Been reading the forum for a little while because I have been looking into getting a camera. Thinking about getting the Sony A6300 with the meikon housing and wet dome port... If anybody has any input on this setup please let me know.

Hello All,

 

I have been taking underwater video and photos for the past several years. Cameras have included a Sony HC-3 in a Light & Motion housing, a Nikon P7000 in a Fantasea housing and currently an E-M5 Mark II in an Olympus housing. Stan Scubaman on YouTube and Instagram. The discussion and input on the forum has been invaluable.

I got certified to dive when I was 12 but only dove occasionally on family vacations in tropical water while growing up. About 2 years ago, I moved to the San Francisco Bay Area have been fortunate to dive far more frequently, I have since gotten really into cold water diving and UW photography. After hunting for Nudibraches in Monterey for a year with my old Canon Powershot SD700 and Ikelite housing it was time to upgrade. I now have a Canon G7X in Nauticam housing and recently got a Dyron SWAL13. I have had fun making the most of my natural light photos but I am excited to get a strobe or two soon. Looking forward to reading more of the Wetpixel forums and hopefully will find some new (to me) gear in the classifieds!

Hello,

I'm from France and I've been diving for about 1 year and a half.

I dive in lakes as I'm quite far from any sea, for training essentially (I'm level 2 CMAS) and I had a few opportunities to dive in the Mediterranean sea where I could see a lot of fishes and other animals.
As I like photography (I am an happy owner of Canon 6D), I'd like now get a camera to take with me when diving and capture what I see and share it with my family.

And I am here to exchange with you on this topic, new to me.

Ouais

Hi All,

 

My name is Christina Barringer. I am an Underwater Photographer, PADI Divemaster, Marine Biologist by education and SLPA in South Florida. Beautiful South Florida is currently experiencing the effects of Hurricane Matthew. I have power for now so I am taking the time to introduce myself.

 

I love to travel. I think the best thing in the world is to see as much of it as you can. While studying marine biology I studied abroad in Mexico, Australia, Belize and interned in South Africa researching Great White Sharks. I love research but have always enjoyed underwater photography. I started out snorkeling as a child with a disposable camera.

 

I am currently selling my Canon 100D & Ikelite setup. I have upgraded to the full frame Canon 6D and Nauticam housing, Zen 230 mm glass dome with Canon 16-35mm or Tokina 10-17. Soon I'll pick up a 100mm and the flat port. I shoot with 2 Sea & Sea YS110A strobes with Ultralight arms and clamps.

 

I just came back from exploring Trinidad and Tobago. My next adventure is next month to the Lofoten Islands of Norway to dive with Orcas!

 

I'm excited to announce that I print on metal, iPhone and Galaxy cell phone cases and have a 2017 calendar out now: www.cbseaphotography.com

Hi there everyone,

My name is Kieran and I am a PADI Divemaster Marine Biologist doing postgraduate studies in Aberdeen Scotland. I have used a range of different underwater cameras (mostly for my university research dive team) and recently owned an old canon 450D setup which I quickly passed on due to the size of the gear. In christmas I am going on my honeymoon to Mexico and I am looking to put together a nice mirrorless setup to take in my hand luggage. I joined this forum to share ideas, pictures and to get some experienced advice on my new gear.

 

I hope to engage in many interesting underwater camera topics!

Hello All,

I'm new here but have been diving since 1989. I've just recently (in the last 5 years) become a bit obsessed with underwater photography. Obsession can be a good thing, right? Question: I am using only one strobe now and am thinking of adding another but wonder if it's worth the money. I only take 1-2 dive trips per year, Thanks!
