Just wanted to offer my assistance with any DSLR or Photoshop questions. I am a part time photographer and seeings, I'm receiving a lot of help on this forum with the fish/aquarium side of things, thought it was only right to offer help on something I know about.
Ok since your offering what would be my best option for my money (not trying to break the bank lol) for reef photography under actinics.
No worries! Firstly I'll make the assumption were talking tank and not underwater. It really depends if you want it solely for this purpose. Any modern day DSLR will be fine. The key thing for shooting in this lighting is having the ability to change settings and also take in RAW format. This allows you to really control the whole image on editing. Any entry level Nikon or Canon DSLR. I'm sure alot of budget compacts can return okay images.. However I personally want to capture exactly what my eyes see.
Ya I want something that is just amazing quality and true colors with good close-up shots of polyps. I would also want this to be able to capture good fish shots so higher the shutter speed the better. That's pretty much all I take pictures of too lol.
