Firstly thankyou for you help. Got some great results from Sipadan and also visited Si Amile for some gr8 macro shots - will post soon!

Have a real problem, just got to the Similan Islands put the D7000 together with the DS161 and no flash when taking picture. The DS161 is working well under movie light and SOS battery rest. The camera has been reset on user settings, then white balance set to auto, flash is set to TTL with the lightening bolt showing on the viewer, flash sync speed 1/250 and shutter speed 1/60, mode is set to programmed/ aperture priority/ manual, metering set to spot, focus set to spot and focusing is set to AF-A. Any reason you can think of for the flash not syncing and firing?

I have exhausted the manual for an answer:(

Now we are gettting technical, however very useful so thank you. I am printing out your comments for reference, however would hope to run on going for white balance auto setting, but I have 2 options Auto1 normal or Auto2 keep warm lighting colours.

Am I corrrect in assuming Auto2 would be best choice?

Any experience?

We just missed each other, I was there 8th November.

Great pictures with some stunning macros, the ribbon eel came out a treat to name but one. Have yet to see Mandarin fish but hopefully this time. Can you please advise on the macro photos shooting with the 60 mm lens, generally did you use auto or manual white balance to produce the crystal clear water or did you lightroom it after?

Didn't realise there were so many colourful critters in NSW either :B):

I did 10 dives off Sipadan last October and it was fantastic. I can highly recommend it. So much to photograph! I was shooting with my D300 at the time (see the photos in my dive log) and only housed my D7000 after returning.
