When I was working on Nai'a, Gerry Allen visited and gave a talk about fishes. He said that many fishes in Fiji have more yellow on them than the same species in other areas, and nobody really knows why. Knowing this can help identify fishes from Fiji. For example fish ID books might show this species from other areas, without that yellow on the dorsal fin.

In Topic: Macro Video of Saddleback Clownfish Eggs in Anilao

Well, just got back from Anilao and actually dove at Bethlehem. Through out my dive, the dive master did find 2 patches of clownfish eggs, but they're behind the coral or deep inside, where I couldn't get a steady shoot of the eggs. My footage turned out shaky since I don't have any place to get down and anchor myself. You're lucky!


I was there on 21st March again and found the same anemone. There was a new patch of eggs in exactly the same place, in front of the anemone, and it's extremely accessible. However the eyes had not yet started to develop.

I'm sorry, I should have studied the lens before I asked my daft question. I was under the mistaken impression that the lens had a conventional manual focus ring.


I'm interested to know how easy/difficult fine focus is with this gear.

thetrickster, how is the gearing for manual focus? How many full turns of the knob does it require to move across the full range of focus?

Lol Peter.


Thanks Col. I was using Natural, -1, -2, -3, 0, 0. 0-255. iResolution standard. But what you see here has been changed a lot in post.


I'm going to turn off iResolution for my next trip, and probably reduce the contrast more.
