Submitted: Thursday, 5th January, 2012 00:15 (GMT)
Taken: Saturday, 10th December, 2011
Focal length: 10 mm
Shutter speed: 1/160 sec
Aperture: F6.3
ISO: 160
Notes: GH2 and Pany 7-14mm lens in a 10Bar housing with a Ikelite DS-161 strobe. All settings manual for camera and strobe. With a wide angle lens it can be tough to get a Turtle to give you a good look when you're both swimming and less then a meter apart. Any further away and the water really starts to degrade IQ as you can see by the coral which was about 2 meters away. Light doesn't travel well underwater so proximity is critical to show the true colors.
