In Topic: Malaria

20 August 2014 - 10:14 PM

AFAIK, malarone is not the treatment upon contraction of malaria (I got ~600 mosquito bites in the Amazon thinking that it did and thus didn't bother covering up, haha) but I think it helps in the beginning?

I'm not sure, really - this is why you pay a professional to advise you rather than a bunch of nerds :D

Or you could look at it this way - roll the dice! But as I get older and have more people (Well, it's been my girlfriend for the past ~5 years) to care about the more I realise I don't want to say goodbye so it's perhaps worth it to be safe and not be as cool.

Your chances are pretty slim, though...


In Topic: Hammerheads

I've seen hammerheads in one place and that was the Galapagos - not out at Wolf and Darwin but at Gordon's Rocks.

 

As far as I know, if you want hammerheads - Galapagos liveaboards and Cocos liveaboards are the best options but Mapelo sounds pretty epic.

 

You'd probably have a bit of luck in Isla de Coiba, too..  Or Komodo :o


In Topic: E-M5 set up!

23 June 2014 - 03:39 PM

How much closer are we talking, really?

 

On the E-M5 thread it actually looked like the 4.33" was sharper (In I think Doctor Mustard's duck phots?) than the 3.5"?

 

And when you say works fine - it works well? No difference in image quality between the 12-50mm port? And I thought the 12-50 port came with a 77mm-67mm ring?


In Topic: Packing Your Gear Securely/Safely and Why Have Integrated Weights If You Can...

Yeah, I was planning in putting my mask in its box.

I bought an SPG with a compass for your reasoning.

Fair call on the weight pockets being a pain - I tried my reach through the arm holes and grab the tank to swing onto my back trick with the pockets in.. tough!

I'll take a look at the weights in the pouches.

Thank you, all!
