjoying it.

Using the RX100 VA and 2 x Inon S2000 strobes. However, I've just upgraded to Z330's. :)

Long time shutter bug, short time diver. Just trying to learn what I can before plunking down some money on an underwater rig. My current system is Pentax and nobody makes housings so I'll probably have to try something new. I guess no time like the present to try out mirrorless.

Hello everyone.  I've been trying my best at uw photography for about 8 years now whenever I can get the chance to get underwater.  Recently picked up a Panasonic G9/Nauticam housing with the Panasonic 8mm FE, Panasonic 8-18, and Olympus 60mm, using S&S YSD2J.  Before this I was shooting an Oly EPL3.  I just love the m4/3 system.

It's a never ending journey of learning and I love reading all your informative posts, looking at all the amazing pictures being posted and watching the amazing videos of destinations I hope to visit one day!

Thanks for the add Wetpixel.

Hi everyone, I'm Shan, I've been diving for about 25 years and I still think it's one of the best things anyone can possibly do with their time and I wish I could dive every day!
Many years ago I got a Sea & Sea underwater camera with the fixed flash on top, but graduated a few years ago to a Canon 5D Miii and a Nauticam housing. I call her Big Bertha and I love her to absolute bits!
I post pics to Insta (shannonearnshaw_uw) and I'm trying to get better at doing this more often - it just seems to take me so long and I can never decide what #'s to use.
Anyway, looking forward to being part of this community :)

Hi,

My name is Rob Provost and I am an amateur photographer trying to get into underwater photography.  I snorkel & SCUBA.  Recently took 10,000 plus photos on safari in Africa and I'm preparing for a trip to Fiji & Tonga later this year.

Own a Canon T6i with 18-55mm & 70-300mm Canon lenses and Tokina 10-17mm fisheye.

Any suggestions for a good entry level underwater housing and lens dome?

Hello All,

I'm a long time member of semi-related online communities... DP Review, ScubaBoard, etc. but this is my first time focusing seriously on the intersection of cameras and diving.  I've spent a couple years getting my feet wet with GoPros and am hoping to transition into a higher quality video rig this year.  Figured this would be the spot to learn about the way I want to do it.

Thanks, bS :)

Hei there

just wanted to give you all a quick hello from Switzerland.

I dive all year round but prefer the warm water over the cold due to the photography abilities without gloves :)

cheers

Hi from New Zealand.

I’m an avid wildlife photographer but have never ventured underwater (photography wise). We are off to swim with whales in Tonga in September and so thought I’d buy an Olympus tough, housing and backscatter lens (vs underwater housing for my canon gear).

Any other thoughts or suggestions gratefully received.

Jayne

Hi Guys

Just signed up and excited to be part of the community. I probably should of joined along time ago, as I know a few members from past dive trips. 
 

My name is Steve Benjamin and I live and dive in Cape Town, South Africa. Back in 2009 I started company called Animal Ocean which focuses on tourist day trips to snorkel with Cape Fur Seals in Hout Bay. We also run trips to interesting places occasionally and facilitate film shoots. 
 

I spent most of my time freediving and photographing with a Sony A7S II and Nauticam housing. I used to have a Subal with a Nikon D70, but that recently flooded. 

If I was to pick a “bucket list” marine encounter that I have NOT don’t , it’s photographing Sperm Whales. 
 

Nice to meet you all, and if anyone have questions about diving in Cape Town. Don’t hesitate to get in touch. 

You can find me on Instagram @animal_ocean or sealsnoreling.com 

cheers 

Steve

Hello,

I am Rob Fornell and have been into photography for going on 8 years. Mostly Sony above water and GoPro below. I just received a Sea Frogs Salt Line A6XXX  I received the standard port the Macro Port, and the 6 Dome. I will be using a A6500 and already own the 90 MM Macro 2.8 GM and the 10-18 F4. I have several other lenses that are on the list but these are where I am starting. I found this site after looking for information on setting buoyancy before taking on a dive. I will need to be close being that we are leaving for a few dives in the beginning of March and will be in Cozumel. I was surprised at how much valuable information is on this site. I will most likely using renting Kraken 5000s+’s for our first trip being the lighting is a serious cost and I want to make sure I have what I need but not more. We dive twice a year beginning of the year a week and beginning of Sept 2 weeks.

Any examples or pics of where and how you added weight or buoyancy for the Macro Port and the 6" Dome would be greatly appreciated.
