Philippine air help

20 May 2012 - 03:34 PM

Hello all,
We are off to the Philippine's this week.
I had been told by the Agent (that is now away on a trip) that the baggage restrictions would be based on the original carriers restrictions. In this case it's American.
I usually take the camera rig and lenses in two carry ons. I take one carry on around 25lbs and my wife takes the other (15lbs). American says we can take 2 checked bags each, to 50lbs.
We go from USA to PEK (Beijing). From there to manila.
Today I was told that regardless of the originating carrier philippine airlines will only allow 15lbs per carry on and checked bags to 30lbs. To top it off the website is down.
Anyone have experience with this?
Thanks,
Erik

While going through pictures I saw these 3 guys around a neck crab. Yellow/red with clear tails. Maybe 3-4mm in length. I have cropped and lightened the pic.
We were in Roatan in August at about 60 fsw. Never seen them before but never looked for them either. Any ideas?

Honest opinions please

Okay all,
I am lucky enough to have a very supportive (and biased) wife. We just returned from our second trip with our D90 and Nauticam Housing. This go around our boat mates jumped on her bandwagon and showed some real support for my images. I am a horrible self critic so I see many flaws.
I have a thick skin and can take it so please let me know you thoughts. My goal was to just post a few images but by the time I got home the wife had already uploaded over 100 shots. If you would please breeze though the Flickr link and let me know your thoughts. Any pointers would be great. Fire away. Any chance at doing calendars or prints in my future? Or am I just letting her swell my head?

Thanks in advance,

Edit: on suggestion of below i am posting a new link with 18 images.

60 d lens noise

14 August 2011 - 05:54 AM

Not sure what category was best so I put it here. Please move it if it is in the wrong place.

My trusty old Nikon 60mm just started to make a knock/rattle noise. It is as if it were suddenly very worn. If I turn the lens over or shake it slightly I get light knocking out of it. The telescoping parts seem to have a bit of play, by feel only (not visually). It does focus sharp and all the aperture blades function normally.

We leave next Friday for out next trip and now i am worried it may fail while we are gone.

Has anyone seen/felt anything like this before?

Thanks in advance,
Erik
