In Topic: Utila is still good?

Are any of the Utilia resorts off the sand. I stayed at Inn of Last Resort on Roatan when it was open and the sand flies were minimal because the resort was away from the sand.


In Topic: Thinking about acquiring a viewfinder

I shoot 100% macro and use a 180 on my d300 and af-105-vr with and without a subsee +5 and +10. I have enever had a problem on the bottom or shooting up. In fact, with practice you can back off a couple inches and still see the image. I only dive a couple of trips a year and figured the 45 would forever be a pain.


In Topic: Advice on the Sigma 150mm 2.8

The Sigma did not work well in the Philippines because of the poor visibility. However, I am off to Bali and Wakatobi where the vis should be better. Pictures when I return.

Actually at the magnification of a +10 Sub See all I can do is get a single focus rectangle on a pigmy. Here is a writeup from yesteryear on the process. A very small pigmy in very low resolution from that presentation is attached. It has been formatted for the presentation but is full frame.

 

That was 2011. I have increased my technique since then but no interesting pigmys

 

 


In Topic: Nikon 105vr manual vs auto focus

I don't have a manual focus capability and I still do just fine with super macro shots. I set the camera in focus priority. I then get a bit too close and slowly back out until the camera decides it is focus and takes the shot. It is a frustrating process but the camera (d-300) is quite good at deciding it is in focus.
