  1. Hi Simon, There was no mention about copyright to the high res, only unedited original with EXIF date MAY be requested for authentication. Even if you resize the original, the EXIF data is still there. This is mainly to prevent participants from submitting someone else's photo! Actually most of us down here would kill to get ourselves published or advertised for free but I do see your point from the other side of the world, where there are many pros at work and legal issues to be considered. Just a note, what if a diving magazine sponsor wants to feature the winning image and need high res? Most of us would be so honored to be featured, especially on the cover! For pros who gets paid top dollars to do that, I don't think this is a contest for them. Morever this a Facebook event and the POTM is based on number of public votes ie "Like's" so the best photo may not necessarily win! Also participants may remove, resubmit their photo right up to closing date if they wish. There's nothing we can do about it. However we do need to use the submitted images to promote the contest, so we'll add in this clause: Scuba Symphony and prize sponsors may use submitted images (which are low res on Facebook anyway) to promote the current contest, as well as subsequent contest in the same format in the following year. That limits the usage of the images for a period of max. 2 years. Photo credit will be mentioned. Any further usage of the photo ( regardless low or high res) must be negotiated with the photographer directly. What do you think?
  2. Sounds good but I still prefer to leave it out for now. Someone may still find fault and/or may not be happy with that clause as well? Thanks anyway.
  3. Good point there! It's out first contest and we're still updating the T&C and prizes as they come in. We have very generous sponsors and some of them may wish to use the winning photo/s, mind you with full credits to the photographer. I think it's best that we take the clause out to avoid misunderstanding and we'll let the prize sponsor deal directly with the photographer then on the publishing rights. If there's anything else in the T&C that needs refinement, please by all means let us know. We appreciate any constructive input from anyone. Thanks for the hint!

  8. Available light performance is very good on the LX3 with the f2.0 Leica lens. All the videos I shot on the previous reply was with 10bar red filter, manual white balance and no video lights. I think the red filter from 10bar gives very saturated colours, the UrPro CY or Magic Filter reproduces more subtle, natural colours. Will try them on my next trip.
  9. I think the Canon Ixus shouldn't be compared to the LX3, perhaps the Canon G11 or S90 are closer match in terms of picture quality. Budget wise the Ixus combo is more economical but you'd probably be adding extra gizmos soon enough! Your money, your call.... Anyway, there hasn't been much discussed about the LX3 HD video capabilty here, I think it's not too bad at all! Here are some footage I took last year, sorry I had not time to edit them. The blue may be a bit saturated but can be easily tuned down in PP: LX3 underwater
  10. Some videos I shot in Sipadan March 2009 with the LX3, all unedited. Constructive comments are welcomed:
