Topics I've Started

First photo dive with almost complete G10 setup

19 September 2009 - 03:13 AM

My cousin who works at Banyan Tree Vabbinfaru took me along for two dives this morning :guiness:

Was a great chance to test out my kit. The arms and strobe really made a HUGE difference. I think I can finally start taking some worth while UW stuff.

Canon G10 in OEM housing, Sea & Sea YS-27 DX strobe and this small diopter I found lying around. I just held the thing infront of the port. All I need now is that new subsee and I should be good to go ;). Images uncropped.

How's the diving like in Tasmania?

01 July 2009 - 02:43 AM

I'm probably going to be doing my BSc in Marine Science at University of Tasmania next year. Whenever I tell someone about it, the first thing they say is something along the lines of "it's bloody cold down there!".

I suppose the only way to dive in such cold waters is using dry suits? I'm from the Maldives and I hate wearing even the thinnest of wetsuits. Does the marine life make up for the cold?

Would really like to hear from people who have dived there! :clapping:

edit: aah did some hunting around online and

says that it's not as cold as people tell me it is! I'm starting to look forward to this now :)

Bright yellow slug on net attached to FAD

We saw this only on one FAD. Which was also the only one that happened to have this kind of net.

Sorry for the blown highlights but this was the only decent one I could get. Currents were strong and the net was billowing about.

Location I think was about 20km outside of Lhaviyani Atoll, Maldives.

This seems really cool! If the image quality is as good as the A series, this could be quite a hit :(

Favourite Dive Magazines?

14 April 2009 - 02:34 AM

So what mags do you guys like reading? Are there any ones with more of a focus on photography? I'm thinking about subscribing but am a bit confused by the shear amount of choices coupled with not having read many hehe. From what I've seen so far DIVE magazine (UK) seems pretty good.

Also are there any "must read" UW photography books? Technique, ID, photo showcase or otherwise.

Thanks :good:
