9th Annual Ocean Art Underwater Photo Contest Winners Announced

Thu, 14/01/2021 - 01:49

Underwater explorers took photos in their own backyards or select destinations open to travel and revisited their archives to bring us some eye-catching photography. This unique assortment of photos could not have been possible without the help of our generous sponsors who have all had to navigate a changing travel and dive industry.

Call for entries: Underwater Tour Awards 2021

Australia, 11 January 2021: Entries are now open for the Underwater Tour Awards 2021. We have added two new awards this year to include not just photographers, but also creatives and eco-citizens everywhere.

Guru Awards These awards feature five Categories, a publicly-voted People’s Choice prize, plus the ultimate prize for the top-scoring photographer across all the categories, the Grand Guru prize!

Pixelmator PRO 2

It is integrated with Metal, Apple’s hardware-accelerated 3D graphics and compute framework, standard library, and GPU shading language, thus providing increased speed in various image-editing processing steps, by a factor of 15x. The user interface has been completely overhauled, and now matches the macOS 11 (Big Sur) design. A new Effects Browser, interface customization, and workspaces for photography, design, painting and illustration are included.

Ikelite Underwater Housing for Canon EOS R5

It is made of ABS-PC (an advanced form of poly-carbonate), is depth-rated to 60m, features Ikelite’s own “dry lock,” has a valve for a vacuum pump, weighs only 5.4 lb (~2.4kg) with tray and handle and is compatible with Ikelite’s DL system lens ports. The included manual hotshoe, with Ikelite ICS-5 bulkhead, supports manual strobe exposure with a wide variety of strobes, including Ikelite, Sea&Sea, Inon, Retra and others. For Ikelite strobes, an optional TTL converter can be added.

Fujifilm FinePix XP140

Its 16.4MP CMOS sensor enables still shots in JPG, UHD 4K (15fps) video recording (30fps in HD mode), and ISO 100-12800 sensitivity range. The camera is equipped with a (non-changeable) Fujinon 5x optical zoom lens, which covers a 28-140mm equivalent focal length range, and sensor-
shift image stabilization. The XP140 comes with a 3in 920k-dot LCD monitor for composition and image review.
