"I only had a chance to use this camera in open underwater conditions (A Florida Spring) once a few days ago. My initial impression is positive. I have been using a Sea & Sea DX-750G with a YS-15 strobe for almost 10 years before purchasing this camera. I used the Micro 2.0 along with the Sea Dragon 1500 light, which I used in deeper water and turned off in shallower water. Fewer that usual pictures seemed to be impacted by back-scatter or dimmer images, thus less editing has been necessary.
