What happened to my signiture? This was taken with a C4040 in an Ikelite housing and a DS-125 strobe using 1/250s and f/10.

Default BTW, was this at night?

with a 1/250 shutter speed and long (wide? deep?) depth of field I would think you would get more background in there.

Also, the composition is fantastic. Everything sort of culminates in the larger clownfish at the apex of the triangle.

No, this was a day shot but with pretty poor vis (heavy plankton) so it was in 'dim' light. With the 1/250 and f/10 the background is way underexposed so it comes out black.

For what it's worth, I probably shot nearly 200 rounds at various anemonefish on that trip, maybe 30 at this particular anemone....all for this one shot. Check out some of the goofs here . Click on each photo to see comments.

Default LOL, great commentary......

My favorite, and I know the feeling well......"Sigh"

Do you use auto focus? Supposed to cut down on the lag. I haven't used it much yet, but thinking about it for the Coral Sea, since I have 5 sets of batteries waiting for me.

I assume you mean 'full-time' autofocus. Yes, I've pretty much decided that's the way to go. It does make it faster IF the focus has locked. As you probably know, the autofocus on this camera has a tendency to search which it will still do in full-time mode under the right conditions.

Truth is, even if you have full manual exposure set and focus established, the lag is enough to screw up a shot like this. For the life of me, I can't figure out what the camera is doing in that period of time.
