Lactoria cornuta

(Linnaeus, 1758)


Ilan Lubitz Hi Guys. I decided to joined the trend of using pocket camera.This will be on top of my Nikon DsLR. So I bought the following. Canon G15. Housing Fantasea. all accessories needed. Strobes Inon Z-240. and Ys -02. I just started to master this camera. It is totally different from using DsLR. I thing I got to idea how to use it properly but it will take more time to get perfect results from it. During day time it is very easy to take shot but the problems starts during night dive. even so I am very happy with the results. Attached my first shot for night dive as night dives are my favorites. This shot was taken yesterday. Anilao pier. canon G15. Inon Z-240 Longhorn cowfish (Lactoria cornuta)

Alex Ford Nice shot.Be careful with any build up of condensation in the housing . It WILL ruin the electronics of the G12. get some desiccant bags in the gap between the housing and camera.

Terri Allen I never needed dessicant for my G12. Put gear together in constant temp dry air like air con

Terri Allen G16 latest model now

Ilan Lubitz Tnx Guys for the Info =D

Terri Allen Know of people flooding cameras as dessicant gets caught in o ring

Ilan Lubitz Hope it will not happened to me =D
