Samsung Digimax V5 5.0 camera in a SPH-V4/V3 housing without a strobe. The majotity of my shots are done with ambient light, some using my dive light for effect and a very few using the internal flash, usually only those taken below 60 feet or so. I use the manual white balance to get enough ambient light on subjects deeper than 10-15 feet. I bought this particular camera and housing because it's rated to 230 feet. Most of the small housings are only rated to 100-130 feet. It's been a fun, if not frustrating learning experience trying to get pleasant shots without a strobe. It's a work in progress. Some day Im plan to get a "real" camera/strobe setup, but until then this one suffices.
