In Topic: Bali Bobbit Worms ?

23 August 2008 - 04:17 AM

Hey Simon,
Tulamben in the east ? I know, I know. Actually did my Dive Master there.

I`m aware that Menjangan could get boring fairly fast. We have really fallen in love with the relaxed diving in Tulamben, Kubu, etc. But we have would like to see some different places this time. Nusa Penida and the Amuk bay sites -while nice- have just not been relaxing enough for us. That`s why we would like to explore the North coast some more. I`ve never been to PJ for example.
Thanks for the hint with Renaud. I`ll consider him and will look up his site right now.

Have you seen the Bobbits during the day or only at night ? Id guess they are only proper photo subjects when its dark.

As for the Gilis I always heard that they suffered a lot underwater in recent years. Not sure if it`s worth the trip as I am not too much into mushrooms.
(hope the turtles have stayed off those...)

Thanks for the quick reply.
I can imagine that they are not _that_ interesting to observe. Would love to do some pretty Macro shots though.

So far we are not booked with anyone yet. Our vague plan is to spend some dive time on the places we haven`t really been to in the NorthWest:
Amed, Seraya (just a little Tulamben), PJ, Menjangan, Secret Bay

As today Dr. Ritter started a lawsuit with DIGIDEEP.com accusing us to demote his academic title in public

Whoopsy Daisy. :)

It seems he is getting more popular with each passing day.

Is there anyone he doesn`t want to add to his long list .................?

In Topic: Olympus E-3

To answer Gary's question, yes you can use the 14 to 42 zoom port.


Although I`d like to chime in for the INON port here as it allows you to use the INON wet lenses for more Macro when you really need it.

PMA is coming is coming in the next two or three weeks in Las Vegas. I would guess that Olympus will announce any new lenses at that time.

I you go for the 8 mm fisheye you may want to look at the Inon port for that lens. It is priced right and I have just finished testing one and like it very much. For a small dome I thought the images quality was quite good.

Thanks Phil,
in the E3 thread you mentioned that the fisheye requires more skill than the 7-14 wa.
Which of the two lenses do you prefer ?
