hi panda
thanks for the info
have just set my rig up at home and tried your advice,and the exposure is about right.
the only thing that doesnt make sense to me is that as soon as i point the camera at the sunlit window(yes we do get sunshine now and again :( in the uk)the camera is showing the shutter speed going right up to 1/1000 yet the strobes are still syncing(i use fibre optics)and i was under the impression that strobes will not sync with shutter speeds that quick.
unless,like apertures shutter speeds are different on compacts,i dont know.
any thoughts anybody?

hi stu
it was full moon when the whaleshark showed up in panglao too,i guess its something to do with the currents stirring up the plankton
anyway thanks for the info

cheers all
now i am split between leyte and anilao(maybe i will do both)
i did see my first whaleshark in bohol in janurary,but was very distant
am off on a liveaboard to the red sea in july so maybe i will get lucky there
not really got into macro yet,and still cant decide wether macro wet lenses (inon)are worth having(i know most of you guys use slr,so probably dont have an opinion) i will check previous posts to see what i can find.
regards to all

hi perry
i always seem to bypass anilao on my way to pg,where i have been 4 times,my wife is filipina so we always holiday in the pi,(not a problem for me :D )next trip is march 2011,was thinking of going back to tubbataha,but i feel is not good value for money,the diving is good but the liveaboard boats are not.
do you have the contact details for club ocellaris?
also i notice you have been to donsol,would you reccomend?
kind regards
