    Thanks everyone for helping me out in deciding which gear to go with. I had my chance yesterday to go at it underwater with my rx100V and a ys-03 strobe. Relatively less powerful, but I'm content with the results from my first dive.
    I know I have scope to improve missed a manta ray shot because I couldnt figure out the settings fast enough, give it a few more dives - still learning from my mistakes.

    All photos are sooc (did crop) except the eagle ray, I dont have my workstation, but the images were good enough for posting. I'll be in Bali/Gili for another week and a half, more images coming up soon.

    #5. Pigmy Sea Horses: these are about 1 centimeter tall each, very tricky to shoot.

    Those are very cool. Very bizarre but in a good way.

    #2 is a sexy shrimp sometimes called an anemone shrimp and that’s a hammer coral it’s on.

    Thank you all... I think I was being too happy and Karma didnt like it!
    My strobe is malfunctioning now, alternating between red and green. Weird, I'm with a full powered new battery. Already missed the strobe in yesterday's night dive and the other 3 dives since then :blue:

    Those are all great! You have come a long way since the days back when you were given that DSLR, there is a book to be written in your life at some point. :)
    One of these days I will have to make you take me diving! ;)
