Komodo & Bali

04 April 2013 - 02:14 AM

So I am half way through my trip of Indo,

 

Been to Komodo and now diving round Bali, it has been amazing so far and still 2 more weeks left!

 

I have lots and lots of shots to choose from which I like but here are a selection that I quite like....impossible to select though!

Maldives - Dhaalu Atoll

05 March 2013 - 07:53 AM

Hi Guys,

 

So had my SLR about 6 months and recently got my underwater setup in the last 4 weeks,

 

Using a 7D, NA-7D, Tokina 10-17mm with Zen mini dome, 100mm Macro and dual Inon Z240's,

 

I work on Dhaalu Atoll, just posting some pictures for feedback basically,

 

I am still on the learning curve but am quite pleased with results thus far....

 

These are the recent WA shots,

First DSLR Outing

01 February 2013 - 04:41 AM

Hi Guys,

So let me paint the picture for you:
  • Used a G10, 2 strobes and stacked macro lenses for around 3 years all on manual
  • Now upgraded to the 7D with the NA-7D, two Z240's, flat port, zen mini dome
  • Today was my first venture under with the new gear, only arrived 2 days ago
  • Was very worried about the steep learning curve involved however I am quite pleased with results....opinions?
  • I didn't try anything creative today (bokeh etc.), just getting used to how the system works, using everything on manual again
  • I am SOO SOO HAPPY i made the jump to DSLR, so much fun & flexibility with lighting
  • Today was with the 100m macro
  • Still need to get used to strobe positioning to get rid of backscatter
  • LOVE LOVE LOVE the 100mm for fish shots!!
  • Here are a few pics below, please go to for more from today

Any comments are very welcome,

Thanks in advance,

Kenko 1.4 TC...but which one!

15 January 2013 - 10:26 PM

Hi everyone,

Ok so a quick question,

I would like to use a TC with my 10-17 tokina to do WAM, however which TC do I get,

I am looking at the kenkos but there are a couple of different types from them;

1) 1.4 teleplus pro 300 DGX?

2) 1.4 AF MC4 DGX?

I am using a 7D...

Can anyone help or tell me the difference?

Thanks,

Luke

Frogfish ID!!!?

05 January 2013 - 09:34 PM

Unfortunately the photo's aren't great as on the dive i didn't have my camera and had to flag down the only other dive pair to get a photo of it as I had never seen it before.

This little guy was in Sogod Bay, Philippines. About 10cm long. I have asked many different knowledgable frogfish people but we have all drawn a blank.....maybe just a Painted...the second dorsal spine is very painted 'like'

Has anyone seen this before?
