Hi Primus those are truely wonderful shots. I was just recently lucky enough to purchase a FT2 on ebay and looking forward to using it in Bali for surfing later this year. I appreciate your tip about only opening the camera in your hotel room to combat condensation etc. If you dont mind sharing any other tips in using the cameraI would really appreciate it.
regards
Steve

I did not tested my new FT2 underwater yet (I am planing to take photos and movies of Whalesharks in Yucatan, Mexico in June), but I have some tips for FT1 using UW: for snorkeling use beach & snow program, for freediving on depths greater than 2 meters scene underwater, aplly some silicone lubricant on the edges of rubber sealings (SD and connectors doors), switch to continuous AF and switch OFF flash and all the sounds.

Thanks primus the silicone lubricant on the rubber seals sound like a good idea. Good luck with Whale shark spottiing with your next trip!
