Did you know that Mandarin fish mate just after sunset and that they live in small populations and are very skiddish  You can only find them using red lights  which they can t see.. The mating only lasts for a few seconds.

Question this message is importantHi, I have both of the above listed cameras and both have Ikelite housings with 2 Ikelite DS125 strobes. Can anyone give me some basic settings for each camera to improve the quality of my UW photography? I normally use the auto setting. The Canon G12 is TTL connected the Sony used EV Controllers for the strobes. I have a +7 Bluewater macro lens that fits both and a wide angle bubble lense for the Canon. I am trying to figure out how to program the cameras for best results U/W and don't want to be constantly changing the settings at least for now. I get decent pics but have most trouble at distance, obviously, and macro. I get pretty good pics at 2-6 feet. I have not used the Canon at all, I just purchased this camera used, the Sony I have used on about 20 dive trips and am getting better but still using Auto settings.
Any help would be appreciated,
