Wow, nice series! What kind of strobe setup are you using? Your pics show good light and color balance! Very impressive resolution for the G16.

Thank You!

There is no strobe involved. I have a Fantasea G16 (external link) <<<(Click on link)and I only use the flash diffuser plate with the camera flash that comes with the housing. I adjust my flash intensity according to depth and light. The Fantasea flash diffuser plate eliminates any hotspots if the flash intensity is adjusted correctly. Oh, one other adjustment to the G16 is using the underwater mode for shooting.

If you like the pics, check out some of the Reef and Pelagic Videos (external link). This link is to my Flickr page. There is also a video legend created to tell you of each one.

Thank you for the response and link!

I checked out your flikr stream. Good stuff! And, looks like you had a great time! I am impressed with the density and diversity of marine life in Cozumel. Your G16 setup seems like a perfect and easy to use "rig", for scuba!

Looks like we were both in Cozumel in Feb again. I'm quite surprised by how bright your images are for no strobes. Maybe it's the fact most are very close to the camera. Either way NICE photos.

Who do you dive through? I have been with Dive with Martin for years. As for the camera, I get pretty close to subjects.

I dive with a few ops because I have so many friends I like to stay in touch with. My primary choice (best price to service rendered) is Tres Pelicanos & I did 6 days with them & 2 days with Blue XT Sea this year. Miguel at DWM is another friend from his time with Pelagic Ventures. I stay at Hotel Cozumel & although rare do the odd dive with Dive Paradise too. I've been going to Coz on a regular basis since 95.

Thank You. I am not using a strobe. I have a diffuser plate on the U/W housing that I keep in place to avoid hotspots. I then adjust the flash accordingly at depth to apply sufficient light. I generally adjust the flash to no more than "+1" and down to "-2". The G16 is in U/W Mode and all pics are shot in Program Mode.
