Default D7000 Goes Swimming

The idea was to dive with the seals off Puffin Island Wales. However the conditions were very poor and visibility underwater near zero. I ended up standing waist deep in the swell about a foot away from these seals. Taken with a Tokina 10-17 fisheye set at 17mm. I used ISO 800 because it was a very dull day and I'm pleased with the lack of noise. Had to crop them a bit because of water splashes on the housing port.

Hi,
What type of underwater housing were you using?

The seal in the last frame is certainly keeping a wary eye on you

I use an Ikelite polycarbonate housing. I'm on my fourth I find them good value and robust. there are housings with better egonomics but they tend to cost at least twice as much as the Ikelite housings.
