In Topic: Bonaire truck rental recommendations ?

02 December 2017 - 02:01 AM

I do not leave the key nearby.  My swim suit has a pocket with a velcro'd flap and that is all inside the wetsuit.  All trucks I have used there had old style metal keys, not key fobs, so this makes diving with your key easy.

Also leave the windows partially open so people passing by know its unlocked.


BEWARE of credit card insurance for truck rental.  Nearly all insure CARS, not trucks!  I use American Express Premium insurance.  MUCH lower cost than getting insurance from the truck rental company.  Its usually under $30 for your whole trip, not a daily fee.  And its easy to use.  You sign up with your card.  There is no charge unless you rent a car/truck with that card then it automatically kicks in.

Right there with you on being forced to the subscription on Lightroom.  I was thinking of Exposure X3.

The free trial looks appealing.

In Topic: Tokina 10-17

Will the Nikon 8-15 work in small domes made for the 10-17?  I use a Nexus 1017 dome.

The minimum focus length on the 10-17 is just under 14mm and the 8-15 is at 16mm.

The Nikon is also longer, would I need an extension?

Thank you for the kind comments.  It is a wonderful place to dive.


Please direct your friends to my website any time you like for seeing photos.

Showing off photos is one of the reasons I have the site.

You can buy photos there as well.

Remember to budget for software.  You are likely going to want Lightroom.  You can lease it or buy it, which is a different can of worms for a different discussion.
