Re: Underwater footage with Lumix G80/85

Those fish are no joke if they attack.

I can't find the image, but a few years ago I saw an article about a Japanese photographer whose camera was bitten by a Titan Trigger.   This was a full-size dome port on a DSLR from the looks of it.  There was a nice 1 inch hole right in the middle of the glass - obviously the rig was ruined.

I've only seen them once, in Tahiti.  The dive master warned us to stay clear as it was mating season and the fish get more aggressive and territorial.   I watched on for several minutes as it simply ate one-inch-thick branches of hard coral and spit them out.
