In Topic: Sony AX100 question

Oh Tom, I'm sorry! I didn't read your entire question fully! I thought you didn't understand how to get into PAE. That message just tells you it's in PAE mode.  It's a normal message! :)  Only after I'd been up all night did I finally understand your question fully. ;)

Tom, if I remember correctly,  if the IRIS,GAIN,SHUTTER numbers do not have an A but an E in front, it's in MANUAL. So you need to hit MANUAL to switch back to Automatic mode, then use PAE to program each setting again. :)

I agree with Tom and Eun Jae.  The 16-35IS is the better optical lens overall.  

In Topic: Favorite dive-sites in New South Wales?

24 October 2014 - 08:57 AM

South West Rock's Fish Rock Cave for the sharks, Jervis Bay's  seal dives and If you can delay till late Feb/Mar, the PJ sharks aggregate to breed,  Byron Bay's Julian Rocks is usually good but other sites are so so.  These are the highlights and faves to many.
If you need to be local to Syd, I've always liked  Ship Rock and Palm Beach.

In Topic: Loloata Island, PNG or Great Barrier Reef? Which option to choose?

Loloata is ok, but as an alternative, you can also dive from Port Moresby's Bootless Bay via the Dive Centre.  John runs a nice operation with great freedom for photographers.  He knows a plane wreck which is great for wide angle (visibility permitted).  I have fond memories of Horseshoe Reef and Suzies Bommie as dive sites.  Make sure you have a safety sausage or even rent John's  dive reel/buoy if you go to the bommies on your own, it's a long way back if the boat loses you to the currents! :)

Depending on where you are going with your holiday, there's also Madang, Tufi, Kavieng, Rabaul among other towns with diving and resorts as well.  You don't say so it's hard to give you the right info.
