But please feel free to comment!

This species is called Crown Jellyfish.

Its so odd, I can honestly say I've never heard of this species. Its really pretty though :heart:
I somehow came up with the name 'jellemoniefish' before reading the comment XD

AS i said it took a long time to find out it's name. I used to call it "Latexfish". :lol:

Its hard to find the name of species you've never seen before, especially if it is a particularly varied group of animals. The one vice of every nature photographer XD

how does your submarine equipment cost you ?
Zyklotrop's avatar
Really depends on what you get. If you've got a digicam of one of the better known manufacturers, like e.g. Canon or Olympus, you can buy wetboxes for relatively low prices. If you hav a DSLR it'll cost you more. Some companies, like Olympus, sell wetboxes for their DSLRs. Those are mostly made of plastic and not really cheap. The best and most expensive wetboxes you can buy are custommade ones of companies that specialise on wetboxes. Those are mainly made of alluminum or carbon fibre and cost up to €3000,-.
You'll also have to buy at least one submersible flash and those are also quite expensive. All in all I'd say you'll have to invest between €2500,- to €3000,- to be well equiped. Underwater photography is quite expensive.

Ok Thx and I imagine it takes some time before being able to produce nice shot ?

Yes! First of all you'll have to become both a skilled diver and a skilled photographer. If you can't keep a neutral buoyancy without concentrating on it or kicking your legs, then it's no use to start trying to take photos. Same aplies to your camera, you have to know it and what you're doing. No use trying to figure out stuff while under the surface. Once you've managed to be a skilled diver and photographer, the last step will be to know about the "objekts", e.g. fish. Know where to look for them at what time and how they behave, then how you should behave to get close enough to take a good photo. :-)
