Hi, I am a diver based in Barcelona, Spain, and I cannot go under water without my camera! 
I am still satisfied with my Canon Powershot S95, and also still learning to improvoe the quality of my pics.
Glad to have found this place!

The S95 and that series is very good and compact. Just add strobes!

I'm a Tampa-based photographer and started shooting underwater almost two years ago now. I've read a bunch of information on this forum, particularly when starting, and finally decided to join it.

Hi, I'm Kara!

I am not new to diving or photography, but I recently heard about this forum. I have some gear I would like to sell and can't seem to find a place that doesn't have a lot of scammers. I'll be interested to see what other topics may peak my interest.

Good morning all 

I live and dive in the British Virgin Islands so very lucky! I have just completed my Rescue Diver course and might do my Divemaster as an end of year goal!

Looking forward to receiving hints and tips!

Living in San Francisco - just trying to get into UW photography a bit. Have some trips coming up and live relatively close to some good diving spots - so I figured I should probably get into this hobby a bit more seriously.

Hi there,

I've started diving seriously only last summer, although I've been interested in diving for a long time - I got my first certification in 2005, but only had 10 dives until last year, since I've had another 50 open water dives and I've been passionate about photography all my life with some limited experience in stock photo.

A couple of months ago I've bought a used Easydive Leo Wi (with a single S&S YS-60) for my Sony A6500. Now I'm reading everything that I can find about UWP as I'm figuring that I need to forget almost everything that I know about photography :-). I am also looking to properly setup my system (ports, domes, wet lenses and strobes).

Hello,

I am from the Neherlands and used uw-compact camera's for many years, here, in other European countries and in tropical waters. A year ago I updated from an Olympus PEN EPL7 to an OMD Mark 5 iii.  As waters are dark here, I mostly shoot macro. In the coming years I want to improve my wide angle photography with my WWL-1 lens. Perhaps I should upgrade my flashes as well, currently I have two Sea&Sea ys-01 's ..

Hello. Excited to join the Wetpixel community.  I am relatively new to UW photography.  Thus far my experience has been limited to a TG5 compact camera and gopro. I also own a Canon 5d Mark IV, which I had only used topside and for which I recently purchased a Nauticam housing. I am excited to learn more and take my 5d Mark IV underwater.

Hi, I'm Willie and I'm from the Shetland Islands (UK).

Currently I'm shooting a Sony A6500 in a Salted line housing, with a couple of Sea & Sea YS-01 strobes. Hopefully upgrading to a Nauticam housing soon :rolleyes:.

Hi, Glenn here, located up in Maine.  Long time stalker of the forums, and just now getting active.  I have been diving for the last 30+ years (PADI Dive Master).  I was a working ‘land’ based photographer for the last 25 years.  Two years ago, i finally had the chance to pursue my dream of shooting underwater. I acquired a Olympus camera and Nauticam housing and got some great dives in with that setup but absolutely hated the Olympus.  On land I primarily shoot Leica and Nikon and just could not make the adjustment.  I sold that kit after 2 weeks in Bonaire and then COVID hit.  Now, with 2021/2022 dive trips booked, I am trying to decide if I should go with a Z7ii setup or jump to Sony..... Any feedback or thoughts would be welcome.  My primary interest underwater is macro work.

 

Cheers, love this community!!

Hey Glenn - and welcome.

Maybe better if you start a new post with the question otherwise it'll get lost in the Introductions. But, quick response: FF sensors underwater have their own issues to contend with. Nikon DX (D500) is brilliant u/w. Not sure the Z6/Z7 series have yet cracked the AF for u/w use.

Hello All, I'm back, I guess it has been so long I am required to post a intro:-) No worries.

OK, I have resided on Guam for almost 30 years and currently work for a large dive operation on Guam . I started shooting using a Nikonos 2 and never looked back. I currently shoot with a couple Nikons D3s (X/S) as well as D700s in Aquatica Housings. My passion is Macro and extreme macro, however I have a fair amount of experience with Humpbacks and enjoyed a spectacular encounter with some Sperm whales off the coast of Guam back in 2001.

I look forward to getting back to what I enjoy most.

Cheers

Chris

Hi everyone!

Just joined this forum, been diving for 10 years but only got interested in photography over the last 4 years. 

Shooting with A6500, just sold my old meikon housing and YS-01s, looking to upgrade to Z330s and a salted line :)
