Thanks all for coming ... good times. Don't have time to edit pics so here are some shots right out of the camera.

A couple of samples.

And I finally got a full frame shot of this beast underwater.

Also did a little camera magic to practice for my other hobby.

Even tried the video option on the camera, actually has good results (if you watch in 480p)



Enjoy!

Cheers

Thanks Ronald.

A tip, if you can adjust your exposure compensation on your camera it is best to adjust that. Once done you can still just fire away but the camera itself has been calibrated for an underwater view. These things were built to expose topside and not underwater.

My current setting I use are

-0.7 of a stop for camera exposure
-0.3 of a stop for flash exposure (course this depends on the flash you use) and if not external turn it off.

Perhaps check your camera manual to see if that is an option.

Brian,

I can't stand it. You have such beautiful water for this, clear with an interesting bottom (unlike pools). Plus the fact that you've obviously mastered the camera/video thing. One of these years I'm just going to ask if I can join you so I can cross the bridge, hop on the 401, and motor on up to your annual get-together (or maybe VIA rail).
