Aquatica D100 w/Nikon 10.5mm
Aquatica’s Jean Bruneau gives his first impressions of the Nikon 10.5” fisheye lens (with Nikon D100 and Aquatica D100 housing). UPDATE - March 15, 2004 - Photos from under the ice, by Jean Bruneau.
We would like to spread the word about a public call to photographers for helping to protect the biggest fish on earth. In Jan 2004 sharktrust.org lined up together with Project-A.W.A.R.E to start tracing the migration routes of whale sharks. These routes maintain yet unknown and are essential for enforcing the protection of this lovely species.
If you have photos of a whale shark, you can help! All you have to do is to send a copy to sharktrust.org or Project-A.W.A.R.E, and quote the place and date you took the picture.
Scientist are going to match the dot pattern with other photos from their database to identify the shark. The dot pattern on the whale shark is unique as a human fingerprint The more submissions are forwarded to scientists, the more precise the estimation of the migration routes is going to be.
PMA 2004 Coverage
There are many new products being announced at this year's PMA Show in Las Vegas, including a new set of 8MP consumer cameras (which all use Sony's 8MP CCD), digital media card improvements (e.g. 8GB CF cards, 2GB memory stick pro cards, speed improvements), the first consumer camera to use a Foveon chip, and much more.
Instead of locally reproducing all of the press releases, I'd like to point you to Phil Askey's excellent product coverage of the show at his site, dpreview.com.
There is a lot of discussion going on in our forums about all of the new products. Please join us!
