Title: Please share your most vivid photographs of underwater creatures
Post by: DavidD on January 28, 2012, 11:01:19 AM
"Take-Off"

A Jelly in an aquarium (not a wild creature).
(When I was a kid we called them Jelly-fish, but I'm slowly getting used to this new term.)

I look forward to your images.

Cheers,
David

Hi,
I shoot for years already quite a lot (thousands) of ornamental fishes, snails, shrimps etc. Here are two examples:

Just about the only shot of an underwater creature I have (also in an aquarium).

I don't think it is a triggerfish...
Facial markings look like a Maori Wrasse (or Humphead wrasse/napoleon wrasse/napoleon maori wrasse - or any combination of these :) )
I can't see a prominent hump and this looks a lot smaller than the typical adult maori wrasse... perhaps a juvenile one?  Or I could be completely wrong and it may be a triggerfish - I haven't looked at fish ID books in a while.

Where did you see the fish? (And very nice photo by the way)

Yep.  That's definitely a juvenile.  They tend to get a bit greener and the bump becomes more prominent as they get older.  I've spent many dives feeding one in the local aquarium.

I find the easiest way to add pictures, is from Flickr, using the share, then selecting the bulletin board code.

Anyone ever use the Canon underwater housing with the Canon G12? Any thoughts on results? I already have the camera and want to experiment a little with some shots but don't want to invest heavily in expensive gear that I'm not going to use a lot. Thanks.
Title: Re: Please share your most vivid photographs of underwater creatures
Post by: michi on April 10, 2012, 07:36:22 AM
I have a G10 with the Canon underwater housing.  The case is very well made, but the G10 is just too slow under water.  The autofocus is average above water, under water it gets real tough to achieve focus.  There is a long learning curve until you figure out how to use the combo.  My biggest complain is just that due to the camera having such a hard time focusing, you miss a lot of the action under water.  However, I do have a few beautiful pictures, but most of them are lucky shots or "scenery" shots.  The G12 may be better in the focussing department, and that would help tremendously.

Confession: this was taken with an Olympus E-PL2, which I use more-or-less exclusively for UW. With this system, the strobes rely on optical slave triggers that are connected to the housing by fibre-optic cables where they transmit the light from the on-board pop-up flash. Of course, when I went diving with a pair of (trained) dolphins, I neglected to raise the flash while setting up, and since the housing doesn't feature a plunger to press the button, it remained folded away, limiting me to available light.

Luckily, I managed to adapt and come away with one of my favourite UW shots, which I probably wouldn't have taken were it not for a stupid error.
