Hello folks.

Spent 12 days on board the True North exploring west PNG and the floppy whale sharks of Cenderawasih Bay.
Did over 20 dives, took the old FX1 and Phenom, which did not miss a beat.
Cannot post any video as its going to air but there are some images here.

Private charter jet from Darwin too...
Shot some fantastic whale shark footage at night with lights on scuba underneath the fishing platforms.:-)
It does not get any better than this trip, the passengers pay $25/30k each for the 12 day trip :-)

Some more stuff here on Marks blog (part owner of True North)

The True North is a very nice boat and Mark is a cool guy. A bit of a mad dancer but a cool guy. Did he get his 1Dx yet?

Yes it sure is, one of the best ways to cruise indo/PNG that's for sure.
No Mark was using a Olympus OM-D in a housing.
Uptop I think it was a Canon 5D3 too.
He certainly knew his way around Photoshop too.
