    excuse the ignorance but why do you go at night?
    Also, the close ups look fantastic but the 4'th one looks a bit grainy - is this due to ISO or the lack of light? I don't know much about underwater cameras, only normal ones :P I guess the same principles apply?

    Well, the night life completely changes. You see different fish out, tons sleeping, others actively feeding. It's also quite a spectacle of focused light and the same dive site can feel entirely different. My first time I was nervous jumping into the black water but almost immediately you get a sense of wonder especially because the water is so clear and if you shine your flashlight then 30m further everything lights up.

    Yeah the 4th one was just a quick snap, I didn't set any focus or anything but the camera has no idea what to do when all these light beams are coming in and out of the frame while you're trying to focus or stabilize so it raises ISO to cope but fails. I think I may have some wide angle shots where I'm behind a diver's light and they're completely black with the area in focus.

    My camera is a normal point and shoot pocket cam, just has an UW housing. I suuuuuck at topside photography but the same rules inherently apply.

    Hey Ike, sorry for the late reply. Been out of town lots lately and haven't been on the forum in ages.

    I took these in the southern Red Sea. We weren't allowed to do night dives here so much vs in the north due to reasons, but it was still pretty spectacular.

    If you're interested, here's what it looks like:
