Adam…the fishing was off the charts as expected. We caught some rainbows that were right at 30 inches. The downside was the salmon were not dropping eggs yet….and the fish were on the skinny side as a result. The fish below will be a pig in another month.Aug 13, 2010 at 10:14 pm #73561
Steve how wide is that lens? Water clarity aside those are very good images, I’m surprised at the width you’re getting there.

It’s the FIX UWL-04 Fisheye Lens w/dome port…… 0.42x magnification with a 160° field of view. The zoom lens on the S90 was pulled back to 28mm.Aug 13, 2010 at 11:10 pm #73563
Very impressive, thanks Steve.

Some real good info there Steve, thanks for sharing 🙂Nov 16, 2010 at 2:13 pm #73566
Steve, have you shot any underwater video with your canon? I watched a HD underwater video with a G12 and canon’s underwater housing that looked really cool (once you get into the diving about 1 min into it).Nov 17, 2010 at 8:20 am #73567
what I’ve found interesting is the quality of the pics you can get even with a cheapie like the fuji xp10 as long as water quality and light is there.
will explore more over winter with grayling and pike but I only bought the camera as a tough throwaway for my son to practice photography with and have found myself pleasantly surprised.
oh, and hello guys 🙂 1st postDec 21, 2010 at 1:14 am #73568
Here’s something I’d like to try…..underwater panorama.
I think it would be a neat concept to integrate a flyfising scene into an underwater pano. It would bring on a whole set of challenges though….like ripples, bubbles and refacted light. Might be fun to try though. Corey, Matt, Henry, Morsie, Graham …anyone up for a little experimenting? 😉Dec 21, 2010 at 1:38 am #73569
Here’s a couple from the October Smokies trip. I’d like to do a full pano similar to these with maybe more of the fisherman and all of the streambed in the photo.May 6, 2012 at 12:26 pm #73570
Another reasonably priced housing for a P&S camera:
The Olympus E-PL1 camera body and Olympus PT-EP01 underwater housing.
On another note, Fisheye FIX now has a body to fit the Canon S-100.May 9, 2012 at 5:57 pm #73571
Sweet files Steve.
I’ve pretty much decided that UW for me will rarely be anything more than a novelty. Id love to do more, but clarity just sucks.May 10, 2012 at 12:29 am #73572

I’ve been a lurker on this site for quite some time. Last year while going through cancer treatment, it was this thread that inspired me to get into underwater photography when I was feeling better. I bought an Ewa Marine baggy after seeing all the cool pics and went at it around the various rivers not too far from home
When the water is prime for catching, it’s not so prime for shooting
Managed to sneak up on a few browns this weekend as they fed

Mike, congratulations on both counts. Learning to photograph fish underwater and beating the C. Neither one could have been easy, especially getting those browns to pose.

Just thought Id update this for anyone considering. The new(ish) player in the game are the micro 4/3rds cameras. A large step up from compacts and just a hair short of DSLRs.Jun 28, 2012 at 4:45 pm #73575
The more i see photos from guys with the EWA bags…the more i am convinced that i “need” one.Mar 2, 2013 at 1:40 am #73576

I had an EWA Marine bag, and sold it (on this forum actually). I couldn’t get it to work well with the lenses I had at the time.
Now I’m really interested in the Outex housings. Going to wait until the Big O goes into production (it’s on kickstarter right now) and will likely buy that model.Mar 27, 2013 at 1:45 am #73578
I have been using an aquatech surf housing designed for Nikon D7000 and gotten some great images with this setup and the LP-3 dome port. It is pretty light in hand too because of the materials they use. I am attaching a few shots. I am actually selling the housing because I have upraded bodies, I will post it in the classified section now. Get in touch at LSE@sonic.net if you’re curious about this setup. Aquatech makes some awesome stuff!Jun 10, 2013 at 6:51 pm #74003

After 2yrs of using the Ewa Marine U-B and equivalent U-B100 model except with the tripod mount here are some of my thoughts: Pros – Relatively inexpensive and I’ve been extremely happy with the pictures I’ve taken with my Canon 40D + Tokina 11-16 tucked inside.
Cons: I’ve experienced severe leakage with both Ewa marine housings I’ve owned within 1yr of purchase. The baggies don’t like frosty temperatures – The seams blew wide open on both while steelhead fishing in late October. The 40D was brought back to life both times after a day on an air vent – The lens came back to life but needs to be professionally cleaned inside. For those wondering, it took 9 months and $72 to ship it to and from Germany to get it repaired (sent via local Ewa Marine dealer here in Toronto). It would’ve cost $114 to get it back sooner (I wasn’t in a rush).
On the bright-side, I just finished 3.5 months of chemo and there’s nothing like purchasing some new toys with your mom & dad’s credit cards 😀
