Alright, I think this is about due. Lots of people I believe bring their G series camera underwater, would like to discuss, learn and appreciate each other's work on this amazing camera, so I'm starting this thread so that these images stay in this place instead of various other threads in different sections.

I start with the following image of a moray taken in Kepalai Resort in Sipadan last year.

That's a nice shot. I have several questions...

What underwater housing did you use?
How expensive is that housing?
How deep can it go?
How easy is it to use underwater?

Very nice photo!

Thanks Tiberius47!

That's only with the Canon OEM housing which when properly cared for should last for years.
RRP for the OEM housing is about $350 but if you shop around online should be able to get it for about $240 delivered.
The housing is rated to 40m.
I find it easy to use, the only difference with the more expensive housing is that you would have to use the shortcut button together with the up/down button to change shutter speed/aperture when on manual mode.

I got my case (canon OEM) for probably a different use than the standard. I use it when I'm fly fishing (although I am also a certified diver and would use it there as well).

In the interest of not reposting, I have a thread with a few images here: http://photography-on-the.net/forum/showpost.php?p=12420130&postcount=1

All my diving images with my G12 can be found on my flickr page.

I have the Ikelite housing which is unfortunately more expensive and bulkier than the Canon one, however it does allow for access to ALL functions on the camera and is rated a little deeper than the Canon.

btw.....I am SO jealous of both of the turtle shots above, very awesome!

These were shot in Jan at my favorite vacation destination, Cozumel, and they are from a G9 in the Canon housing coupled with 2 older Sea & Sea strobes that only fire at full power, so I must shoot in manual & be ready for setting changes, but thanks to old eyes I can't really judge much more than the exposure when shooting. Shot in RAW & processed in CS4, which really brought them to life primarily by using the white balance sampler tool.

The OEM housing doesn't allow for the onboard flash, correct? Can you attach a strobe to it at all, or do you need to get something like the Ikelite housing?

cyberon
21st of June 2011 (Tue), 09:52
Yes, I have a strobe with my OEM housing. It just uses fibre optics for strobe activation and TTL flash.

I think fibre optics is a better way to go, even for aluminium housing instead of a bulkhead. Less chance of another source of potential leak!

Nice DIY work cicopo, for those who are not so confident in DIY, this is the solution I use.

http://a5.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-ash4/259995_10150247240022485_759052484_7391291_4724764 _n.jpg

I've used a 10bar connector and change the connection to the Inon strobe from the slip in type that was supplied with a proper Inon connector. This uses the 3M double sided velcro to attach to the OEM housing. It has a very strong bond as long as you clean the housing where you want to stick the velcro to with some methylated spirit.

The front of my housing also have an adapter for the Inon close up lens. This works very well as you can swing it away when not is use compared to other methods which requires you to unscrew the lens and keep them in a holder.

To take good underwater images, you will find that the camera's underwater mode is often not good enough. You will most probably move to manual mode eventually but at the very least, most people will find Av mode acceptable for most situations.

That depends on the humidity, temperature and how/where you place your camera before closing the housing. You can use desiccant within the housing if this is an issue but be careful when you close your housing to ensure that any part of the desiccant does not come between the 'O' rings. Also try not to change batteries between dives and only do so back in your room/cabin.

At the very minium you should use Av or Tv mode but full manual is best as it gives you far greater flexibility. I also shot in RAW format.

I was wearing full lycra suit under my 3mm suit. Had to keep the weight down as we are flying budget airlines. This combination is bearable. I do dive Perth waters in summer at 22 degrees C using 3mm suit though but can be cold towards the end of a 1 hour dive.

Total my dive gear + UW photography equipment is 42kg. Usually, budget airlines as well as any airlines give extra 10-15kg overweight for dive gear / equipment on top of maximum weight.

Here are a few shots from the Turks & Caicos this past February. I used P mode with underwater mode selected along with the flash adjusted to about 50%. This was done with the camera and the OEM housing alone. I located the following info recently on the web for the G12, S90-95. Canon S90/ S95, Canon G11/ G12 settings for Macro.

•Manual mode, F5.6, 1/500th, ISO 100
•Zoom in half-way
•Macro mode, auto white balance, flash on forced flash mode
•Turn internal flash to it's lowest power setting
•Strobe on manual power; adjust strobe power as needed
•These cameras also have a great focus check feature


When using a diopter like the Dyron 67mm macro lens
•Zoom all the way in
•Shoot at F8 for maximum depth of field
•Keep macro mode on
•Use a good focus light to help the camera focus

I can't speak for the older G series but I own a G12 and Canon UW housing and have taken both diving. Firstly I want to say for UW the G12 is not the best, I would choose the s95 if I only wanted a point and shoot for UW.

Secondly Im a strong believer in external strobes for UW. I'm a big fan of the Inon s2000 strobes. Built in flash is ok UW. It is possible to shoot UW with out flash but this requires you to manually sett WB against a reference. I usually take a dive slate with me for this.

I lot of the newer P&S cameras are coming with wider and wider lenses. This is making is harder for people like Inon to make wide angle and macro lenses.

On the conversation of housings, I think Canon make very very good housings. Unless you want to go deeper than 40M (which i dont think many people do, the fish and coral are in the first 12M) then a 4rd party housing is not needed. They are often 3-4 time the price. Having said that I own the Nauticam for my G12 as well for when I find myself at 60M taking pics of wrecks.

The S series has the advantage over the G series for wide angle uw shots. The G series has 2 custom settings which is beneficial compared to the one in the S series.

I can't speak for the older G series but I own a G12 and Canon UW housing and have taken both diving. Firstly I want to say for UW the G12 is not the best, I would choose the s95 if I only wanted a point and shoot for UW.

I tend to disagree - I have the G12 in a Recsea housing with twin YS110 Alpha strobes and think that it is a great camera for underwater photography.

Here are some examples:

Ron,

Thanks for that. I have just ordered a new x3 M67 Macro wet lens from Jeff Mullins and hopefully it will be here soon. He also has a x6 which I am going to try next year when I go to Bali.

Also I am saving up for one of the wide angle ports - possibly the 12mm - also for the same trip.

Yeah it's a Western Blue Devil fish - when I took that photo I had to use a torch to hightlight it as my strobes had just died :o:oops::o - but it didn't turn out to bad.

Taken with my G12 with an Inon M67 165mm Close up / Macro wet lens attached to the front of the housing which I had borrowed from a mate to try out. Overall I am happy with the way this one turned out - the crab was about 80mm across.

I have since purchased one of Jeff Mullins Close up /Macro lenses and hope to get to use it very soon.

I just found this thread. I have been using a G7 in an Ikelite housing for several years. I have been very happy with the pictures it takes. Here is a thread where I posted some some pics from St.Lucia.

http://photography-on-the.net/forum/showthread.php?t=1226925

And here are some others pictures I have taken with this set up.

It is not a DSLR, but for the price you cant go wrong.

Thanks for looking
Chris
