Wow very nice work. I saw many of my favourite species. I love coral diving, but never been to that area.
I wonder what options you have with the underwater housing. What are the focus and exposure options?

Nice underwater footage. But especially liked the shots of the local peoples.

I just started a topic to document my progress with ML underwater over my next shoot in the Indian Ocean. Will be there for 3-6 months so let me know if I can test anything out!

I see that you say that Magic Lantern lets you change shutter and ISO. Not aperture, do you need a small iris to give you more depth of field? What distance must you pre-focus too?

There seemed to be a mixture of close ups and wide shots, that are hard to get all in focus. I wonder if you could use the ML Rack Focus to do pull focus underwater? That would be quite unique ;)
