Default Snorkeling & freediving photos and videos, Red Sea, Egypt (Panasonic FT3/ TS3)

Just return from Egypt, White Knight beach (near Sharks Bay), Sharm el Sheikh:

photos:

movies:
soon

Almost all material was recorded using "underwater" scene mode, AWB, continuous focus set to OFF, best picture quality, 8MP at depths up to 17 meters and all of them were made during snorkeling/freediving (mask and fins only), with "naked" FT3 / TS3, without any additional light. Pictures were imported to Picasa3, slightly corrected (some), resized and exported.

Nice shots. I'd love to get that close to a picasso trigger fish and I'm using scuba.

That one looks like a Titan Trigger fish I've been attacked by one of those and seen other people with nasty bites from Titans. Great pictures and you can really see those teeth. The Picasso is picture P1040814-vi I've always found them very skittish.
