Large Stingray ID required

11 March 2014 - 04:48 AM

Hi Folks,


Anyone any good at IDing stingrays? This biggy was almost 2m across, shot back in 2002ish I think in the Gulf of Masirah, Oman. Having filed it away and not thought much about it, I then saw a doco about Mozambique, saying this was the first time Small-Eyed Stingrays (Dasyatis microps) had every been filmed at that this was the only place they'd ever been seen alive. Of course, my one is probably just something different and common as muck......


Anyway here is the video I shot in Oman:



Compare with a video from Mozambique:



This was not the only one we saw, there were several at the surface, often shadowed by a smaller ray (male following a female?) and I've seen them on several occasions.

Red Sea Reef in 3D on youtube

Hi All,


I've been experimenting with low budget 3D underwater for a while. Here's a compilation on youtube:



It suffers from the usual youtube compression problems. I'm interested to see how it works for people with 3D displays or TVs. I found I had to tick the 'swap left and right' box as well as selecting the appropriate 3D display type. best at 1080 obviously.


Feedback welcome. I know there are a few slightly problematic shots in there.
