Sample U/W Photos from Olympus XZ-1
« on: 28 Feb 11, 22:49 »
Disclaimer: Most of these photos are taken by Mr Mel Lee aka, melshlee... as I was having problem using my DSLR setup for the 1st time. For a full review on the camera... look for the reviews from the other websites like ClubSNAP.

Underwater photos has been taken with the standard Olympus underwater white balance. No underwater Strobe light was used with the XZ-1 and all flash photos are by XZ-1's built-in flash only.

Non of the photos had been Photoshop beside resizing.... no crop or anything else.

#21 - Soft Coral



#22 - Harlequin Shrimp 1



#23 - Harlequin Shrimp 2



#24 - Harlequin Shrimp pair



While we did took some Wide Angle shots... sadly, almost none of them turn out well due to water condition at most of the dive site. But the capability of the XZ-1 is most impressive for close-up underwater photography. Photo #23 is beyond what my old Canon Powershot is capable of... the full size photo is clear and sharp and alittle cropping would have shown details of this little shrimp.

If I was to upgrade my old PnS powershot... this camera would be one.  ;)

Just Macro.... as Super Macro doesn't allow ou to use the built-in flash. And NO Wet Lens is used....
