Hello all,

Getting back into diving after a long break. I recently went diving at Sund Rock and Octopus Hole, just north of Hoodsport, WA in Hood Canal. I only have the camera and housing at the moment, no light. We were blessed with amazing visibility and I was was able to bring some colors back processing the raw photos even without lighting. I am looking for cost effective tray/arm/video light set ups. Any good resources for used gear? I'm also building my personal dive gear, and it is a little disheartening to realize a simple tray/arm/light setup will cost as much as the used regulator/octo/air integrated computer setup I am trying out and likely buying next week.

I am struggling with the best way to use the continuous AF with tracking. I watched the Backscatter video, but still unsure. I've been shooting on land with an original EM5, which recently died. It wasn't a great jump to get the EPL10 body used since it works with all my other lenses and the AOI housing is a great bargain compared to other mirrorless housing prices. The original EM5 didn't have good continuous AF, so I never used it. I did use back button focusing, so that is normal to me. Do I need to keep pushing down on the back button with CAF to keep it tracking? Is it beneficial to make the focus grid a little bit bigger? I had a ton of photos where the focus was just off, and can't tell if I was just missing my target with the single focus area or if it was because I was focusing with that then reframing my images. On some of it I just called it good enough for a first try. Also, any tips for shooting video with this setup? I don't really care about making cinematic videos, but I know a little bit of video editing and would love to get some clips of animal behavior from my dives.
