Topics I've Started

NeedID: small white crab with unusual carpace, Aethra sp?

31 January 2014 - 11:39 PM

My partner found this small crab while doing a species survey at Rottnest Island, Western Australia (Indian Ocean).

Found in a rock pool.

 

Closest match I can find is Aethra edentate Edmondson..

 

Cheers, Xander

Has anyone experience with UFL-M150 ZM80 on the RX100?

24 September 2013 - 07:08 PM

The Inon UFL-M150 ZM80 (Inon micro fish eye lens) does not work properly on my RX100 in Nauticam housing. 

I loved using this lens with my old S95, but upgraded to RX100.

 

Anyone has any tips/ideas/knowledge?

 

Cheers, Xander


RX100 - Esperance/Swan River Western Australia 2013

30 April 2013 - 08:35 PM

Here are some photos from the last months with the Sony RX100 in Nauticam housing, which are both great!

Lenses used: FIX UWL-04 wide angle and double UCL-165 macro.

2x INON S2000 strobes.

 

First ones are in Esperance, Western Australia. I rented gear to find my first Leafy Seadragon and was lucky in 'Lucky Bay'.

 

Other ones are taken in the river/estuary in Perth, Western Australia; the Swan river.

 

Cheers, Xander

Swan River, Western Australia (RX100)

13 February 2013 - 04:42 PM

Hi everyone

I thought I would make a topic about the river system/estuary here in Perth.
The visibility is very bad, with a lot of particles in the water, and a lot of people here call it 'dirty'.

Still I think you can find a lot of beauty here, especially in the shallows with low sun.
The watercolour changes throughout the year, from yellow brown to fluorescent green, and in high summer it almost looks like the famous jellyfish lake in Palau because of the huge jellyfish populations.
I have encountered dolphins, prickly leatherjackets and seahorses are not rare! Sometimes you can see 10/20 a time if you look for them.



Here is a selection of photos from the last 2 years, Cheers!
Xander
