Plan ahead and secure a great rate for our group dive trip to Crystal Blue Resort in Anilao, in the Philippines for March 10-26 of 2015. Early booking guarantees an excellent rate, and allows you to save for the trip, as payments are in three installments. This trip is designed for underwater photographers: the resort is designed with underwater photographers in mind. Anilao is a great spot for macro photography, but boasts beautiful coral reefs as well. You'll find oodles of nudibranchs, cephalopods, and frogfish galore. We are focusing on Pacific Northwest divers, as direct flights are available from the West Coast to facilitate transport, but if you are interested and live elsewhere, please contact me. The base rate for the trip is $1965 U.S. (dbl. occupancy) for 10 nights accommodation, all meals, transit from Manila, up to 4 dives a day, and Nitrox. Airfare is not included. There will be presentations on photography and marine life, and some fun activities to boot. Spaces are already filling up, so please don't hesitate, as the resort has only 16 rooms. A $500 U.S. deposit secures your spot. Please check out my article in the latest issue of Pacific Northwest Underwater Photo Society's e-zine for further details and contact information.

Cheap lens for macro/Sigma for Nikon/Aquatica

01 September 2013 - 11:25 AM

Camera closet cleaning time. I have had this lens sitting around for a few years. It is a hacked 28-80 Sigma lens: in other words, it has been modified to shoot macro full time. It works perfectly with the Aquatica focus gear for the Nikon 60mm f2.8D ( #18728) used as a zoom gear in the regular macro port with focus knob: no extension is needed. It is very lightweight, and works really well for those times that you have no idea what you are going to find. I have used it, and the optics are not bad.

 

If you have an Aquatica housing for Nikon, and want a cheap way to get into macro, let me know. $50 US + shipping. You will of course have to get a gear, unless you want to zoom it to a particular position and just go for it. It will not auto-focus on entry level cameras, so check your manual, or PM me and I can let you know if it will autofocus on your particular camera.

 

Cheers,

Marli
