  1. I just finished watching some of the videos from the wetpixel 2006 bahamas trip...the one clip of the tiger mouthing the camera...yeesh...I would've seriously crapped myself! Nerves of steel!
  2. Eric, Grazis on your pages in "Nature's Best." I was leafing through at B&N the other day and to my surpise as I flipped the first page, the screaming turtle in an HP ad. As I looked further, there it was again in the "animal antics" section...and another shot of your "Great Hammerhead" in another section. Nice! Pete
  3. They could do it if the manufacturers could agree on it. That's how the MIDI standard was developed in 81 or 82, allowing synthesizers from any company to "talk to one another and speak the same language."
  4. Yeah, living/diving in Grand Caymen day after day....rough life! Nice job on the train, Mike.
  5. I believe that's a tarsier monkey. They're one of the visitor attractions also if you go to Bohol in the Philippines. I've always wanted to see one of those and a pygmy marmoset in the wild.
  6. Libel Shmybel. I've a sneaking suspicion who it might be. After googling the supposed guy's name and sardines...I found the proposed dated for the episode to air on Animal Planet: Premieres Wednesday, August 10, at 9 p.m. EST. If anything, it'll allow you to relive some of the experience...hehehe
  7. I'm still curious as to which animal planet host turned out ot be a wuss. Love the dolphin surf shots....nature at its finest!
  8. I know digital is starting to be accepted more and more in the stock and print collateral but in the same breath I still see some publishers refusing to embrace it even if you had something like a 20D or D70 outputting 300ppi images. Is this just the stock company or the magazine's preference or is there any actual logic behind it? I mean obviously these cameras can hold their own and have been published before (i remember a D100 being used for a Nat'l Geo article on fighter jets awhile back) so I'm wondering what the bottleneck is here? -Pete
  9. It's so commonplace in all aspects of travel ads....I've seen so many brochures for Ft Lauderdale or Miami where the shots look like they were taken from micronesia or the caribbean....pool water clarity. I lived in that area for about 17 yrs and while there are places that are clear...I've never seen the ocean from the beach THAT clear. Another funny one...living in NYC and visiting any of the ski/snowboardshops....look at the brochures for many of the ski slopes...you can tell that a lot of the stock was taken out west as we rarely if ever have thick powder like that....i guess the hard-packed snow/ice isn't as pretty...heh. I would never trust a brochure by itself anyway (it amazes me that anyone would)...there are enough trip reports and pictures of the various dive locales online...a little research will get you the info you need. That being said, I wonder if anyone here or over at scubadiving.com has ever run into that whole "Come to hotel paradise with 5-star amenities" then gotten there and found a nipa hut with no toilet and a broken fan. -Pete
  10. Not necessarily underwater, but after perusing his DSLR Handbook, I was pretty inspired by Andy Rouse's wildlife photography.
  11. Forgive me as I don't own a housing and this may be a naive question, but after looking at snappy's pic of how the sync cord connector butts up against the regulator....wouldn't it be possible to develop an alternate L-shaped connector (or use one if it already exists) so it wouldn't be sticking straight out? This would be similar to what guitar players use to patch effects pedals. That would allow you to get to the viewfinder easier. Short end of the "L" goes into the housing and the long end leads the cord out to one side.
  12. Then of course there's the classic Simpsons episode where Lisa doesn't want to get braces so the dentist pulls out "The Big Book of British Smiles" to convince her.
  13. Nice work, both in color and composition. What rig are you shooting with?
  14. Or, if you use Firefox, just download Sage.
