On my 7D with the tokina 10-17 I shoot them all the time at 1/250 and get minimum motion blur. That being said, you need to be patient and shoot when they are still.

That is what I figured..just thought maybe someone had a suggestion.

Lokking good Sean,  

That little island was always one of my favorite spots in So Cal.  I still have dreams about the deep reef and wall 1/2 mile off the achorage.  Thanks for bringing it all flooding back.

 

Cheers,

Steve 

Well I hope it was good memories I brought back. I love that island.

Look again...

 

... images 079 and 080!

 

Blue Lagoon may not be the Hilton, but they are the best rooms in Chuuk. I can't imagine a dive operator offering free services, they are no free lunches, especially not in the middle of the Pacific Ocean! Reflect on just how expensive the Odyssey is: we have paid for the privilege of diving with them...

 

... and if you want to dive the San Francisco Maru, Blue Lagoon is likely to be a lot more accommodating than the Odyssey, who also charge for deco gas. As I reported, JJ is not at all keen on the risks of visiting R2D2.

Nice shoot of R2D2. Yeah I got one of the guides to take me in there. In terms of deco gas, my roomie was on a rebreather and used tri-mix on that dive. JJ credited him from whatever Helium they were able to rebank.

 

How was the weather when you were there? It rained on us everyday we were there in Feb.

I was there on the 70th anniversary of Operation Hailstone.

 

Nice images..no pics of R2D2? How did you like the Blue Lagoon? We stayed there after for that time you have to wait untl you go to the airport. I was not overly impressed with the Blue Lagoon as a hotel. The rooms were not that great. I also noticed they charge for everything at their dive shop. I loved the Odyssey. JJ  and his wife Kim are awesome. I hope to go back there in 2016. I do want to do more diving on the SF Maru. That is one of the wrecks that will probably survive the longest. It went straight down and not on its side like a lot of the other wrecks.

I just thought it was something different for people to see.
