wow I know the video is not the best, I found it focus hunted even on dry land but this surprised me , unfortunately nothing outstanding on YouTube confirms suspicion that is really is a stills camera. Makes the Nikon AW 100 look good and I went to video on that because the stills were hopeless :-(.

Yep seems like I  am not the problem myself this tşme it is not the best video tool on its class, both on the land and underwater it seems... But stills were alright to me (without any additional light, they seems fine)

But i should keep apetture somewhere between 3,5 - 4,5 otherwise fısh move quicker than i estimated.

the biggest problem I had was sediment turbidity reducing visibility, you don't notice it as much while in the water or on the screen but once magnified it ruins an image.

I also suffered about it but one technique surprisingly help that out. Somehow on its "art" way...
