Here are some pictures from my dive trip in St. Thomas, USVI:
Flickr: EevelMonkee's Photostream
Most were taken with a Sealife DC1200 without strobe, set on underwater mode. I'm headed to St. Croix for diving now so I will have a full trip report in about a week. One of my favorites is attached but they're all on Flickr. Happy New Year!

Glad you liked the pictures. In St. Thomas, I dove with Admiralty and stayed at the Windward Passage. I'm just getting to St. Croix but I'm staying at Hotel Caravelle and diving with S.C.U.B.A. I will post a full review of the dive ops and hotels at the completion of my trip. If you would like to read some basic information just about the dives themselves, please check out the blog I recently started: Diving Addiction

I assume no internal flash either?

How deep for the first photo and what setting in the underwater mode? <25' or >25'?

Thanks and nice pics btw

I did not use an internal flash. I tried using the flash with the underwater mode on the camera and it blues the image. I would guess its a product of the red filter the camera adds in underwater mode. If you're referring to the picture in the thumbnail on the OP, its at around 12m (39ft) using the >25ft/8m mode. It was a sunny day with good vis so a fair amount of natural light was present. I have found that trying to use the same camera setting in lower light conditions or shooting a target in shadows will not produce a good image. The strobe would certainly help with this. The camera's "easy setup" menu has options for with/without external strobe and snorkeling/diving.
The first picture of my wife and me on the Flickr page was taken with another diver's camera, not the Sealife.
