  1. Please, I need your help!

    I'm about to publish a story about Sipadan..

    I was there two years ago and I would like to have information about the present situation....

    I have pictures of the pier and bungalows and I do not know which comment to add...


  2. Answer:

    1.- Yes, no problem..... unless you use a very heavy setup (let's say, a couple of Subtronic Mega Color). With a "normal" setup, yes, you can operate with just one hand....

    2.- No, at least in my case (I wear glasses)... I need to move my head slightly in order to see the full frame....

    Hope it helps.


  3. I've used both lenses, and even the Tamron 90 mm. IMHO, from an optical point of view I can see no difference between Nikon and Sigma. Even I would say that 105 Sigma handles better the very low light situations....

    But you should take into account two points: -at full extension, the Sigma is longer than the Nikon ; - the Sigma is a lot noisier than the Nikon, and sometimes scares fishes and critters...

    Concerning the Tamron, I believe that the new version is really very, very good... It's fast and clear...

    In any case, any of the three lenses is good enough for uw photography.



  4. Hi

    Two pictures and three RAW converters, Photoshop CS2, Nikon Capture and Raw Shooter Essentials 2005....

    and different results.

    Just take a look..


    ...where the first is with Photoshop CS2, _DSC2b596 is with Nikon Capture and _DSC 2c is with Raw Shooter .... and every one looks diferent than the others... More washed out with Photoshop, more contrast with Capture and more obscure with Shooter

    Could someone tell me why?


    BTW.- I put the pics as opened in every program and saved in jpg. with no manipulation whatsoever.




  5. Hi

    I'm not lucky with the harlequin shrimps.... I like them a lot, but I've never seen one (just the pics...).

    I've just finished a trip to Milne Bay (good diving, BTW), but no harlequin shrimps...

    I've been in a lot of those places where some of you, lucky boys, have found the harlequin shrimps (Bali, Raja Empat, Wakatobi, Manado etc...), buy no luck so far....

    Now, I'm leaving for Truk in a couple of weeks, but I believe that Truk is not the best place for those elusive shrimps...

    So, just curious, could you (the lucky guys) tell me where have you found the harlquin shrimps?



  6. Hi

    I would like to buy a Macromate for my Hugyfot flat port... :) But Hugyfot is not in their list.... So, I would like to know the measure of the outer circumference of the following flat ports:






    Maybe I can use one of the macromates offered for those brands... :)

    Hugyfot's flat port external circumference is 37,5cm (14,57 inches)


    BTW.- I already sent an e-mail to Basckscatter with no answer so far.



    PS.- I've just got an answer... They say: there isn't any model for Hugyfot. I know, but I want to know if I can use any other model (making some DIY...)
