Topics I've Started

Canon G1X Mark II

12 February 2014 - 07:24 AM

I'm wondering what peoples thoughts on this are:




I've been using smaller-sensor G series cameras for a while. It looks like this camera will fix the earlier G1X macro issue. And they are constantly comparing it to an SLR, so if it manages to fix the no TTL in manual problem, then this may be my next camera. That's my biggest complain with the current G series.


This seems like a nice step between the G series and the u4/3 cameras in terms of functionality. 

Philippines: Two nudies, a cowrie, and an urchin

... walked into a bar. No, actually they are the last things from my Philippines trip I can't identify.


This little guy is on some algae, but I can't find anything like him in my books

And this looks to me like a yellow-tipped phylodesium (briareum) but it doesn't have yellow tips.

Philippines crustaceans

These are all from either Moalboal or Dauin. Any help I can get identifying any of them would be appreciated. 


The little crab next to the mantis is what I'm trying to ID.

Need some help with Philippines fish

22 December 2013 - 09:48 AM

I recently took my first trip to the Philippines (and first trip to the Pacific with a camera). Doing the ID when I got home was nearly overwhelming. Here are the fish shots I couldn't identify. I'd greatly appreciate any help anyone can give. I suspect most of these are easy for those of you familiar with the area. I'll post inverts in a separate thread.
