Are you allow to use strobes to photograph the sharks ?

I read somewhere that the mexican authorities banned the use of strobes at Guadalupe , it's that true ?

Thanks for the report and glad to hear that gws are in healthy numbers there

In Topic: Macro lens for Raja Ampat liveaboard?

My recommendation take both with you . I shoot a cropped sensor Nikon camera with the 105mm and 60 mm macro lenses , but your options are very similar.

The 60 is great for things that allows you to get close , especially in places that the vis is not too good ( like muck dive sites ) and 100mm is the choice for subjects that don't allow you to get close like some gobies , pigmy seahorses ,etc. I've been to Raja Ampat twice and i used more often the 60mm than the 105mm but some shoots are impossible without the 105mm

Extra magnification is a must, like the macromate or subsee wet diopters .

I think same concept applies for video .

Happy shooting

Interesting to hear you say that the 10.5 is sharper..
 
thanks

That's only my appreciation , i didn't made any test or side by side compare. But anyway if any difference , it's minimal.
