Definately agree on the non-photographic life partner- my wife gets to carry half my stuff!
One thing we have learnt is to use a backpack that doesn't look too heavy when the check in staff are thinking about weighing it. We have got away with way overweighted carry on by saying "only my backpack" when asked what carry on we have, and making it look nice and light.

In Topic: Condition of Maldives Coral

I was there in September and all I noticed was you could tell when the dive site was near a resort as the coral was destroyed! Other than that it was an amazing trip and I highly recommend it.

Here's my favourite of the year.
This was taken during a trip with my wife and a few from our local dive club to the Maldives. It's a destination I always dreamt about, so we jumped at the opportunity.
I had got a 100mm macro lens for my birthday from my wife, but didn't get a chance to get it in the water before the trip. Most dives were going wide angle- with the hope of Manta's and Whale Sharks (which didn't disappoint).
I like this shot because it seems so surreal, being able to clearly see it's "teeth". I have it printed 12x16 in the entrance to our unit and it looks so menacing, even though the Anemonefish is tiny!

Great shot, was it shot by 100mm?
How about the view finder from the Ikelite housing? is it easy to see?
did you use the live view feature underwater?


That was with the 100mm lens.
The viewfinder isn't the best but it just takes some getting used to!
Live View is a waste of time and I never use it!
