What camera are you planning to use it with?

I've moved this topic into the SLR forum...


I guess the crucial question should also be, will the lens work underwater? It will probably need a big dome...



In Topic: Shrimp ID?

@bmorescuba: The claws ID seems definitive..


Thank you all for the IDs!


@trimix125. The majority of images of P. brevicapalis that I can find show a series of purple rings on the claws. Does the female have different coloration?


@sinetwo. Your top image looks like a bubble coral shrimp (Vir philippinensis).The bottom one looks like my guy!


I have an image of one in a magnificent anemone:

I guess that my first image shows atypical habitat?


I should have said that both of these images are from Lembeh.


Thank you everyone!



In Topic: Full Circle Fisheye: Yes or No?

Just to get the ball rolling...


I'm typically not a great fan of full circle images.

To me, the (typically) black negative space detracts from the subject. In effect almost half the frame...is the frame! 


Whilst there are some subjects that do lend themselves to this type of effect, this same subject often look equally stunning when shot with a conventional fisheye.

Hi Armin,


It should be fine with the Tokina 10-17mm, although the lens is not a full frame lens. 


Sadly the 17-40mm will probably be "challenged." The bigger the dome the better with rectilinear lenses. 


Of course, if you are shooting big animal sin blue water, the corner sharpness will not make a huge difference :)
