In Topic: Camera Housings in hand luggage

Singapore Air weighed my carry-on at LAX and it was well past the 7kg limit a few months ago so we had to buy a laptop bag to cross-load some stuff. End result same stuff was carried on, but took up even more space in the bins. 

 

On the flights back it wasn't weighed, but I had my housing and strobes in checked bags -- I was a bit nervous about that, but it all made it home fine.

In Topic: Nikon 105vr manual vs auto focus

I agree...moving around once focus is locked is critical, and another reason I use AE-L set up to back-button focus (AF=On) to prevent an accidental half-press of shutter kicking in the AF.

 

I think a magnifying viewfinder is also very important, at least for someone with 40yr old eyes! I have the 45-degree, and while it was a bit of a challenge to get used to it, I just cant see tiny critters well enough without it.

 

 

BTW: I couldn't believe surge was still rocking down at 90fsw in Lembeh! 


In Topic: Best lens to start with

I have the Tokina 10-17 with the Zen 100mm dome, very nice combo for WA. It focuses very close so you can do some CFWA as well. It's a very nice lens.
