  1. Appears to be Tenellia sp. (known as Cuthona) similar to the photos found at http://www.underwaterkwaj.com/nudi/eolids/e639.htm.
  2. You say the D7500 has no back focus button, but it appears to have the same AE-L/AF-L button as the D7200 which can be programmed for back button focusing as explained here. Am I missing something?
  3. I've flown EVA a couple of times between Seattle and Manila via Elite Class and once via Economy. Regarding the amount of legroom, I'd compare it to an Emergency Exit row in Economy. The times I flew Elite, it was about $200-$300 more for the round trip ticket in Elite vs. Economy. The time I flew Economy, it was close to double to fly in Elite, which just wasn't worth it to me. I ended up scoring an Exit row each way between Seattle and Taipei so I had equivalent legroom without having to pay. I'm 6' 0", by the way.
  4. Keep in mind that the species numbers for undescribed species have no scientific significance. XXX sp. 2 simply means that for the given resource (book, website, etc.), the author had one undescribed XXX listed previously. The numbers simply differentiate the given species from other undescribed species of the same genus. For example, my Hypselodoris sp. 2 found here is the same as what Erwin Kohler calls Hypselodoris sp. 9 here and what is called Hypselodoris sp. 23 in Nudibranch & Sea Slug Identification -- Indo-Pacific. They're all the same species and can simply be referred to as Hypselodoris sp. when identifying a new photo. As for the photo above, it is indeed Favorinus sp.
  5. Thanks, glad you found it of use!
  6. This is actually an anemone, Alicia sp. See a similar specimen here.
  7. This afternoon, I received a Saga Trio lens which allows for 0, +5, +10 and +15 magnification. Having never shot with a wet diopter before, I'm wondering if there's any way to keep track of which photos on a given dive are shot with the diopter. Obviously the diopter info won't show up in the Exif since the camera has no way of knowing it's there. Seems to me that simply trying to make a mental note would be problematic given the the likelihood of shooting hundreds of photos over the course of a day. Any suggestions or methods that work for those of you using a wet diopter on some of your photos but not others? Thanks!
  8. Based on the fact that the ports I purchased in 1995 for my Nikon N90s still fit the housing for my Nikon D7200, I would imagine the answer is yes but a quick email to Ikelite -- ikelite@ikelite.com -- would confirm this.
  9. Probably doesn't matter since you already bought some, but I have a container of Trident Silicone Grease that's lasted for years and years.
  10. 1. Impossible to tell from this angle, but possibly Pleurobranchus forskalii, similar to https://www.flickr.com/photos/8723238@N07/4722686790/in/photolist-awMFsx-fYaWYz-ihFDnQ-ekFViH-89p5od-BwMM39-8ck1fj-dr4Yax-dXDDLp-jX3ren-zheZt4-G5dCdh-Q6h4Qk 2. I don't have the REEF book, but this is likely Hypselodoris sp. 7 in Nudibranch & Sea Slug Identification - Indo-Pacific 3. Plakobranchus sp., similar to https://www.flickr.com/photos/8723238@N07/23581272379/in/photolist-AcXbjm-dr59L3-awMKhM-jX5ZQ1-ekMF6q-CjJFmN-fYaA1f-3PsB41-BwMQdY-ihFugq-d6AVom-jX4Qir-dr5abL-awQrwA-ekFVtP-BVNbHH-ihFFwj-jX3NUD-dr59VE-PGxgSd-QdbVbu-NZ6nXm 4. Phyllodesmium pinnatum, similar to https://www.flickr.com/photos/8723238@N07/8755441767/in/photolist-BwMov5-ekFVNx-ekFVQg-jX7tQN-ihFAXE 5. Phyllodesmium pinnatum 6. Eubranchus mandapamensis, similar to https://www.flickr.com/photos/8723238@N07/9824441913/in/photolist-C39aLs-dr2d9s-ekMpVy-fY9Qix-ihCKru-jX5iAn-avjFam-d6xLoG-awQeuL-zdJgeS-GRsfu7-Q8LCZ3
  11. Phyllidiopsis shireenae Asteronotus hepaticus Chromodoris lochi Chromodoris lochi Glossodoris pallida Phyllidia ocellata Phyllidia coelestis Phyllidiella pustulosa Phyllidia coelestis Probably Phyllidia picta
  12. I just came across an announcement on Nikon's website about launch events for the D5 and D500 to be held in various cities throughout the U.S., beginning the second week of February and going into early March. It appears you need to contact your preferred dealer to confirm attendance. Here is the website with a list of all the participating dealers - http://www.nikonusa.com/en/learn-and-explore/events/d5-d500/index.page From the announcement: Come experience the future of DSLR performance. You’re invited to join us at select Nikon dealers nationwide and be among the first to experience Nikon’s thrilling new flagships, the D5 and D500. These game-changing DSLRs introduce a new era of speed, accuracy, image quality, video capabilities and low-light performance. Test drive the cameras, speak with Nikon product experts, dealer staff, fellow photographers and more. Seating is limited at each event, so don’t miss out! First 50 attendees through the door will receive a special gift exclusive to this event!
  13. For the past couple of days since Nikon announced the D500 (and D5), I've been hoping to view some sample photos with Exif data included. While I've yet to find any such photos for the D500, I came across an album on Flickr that includes 8 samples from the D5, with full Exif data included. The photos range from ISO 200-6400. For what it's worth... https://www.flickr.com/photos/nikonphotostream/sets/72157662533087729
  14. You guys were definitely on the right track. After doing some additional research, I was able to figure it out. It's a Longfin Waspfish (Apistus carinatus). Here's a link to a very similar specimen - http://www.poppe-images.com/?t=17&photoid=947474. Thanks for your assistance!
  15. I'd appreciate help identifying a fish I photographed on a recent trip to Anilao. It was rather small, in the neighborhood of 2 inches or so, and was found at a depth of about 30 ft. on a night dive. Thanks!
