Hi Bigfatfish

Actually, even without a strobe, you can get decent results. You have to know and be aware of the limitations of (i) the built-in flash and (ii) shooting without any flash/strobe. In short, the built-in flash can only illuminate about 2 feet and works well only in good vis.

For a start, try macro shots cos you can get v nice results using just the built-in flash. For wide angle shots, in many instances, no flash may produce a more pleasing result (cos less/no backscatter). Personally, i find that using a red/orange filter helps greatly for wide angle shots when shooting w/o strobe.

Do a search on the "who are divers" thread and you'll see lots of valuable info as well as many photos posted which are taken w/o strobe. Good luck and have fun. ;)

Bigfatfish,
I still think that as long as you take a "clear" and "focused" picture, Adobe photoshop will have a colour solution for you. There is no reason why such lens need to be used at all. Only problems with internal flash is back scatters, not powerful enough for wide angle, and can't take pictures using super macro mode or macro at a close distance since the flash is normally block by the housing/lens.

Ok to shoot without strobe for depth of less than 5m. Beyond that pics would look wash out. PS can correct colours but cannot create colours.
