In Topic: Southern Mozambique - Tofo Location Guide

21 March 2014 - 09:24 AM

Hi there,


For those who have dived both Zavora and Tofo, can you tell me how these locations compare?

I'd like to go diving Mozambique in 2015, but I am not sure I will have time to try both places. Zavora is attracting to me as they support Rebreathers, and Tofo has this reputation for mega fauna (X-ray article dating back to 2011).


Sadly, I have also seen some posts referring to increased shark finning there :angry2: 

So I'm wondering if Tofo is still as nice as the X-ray article described?


thanks for your advice guys,

It all depends on the sensor size... With a full frame sensor you will need lenses that are as big and as expensive as for a SLR... It's got nothing to do with mirror or no mirror....

So yes it brings the A7 much closer to SLR size than a m4/3rd but I still hope the total package incl. a housing will still be more compact and lighter than for a FX SLR...

But for a given sensor size, I thought lenses would be smaller because the sensor is closer to the glass (thanks to the absence of mirror).

This is why Olympus micro 4/3 lenses are smaller than olympus 4/3 lenses, whereas sensor size doesn't change.

hi all,

the cameras look sexy, and their price reasonable... but the lenses!?!? The 28-70mm f/4 is almost the price of my Nikon 24--70mm f/2.8...

Aren't mirorless lenses supposed to be smaller, and then cheaper?

In really dirty water you just can't avoid lighting up the stuff in the water. What you can do is make it blend in to the lighter background. Shoot up towards the surface and play with shutter speed for more or less ambient exposure.

Indeed, I discovered this option recently by experimenting. However I found out that my flashes didn't bring sufficient colour on the subjects then...

I must say I shoot TTL, so probably the camera considered ambient light was quite sufficient (I slowed down shutter speed), and did not put much power in the flashes.

Does it sound like a realistic explanation? Then I'll probably have to go manual on the flashes, in such circumstances.

Misses by a mile, if you ask me...
