In Topic: Configuring a MacBook for Dive/Photography Travel

I agree with Adam. Pay for the 1TB upgrade, especially if you are going to shoot RAW video on the 5D3.

I also think you need to consider the Retina resolution on the 13" MBP makes text VERY small.  If you don't have good eyes/corrective eyewear (presbyopia etc), software menus can be tough to read.  The 15" has that extra bit of real estate.  I definitely agree with your idea of going to an Apple Store to view the screens with the intended software.

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.
