Should be a great trip!



Why? There's not much left, and not so many fish...

... and flying in to Port Sudan can be a nightmare.


However, the Umbria is still a great dive and the Sudanese reefs are less damaged than those near to the Egyptian resorts (although, even there, there are gems).

Well, despite what has been said, I thought the bumpheads the stars of this collection!

The bigger the dome, the better with this lens. I have used it for sharks and other big animals: it's not so good for reef scenes and wrecks.

where is this tribolube 71 available from? to buy


Tribolube 71 is oxygen-safe. Great for Nitrox regulators, but unnecessary for photographic gear, unless you are in saturation...


Molykote FS1292 is sold by Cameras Underwater, amongst others.


Neither are what you would call cheap...


... but a tube of FS1292 will last for several years of intense photography.
