Been shooting with Canon G10 and G12 but upgrading to a Sony NEX-5N this month. Nauticam housing is on it's way. Have the E 18-55mm lens and plan on also getting the 16mm lens with Fisheye converter & Fisheye port.

Any recommendations on settings to shoot with?

Any recommendations on other lens/ports to buy?

Excited but nervous underwater photographer...

hi Heidi
I've been using the Sony Nex-5n camera lately and really enjoying it. Imho you have the most important lenses to own.

I'd start out shooting at F8, ISO 100 and change your shutter speed as needed.. and read the underwater photography guide alot!

You may want to get a macro lens (wet lens), the Dyron +7 or the Subsee +5 are good ones to look at, they probably will screw on to the end of your 18-55mm port.

Let us know how it goes - Scott

Thanks Scott! Added a macro lens to my order. Cant' wait!

Run a dive charter in Florida with my husband and always refer folks to this website. Such a ton of great and very helpful information! Really helped take my photos up a notch when I first started shooting with my G10.

Thanks and will let you know how it goes!
