  13. I am down south in Sanur. So if you are staying before or after the trip for a night down south then that works. Or, I may be up that way at some point during that time, not sure. Will let you know if I do. The guides at Seraya are great and know the reefs and critter sites exceedingly well. No worries about staying there, you will have a good time.
  14. Lol.. Joe, why didn't you tell me you were coming to Bali? My guides would have taken great care of you... Let me know when you are here, would be good to meet up
  15. Good report, what is the name of the dive centre? I don't see that listed

  17. Hav a look or contact Doug Sloss of underwaterlightroom. He and his wife Lorenza offer a lot of expertise on all Adobe products and they do both workshops as well as one to one stuff. They also have lots of products available with tips specifically aimed at underwater photography and Adobe
  18. I would say get the TG5 or a used TG4, should be easy to find one of those. Then, no need for a strobe at first if that is above your budget, but do get a decent light such as a FIX Neo to get better colour from the TG. It takes amazing macro in the microscope mode
  19. since they put in the bridge its not as bad as it used to be. Maybe 35 mins from the airport to Swiss Bel
  20. As you are in Singapore I would suggest a visit over to David and Sanah at Scubacam Singapore. Bring your housing and camera with all lenses with you, they can help you get the right lenses and ports setup for a Nauticam system. Looking at the port you currently have, you can't add an additional macro diopter to it as there is no threads on it. Which lenses do you have? Just the one? You may need a second "macro" lens and port to achieve what you are after
