Koh Tao Nian Rhapsody, Fun Diving on Koh Tao, Thailand

Hi all,
I got this link emailed to me.
It worth a look if you haven't seen it already.

The Underwater Photographer

Does anyone know if this book is available as an ebook?
I was thinking it would be great to have on the laptop as a point of reference and ideas, while away on trips. It would save dragging the 500 page beast along!

Cheers,
Andy.

Seahorn snoot with Inon Z240

08 June 2011 - 03:22 AM

Hi,

Wondered if anybody was using a Seahorn snoot with an Inon Z240?. If so are you having the same problem as me?
The problem is the method of attachment seems pretty poor. You stick 3 pieces of velcro to the strobe, butt the snoot up to the strobe. Then marry the velcro on the snoot to the strobe velcro and away you go! It took about two dives to fail. Either the velcro comes apart or looses adhesion to the strobe. Surely it would have been simple to make the snoot diameter a little wider than the strobe so that it fit more securely? As anybody had similar problems and come up with a solution? I'm happy with the snoot generally it just seems poorly thought out.
I did notice on Youtube that Martin Edge was using what looked like the same snoot but with a nice modification. Looks like the snoot (link)
If anyone has more info or idea's I'd be grateful.

Thanks,
Andy.

A few shots from the Maldives.

03 December 2010 - 06:04 AM

Hi all,

I'm posting a few shots taken on a recent trip to the Maldives. This was my first time in the water using two inon's with my second Z240 being added recently. It was also my first trip with my new 60mm macro Nikkor.
The water was quite turbid throughout the trip, so all but three dives where with the 60mil. I did make an exception for the Manta's with the Tokina 10-17.
I got totally absorbed with looking for small critters and by the end of the week, I was completely hooked on macro. I cant wait to get a 105 and Subsee..........

Please take a look. Any feedback, comments would be welcome.

Cheers Andy.

Focusing lights! Your thoughts.

14 September 2010 - 12:45 PM

Hi,
I'd like your advice on focusing lights.
I've been following a topic on manual v auto focus macro ports. Seems most users favour AF ports and focus lights.
My question is, if you use this method. Which focus lights do you favour and why?

Cheers Andy.
