Greetings from the Mosquito Coast, New Hampshire. I am looking to donate some underwater equipment to any non-profit organization, college, uni, etc. The good news: the two Sea&Sea housings, Nikon F5 camera bodies and assoc. sport finders are in mint condition. The Aquatica 4, Nikon F4 and its action finder are in very good condition. There are miscellaneous EO connectors, 2 Ikelite 200s, 2 Ikelite 50s and an assortment of strobe arms. Everything is in excellent working condition.

The bad news: It is all non-digital film equipment. However, I will donate at least 200 rolls of film (Ektachrome 200?); I will verify quantity and film type.

Any suggestions, greatly appreciated, and I will consider  assisting with freight charges. Thanks

Hi everyone!

 

Brett here, new to wetpixel.  Been doing big animal trips filming with just my gopro camera.  Wanting better stills, we invested in a couple Sony cameras (me and the wife) and will be looking on building/expanding from there.  Live in California, and fortunately Backscatter is just a 45 min drive away.  Looking forward to reading/posting/buying on this site!

Hello everyone,

 

Sebastien here, I like both photography and scuba diving (south of France) and I’d like to try to do both at the same time! I’m still looking what could be the best gear to begin. Already have a Olympus Pen E-PL7 camera but no housing or anything else!

Hi,

My name is Joe. I'm a marine biologist currently doing a PhD in Hong Kong. I'm looking to upgrade from my Sony Rx100 VA to a DSLR in order to take better quality images of smaller fishes for my research. Have joined WP to ask for some advice on which camera might be best for me.

Hello everyone,

I'm new into underwater photography, and I'm from north CA. I'm getting my second camera and housing setup: I was using a compact camera with fantasea housing without vaccum, and it flooded:(

I join wetpixel to learn from these amazing discussions; the classfield is also a nice forum!

Hey everyone!

I have been a silent member of Wetpixel since 2009, when I started taking pictures, in Tanzania, where I used to live. I have published books in Tanzania as well as in Mozambique, the country I was most recently. I now live in Tunisia and I am moving to Brazil in two weeks. PLEASE ANY BRAZILIAN PHOTOGRAPHER, do contact me. I will be based in Brasilia, but I am ready to fly anywhere to take good pics. www.crudeli.it is my instagram feed. 

Looking for photo buddies, who can become friends!

Great to be in touch.

Hello all, 

After many years of dreaming about it I've finally gotten into underwater photography - still very new at it as I've only taken my set up into the water 4x but looking forward to becoming proficient.  I'm mostly interested in freshwater biodiversity and looking forward to documenting it, for now in California where I'm based (bay area) but hopefully more widely in the near future. I'm a wildlife biologist by training and profession and have long been photographing biodiversity topside, if at all interested you can check my work out on instagram https://www.instagram.com/antonsrkn/ or my website AntonSorokin.com

I'm happy to be a member here and looking forward to learning.

Hi everybody from Hong Kong,

I have discovered this forum a few weeks ago, even I used to watch your videos in YouTube. I have been shooting with a Sony RX100 system for a couple of years and now  moving to a full frame Sony... looking forward to getting help from the experts in this forum.

I am a macro lover, as you can see from the pictures in macro lover, as you can see from the pictures in my blog :dance:

Cheers!

Hi all-  I've restarted my diving habit and with that restart have upgraded from an old Sony point and shoot to an Olympus Pen setup. While I wait for our upcoming trip to Roatan in December (and cross my fingers that it doesn't get scuttled due to Covid), I've been reading all the UW photography books and researching!

Hi Everyone!

I recently got scuba certified in Cabo in mid-August and really enjoyed it! I've already into photography (cityscapes and landscapes) and am looking into getting into UW photography. I was able to borrow a friend's GoPro during the first few dives, but looking into getting something more serious.

 

Discovered this forum via Fred Miranda and am finding it very helpful as I do research into what equipment to buy.

 

Thanks everyone for sharing their info so far! Hope to get good enough to return the favor :)

Hi everyone.

My name is Russ and I live in Cape Town, South Africa. My wife Barbara and I have been diving and filming for the past 20 years or so and are in our late,  .... late 50's :)

We are passionate about ocean conservation and spend most of our time traveling and filming in underwater and topside environments, as we build our 6K and 4K film stock library.

We currently have over 900 dives each,  800+ of which, were made with our current filming gear, which consists of a 4K Blackmagic Production Camera and 6K RED Dragon and a number of GoPro's. We have been fortunate enough to film in many amazing ocean and topside environments in South Africa, Mozambique, Botswana, Maldives, Madagascar, Indonesia, Papua New Guinea, New Zealand, USA, Equador, Costa Rica, Dominica, Truk Lagoon(Chuuk), Red Sea, Mauritius, Seychelles and more.

Our underwater filming gear consists of Nauticam Housings, Dive and See 7" monitors, Keldan lights, plenty of other odds and ends,... and a whole lot of overweight issues at the airports:lol:

We have found many answers on this WetPixel forum in the past and are happy to start sharing our knowledge and hopefully assist in some way. We also have one BIG question to put to the forum, once our membership has reached that point.

 

Can't wait to chat

Russ

Hi Wetpixel,

My name is Aaron and Im not new to diving or photography...or underwater photography.  I had a sealife yellow film camera when i was 12 and am just getting back into UW photography.  I had to take a 12 year hiatus due to heart arrhythmia issues that have been fixed recently. YAY!  I bought a Fantasea housing for my a6400 and am in the process of building my kit.  Im happy to be here!

Hi everyone.

My name is Kevin Peyrusse and I live in Marseille, South of France.

Always passionate about the complexity and richness of marine ecosystems, I first studied marine biology and worked on coral fish larvae in Polynesia, before becoming, over the years, an underwater cinematographer and a wildlife film director.

I am convinced that the beauty revealed by the images attracts the eye, arouses curiosity and helps to better understand, becoming a very effective tool for science communication and raising awareness of the dire straits of the natural world.

I started to film 8 years ago and we did an independent movie Eqalusuaq – On the trail of the Hidden Predators, followed the adventure in Alaska of two free divers and photographers looking for salmon sharks. After this great first experience I had the pleasure to work for international documentary channels (Arte, National Geographic, BBC) and some prestigious recent diving expeditions, from the cool waters of the Arctic to incredibly biodiverse tropical waters (Under The PoleGombessa).

I am constantly looking for efficient and effective tools in order to improve the quality and originality of the shots. I started freedive when I was a child but but now I am using a rebreather each time I can approach animals without bubbles and be able to be really close to them.

During these years, I tried many competing housing brands, but since the beginning, it is Nauticam with whom I equipped all my personal cameras. I am filming with a RED Dragon, a Blackmagic Pocket 6K and an A7Siii. Nauticam remains the only one to offer the possibility of using different brands of video and photo cameras with the same set of domes and that's an essential point for me during a remote expedition.

Here is a quick video summary: https://vimeo.com/406574387

I learned a lot on this forum and with great underwater photographers advises, now I would like to be more active, share informations and interesting tips with community, mainly about material and techniques.

Can wait to tchat with you,

Kévin
