Hi all,

 

A short 5min video about diving in Kubu, Amed, Tulamben and Nusa Penida.

I hope you will enjoy it, I am especially happy about the pygmy seahorse shot at 1:45, took me quite a few dives to get those few seconds! :)

 

All the best, Morten


Experiences with the Apeks WTX-D18 wing?

24 February 2014 - 03:08 AM

Hi gang! 

 

I am looking at exchanging my good old 32lb OMS wing for something smaller and more streamlined. 

 

I have been looking at the 18lb travelwing from Apeks, does anyone have any experience with it and do you know if it will fit the standard aluminum OMS plate?

Or do you have any other recommendations for a wing which is smaller than 20lb? 

 

As always your help is much appreciated! :)

Lens choice for Maldivian current diving

07 November 2013 - 04:32 AM

Hi all wetpixelers!

 

I am going to go on my first ever trip to the Maldives (liveaboard heading down deep south), the name of the game is sharks and currents.

 

The thing I am wondering is which lenses to use on strong current channel dives with sharks/eagle rays etc?

I would like to use my Tokina10-17 behind my minidome but I am worried it might be too wide?

 

Also, does it make sense to bring strobes on those dives, we will be going +40m so on one hand it would be nice, if the animals do not come that close then I will leave the strobes on the boat as I want to minimize my drag in the current.

 

For those of you who have done this type of diving any other photographic advice would be much appreciated as well! 

 

I use a canon 7D (1.6 sensor) 

 

Best regards, Morten

The Siddhartha Dive Resort & Spa in Bali is now taking entries from the year-long Indonesian shootout competition.

 

The fact that we now have the "Participating Dive Operator" status means that we are one of a small group of dive-operators with whom you can be part of one of the worlds biggest photo competitions, with cash prizes of over 200.000 us$.

 

The best thing is, the competition is free, all you have to do is to dive with us here at our award winning resort and you will automatically be entitled to enter your images.   

 

Last competition entry is on the 5'th December 2013. 

 

 

Happy Shooting! :)

Options for mounting wetlenses on Aquatica 7D macro-port

05 April 2013 - 04:55 AM

Hi gang! 

 

So, I have these two 67mm diopters lying around from when I did a lot of compact photos, and I would like to use them for my Aquatica 7D housing, I have the macro port which allows for manual focus, and I already have the 100mm and 60mm. 

 

I have seen that aquatica has an Adapter available, but for me its price wise, a bit over the top, anyone know of cheaper solutions?

 

Or did anyone Macyver something?

 

Any ideas would be much appreciated!
