Question about Sipadan

18 June 2006 - 11:35 PM

Question to those of you that have been diving lately around Sipadan...
The well known dropoff pier, is still there or has been destroyed?
And all the bungalows and other resort buildings, are there although empty or have been demolished?
Thanks

More about RAW converters

28 October 2005 - 01:24 PM

Hi
Two pictures and three RAW converters, Photoshop CS2, Nikon Capture and Raw Shooter Essentials 2005....
and different results.
Just take a look..

...where the first is with Photoshop CS2, _DSC2b596 is with Nikon Capture and _DSC 2c is with Raw Shooter .... and every one looks diferent than the others... More washed out with Photoshop, more contrast with Capture and more obscure with Shooter
Could someone tell me why?

BTW.- I put the pics as opened in every program and saved in jpg. with no manipulation whatsoever.

About harlequin shrimp

23 October 2005 - 01:12 AM

Hi
I'm not lucky with the harlequin shrimps.... I like them a lot, but I've never seen one (just the pics...).
I've just finished a trip to Milne Bay (good diving, BTW), but no harlequin shrimps...
I've been in a lot of those places where some of you, lucky boys, have found the harlequin shrimps (Bali, Raja Empat, Wakatobi, Manado etc...), buy no luck so far....
Now, I'm leaving for Truk in a couple of weeks, but I believe that Truk is not the best place for those elusive shrimps...
So, just curious, could you (the lucky guys) tell me where have you found the harlquin shrimps?
Thanks

Macromate size

23 September 2005 - 01:16 PM

Hi
I would like to buy a Macromate for my Hugyfot flat port... :) But Hugyfot is not in their list.... So, I would like to know the measure of the outer circumference of the following flat ports:
-Subal
-Seacam
-Aquatica
-Sea&Sea

Maybe I can use one of the macromates offered for those brands... :)
Hugyfot's flat port external circumference is 37,5cm (14,57 inches)

BTW.- I already sent an e-mail to Basckscatter with no answer so far.
Thanks
Matetes
PS.- I've just got an answer... They say: there isn't any model for Hugyfot. I know, but I want to know if I can use any other model (making some DIY...)
