I'd like to know what camera, digital/film was used for the photos posted. It can be helpful when taking my own.

Nikonos V with 15mm lens and 2 sec daylight exposure. Fujicrome400 slide film scanned by the local 1 hour photoshop to 18MB (4-5 MB pix) i wish i could scan them to 50MB but the shop did not have the right equipment.

The 15mm lens makes the diffference, i was like a meter or so away from the gun so the viz looks a lot better then it was.

How did you keep the camera steady for 2 sec exposure? You bring a tripod with you?

I was using Nikon 4300 (digital) in Fantasea Pro Housing with Sea and Sea 20mm (I think) WAL and Sea and Sea YS-90 strobe for any pics with strobe in them.

Well I can verify that the periscope is intact on the U-260. Seems everyone has heard rumours that it had been taken. Took this on Saturday...

Ah thx Donny, i have been annoyed about that for a loong time now, and its great that the rumors are not true. Myselfe, Peace and MickL are off to dive the U260 this weekend and it would be to bad if some "treasure hunter" had stolen the skyscope

Any more pictures from Baltimore ?

These 2 are unedited... when I get home I'll see if I can photoshop a few more of them to get them a bit clearer..

Dived the Kowloon bridge on Sunday but vis wasn't as good at all so pics didn't come out so well. Quite pleased with these 2 from the U-260 though. Think I'm slowly improving a bit. Must learn how to photoshop properly to remove backscatter etc.

Great pics donny!

Try also Neat Image the demo version is freeware for non-commercial use and works wonders on some pictures, try also USM after resizing.

Here's a pic of a crayfish from my trip to Inis Meain this weekend...

Some of the best diving I've done in Ireland is around the Aran Islands

Very nice pic Donny, almost makes Irish diving look tropical. The viz seems very good. How deep was the shot taken, there seems to be loads of light

Pretty sure it was at 25 metres. I used a strobe to bring the colour back to this shot but its the original and not photoshopped at all. Here is a pic taken with ambient light to show what the vis etc is like. Some great reefs and overhangs etc. The diver at the top of the picture is actually looking at this crayfish and pointed it out to me when I caught up. The bottom here is around 28 metres. I'm quite sad to say that my camera actually flooded on this very dive and is completely ruined. I noticed soon after I took these shots. Hopefully I'll be replacing it in the near future.... As you can probably see... the memory card survived
