    Just the camera, no housing or add on lens.
    I tried to use my housing with my underwater lens, but without my strobes the lighting was not even close enough for good pics. Just to dark for things that small.

    I am hoping to get underwater soon and I would expect even better pictures since water is a magnifier. The settings above water should transfer well to underwater. I except strobe placement and working distance would be the only issues since I shoot TTL.

    You should take a few surface photos of coins or something similar and then the same object as close to the same shot underwater. I am curious how much of a difference it will make.

    Ok, So we finally got underwater last weekend to try some macro with my underwater camera.
    First I must premise this by saying we were at the Hudson Grotto and it is VERY dark water that sucks light up like a Black Hole. So there was practically nothing alive for macro except the little Clam that my tired eyes could find. So I had to make do with what I could find. There should be more to shoot at the Mega-Dive event.
    The last pic is from the back yard with the macro lenses I finally got.

    I know more of you are shooting/practicing for the Invasion, please do not be shy and post your efforts.
    I welcome any comments.

    Here are a couple of super macro shots taken in January at the Blue Heron Bridge. I used a 60mm or 12-50mm lens with a super macro converter wet lens (Nauticam). You can get some really up close shots but you are almost touching your subject. To get really clear shots - the subject should not move and not mind you almost touching it.
