In Topic: Shooting permits: Why it's important to have them.

Same goes for photographing in the US. For example, photographing seaturtles, such such leatherbacks, greens and hawksbills, require permits, and they are very hard to get. I see people photograph them all the time, as were Ilive is prime nesting for those 3 species. However, it is not legal to photograph them without permit and I have seen one "very big name" production shut down due to them showing up to photograph permits thinking it will not be a problem, they will just get a permit on the fly based on who they are and what they do.

Nesting or in the ocean? Never heard of requirement for photos of turtles in the ocean, but Nesting is of course, different.

In Topic: Ikelite Optical converter for DS Strobes

Way to revive a several year old thread! I believe the difference is one is designed to have a fiber optic cord installed and the other is more of an open window for cord less sync. I asked them to modify the original so it could be used more like the EV manual controller for slave strobes at great distance in caves and was glad to see them deliver! But I still have s stockpile of the old controllers and haven't needed to upgrade yet.

You should use brush to reduce exposure all along the top to eliminate the fuzzy back scatter. Nice shot!!

I really liked birds. I last went during off season and they spent about 8 hours in the water with only 4 people on the boat, while we watched other operators make two trips! I really loved their customer service.

Flashes weren't a problem then but again, small group in off season and I was the only one with a camera.
