Hi Scubysnaps,

I use (pro) SmugMug now for 3 years and just renewed my account there. I am extremely satisfied with them. The pro-version can be customized to your wishes and their (online) support is very accurate and fast. It will cost you a few dollars but in my opinion it is worth every cent. The pro-version gives you unlimited space and you can always download the original photo although it appears smaller and with a watermark on the site.

Have a look!

In Topic: Kuala Lumpur - U/W Photo Gear???

I don't know if you still need the information...

Just came back from KL. I saw several shops selling the brands you want. I think the best place to start is Low Yat Plaza.

In the KL yellow pages are some interesting addresses as well.

In Topic: Oh how times change! An video about ethical muck photography from Lembeh

30 October 2011 - 04:46 PM

This is a great movie and a super initiative from Critters@Lembeh. We started to use the video as a mandatory video to watch for all divers.

Unfortunately this does not only apply for Muck Diving.
Some photographers (in my experience these are more "professional wannabees") ignore the underwater environment completely, replace nudi's or alter the "scene" by breaking away corals that disturb their "composition" to get a shot... not to mention the touching of marine life to compensate their not available buoyancy...
Strangely enough some nationalities are worse than others... I will not go into details on that, we all know which ones.

I think it also is very helpful when diving centers instruct their guides to brief the divers and report to management when things like mentioned repeatedly occur.
In the worst cases these divers should be forbidden to dive and report to colleague diving centers in the area.

In the end I believe it is mostly the responsibility of the dive operators to guard the marine environment since they offer the opportunity to dive.

In Topic: Kuala Lumpur - U/W Photo Gear???

Hey All - anyone know of any shop(s) in KL that specialize in U/W photo gear? Looking for anyone that might stock Sea&Sea, Canon, or Fishyeye products. Aside from what I found with Google, I'm just wondering if anyone has any firsthand knowledge specifically related to KL.


I will be in KL next week and I will have a look around for you...

A good idea since the currents around Komodo can be ripping. If you get separated you will drift off to Australia ^_^ Don't forget to bring a reef hook.

Australia is nice this time of the year... ^_^
