  1. as a health care professional as well as a diver, this is good news both as a conservation issue as well as to publicize a public health concern. http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20080130/ap_on_...dolphin_mercury this may be a good approach against the shark fin industry as well.
  2. i have one. it is ok. the dynamic range is great for topside stuff. underwater i am so used to my d200, i keep getting my controls screwed up. Besides, the three color histogram on the d200 is so much better than the S5. I hate having to scroll thru.
  3. i used the subal d200 housing with dual inon z240 and s&s ttl converter. it works well. I think i still have the converter. If you are interested, i am willing to part with it.
  4. Sam. you are awesome Let me know when you are done. I would like one!
  5. i agree. love that first shot. well done.
  6. Nice! Wow! sunballs........ thanks for the report Eric.
  7. damn, i categorized one of my images wrong. unrestricted vs traditional. o well I agree, it would be nice to clarify the "color" portion of the rules. I was working on my pix last minute so didn't have time to ask.
  8. Nick!!! How are you doing mate! How's my (your) D100 housing? I have two DS125 that I am selling that are very familiar with that housing. Let me know if you are interested. I also have a charger and some extras. -Larry
  9. I was just there in September. I had two 60 pound check in bags, plus one peli 1510 and a filled computreker. I managed without a problem, but i definitely recommend checking their website before you go to see if they have made any changes to their weight restrictions. Air Pacific is fine. 10 hours from LAX to Nadi is not bad. have fun.
  10. I think my friend's reaction says this best. For the last couple of years I have been telling her about shark-finning, the plight of the whales and turtles. No real reaction. When she saw the footage of the dolphins on national TV, she cried. It was because "dolphins are so cute". I'm glad the dolphin hunt is getting some limelight, but it seems that joe-public doesn't care.
  11. Bart thanks for sharing. How successful are these dynamite fishermen in obtaining the fish? From your pixs, there are many fish dead on the bottom, but were there many at the surface for these "fishermen" to pick up? Besides destructive, it seems incredibly low yield.
  12. just picked up my macbook pro 15" on Friday. They will probably announce a new laptop soon, especially since i just bought mine. But seriously, since they are about to announce Leopard, they are probably going to up the processor and other stuff. O well, i needed it because my thinkpad was dying.
  13. i didn't realize that salt is left behind when it dries, and with high humidity it will absorb moisture that will trigger the alarm. That is exactly what happened to me in Sipadan. I am going to try to soak the contacts in fresh water, hopefully it will clean out the salts. Any other suggestions? Dilute vinegar?
  14. I have had that problem with my Subal D200 housing. It was a problem in the Philippines. Sent it to Fred at UWphototech. They checked it out. No problems. Went diving in Sipadan. The light started blinking once i got there. I think it is the humidity of the location. So, now I have fixed the problem permanently - no battery, no blinking. I think it is a design problem. I will try it again once i get home to see if i can fix it.
