In Topic: Malaria

At our clinic we have a recognized expert travel doctor.

You tell her where your going and she tells you which drug to take.

I myself have prescribe doxycycline a number of times.
It can cause an allergic reaction to sun exposure. However if your not nursing or under 14 it is safe for most people.

In Topic: GX7 vs OMD series under water

04 July 2014 - 08:52 AM

I have the GX7 and Nauticam housing.

Great combo. I think every bit as good as my old D300 and Subal housing.

In particular the AF underwater is very good and auto white balance seems very good. No shutter lag I can notice.

Can't think of anything on the GX7 that the Nauticam controls don't allow you to do.

I found the LCD better to use than the EVF. Mostly as you can hold the camera a arms length so as not to scare your subject. I was going to get the magnified viewfinder for Nauticam, but realized that using the LCD was a better choice underwater.

In Topic: Diving in Alor/Komodo - How strong are the currents?

23 June 2014 - 01:40 PM

There is a dive site, off of Komodo, I believe called dirty rock. The current rips by there as strong as I've ever dived in.

Generally I remember the diving off of Komodo to be fairly easy.

In Topic: Which wide angle lens to get first?

16 June 2014 - 06:23 PM

I have the 7-14 and the 8 mm.

I almost always use the 7-14.

Excellent lens.

I have on my GX7 housing. I think it is great. Cheap for the peace of mind it gives.
