:D Another late trip report for May 2011 dive trip. Dive Blog
1st trip with the new Olympus XZ1. Focusing is faster than the Canon G9. However I miss the 1 touch macro button! & I prefer the Canon software too... The panoramic function on XZ1 is fun tho!
Also have a new set of +5 & +8 macro lenses, still have to get used to it...

Nice report - jealous that you got to Atauro.... I did two weeks in Dili last year and dived many of the coastal sites plus Tasi Tolu and was pleased with my images and the trip overall, bit really wanted to get to both Atauro and Jaco as I have heard some good things about both places.

Do you have any contact info for either Barry's place on Atauro or the place you stayed at?

Hi! Don,
I have seen your beautiful prints at DTL... :)
Surprisingly, Tua Koin has a website... :) Atauro Island The mobile phone reception is not good around that area, do be patient & call back if the line is bad... :D Their number is (670) 723 6085. Their PC has broken down or the dial-up connection was so slow that they gave up on the internet... :)
