  1. Romblon is nice , ive been there twice , but if your scared of getting macroed out you'll get microed in Romblon the stuff is smaller there , There are some nice reefs in Anilao thou !! Frank
  2. Good work Jesper , Nice meeting you and your girlfriend again ! Frank
  3. Never been there , but just got back from lembeh where i dive with Divers Lodge ( think this is the same resort ) I spoke to Rob the owner but also to some guides that have been diving there and the guides liked weda better than lembeh......
  4. Hi Ken, I just upgraded to a tttconverter/flash trigger mainly because i could't get the lighting right. Just for your understanding i have a hard time evaluating my pics underwater because of my eyesight. one of the reasons i got the D-500 was because of its focussing system. I used uit in macro mode for about 4 days and then drifted back to manual. It was producing oke images but i was not blown away. Never tested it for wide angle . It turned out that my problem was in the rechargeable batteries i was using. So in hindsight i would have never bought it. Kind regards , Frank
  5. I misunderstood u but tried it today , i could pull of a shot using only my right hand but wouldn't want to do a couple after one another, my hand started shaking because of the awkward grip so if your looking at shooting one-handed that would be a problem. Frank
  6. I have a Nauticam and very pleased with it. Ergonomics are great , back butten focus is with your thumb and release is with your finger , no problem Frank
  7. Hi Tim , Missed your post but there is : OFFT wich meets in Utrecht ones a month during the winter. Next meeting is 13 November see the website : http://www.offt.nl/ i dont know if the link is clickable but the adres is correct. There is a admission fee to overcome the cost of renting the place of €4,- Then there is Aquashot : http://www.aquashot.nl/ wich is founded by the NOB to stimulate the growth of the underwaterphotography ( and video ) in the Netherlands there are subdivisions ( regios) in wich people come together and evaluate and give positive criticism . Probably zuid-holland would be the one closest to you.Don't know if these are very active , i'm in Noord-brabant and we have a meeting end of next month Hope this is of help and feel free to write a pm if you need some help with the dutch websites Frank
  8. nice video and a great selection of critters. frank
  9. While i'm not phil , i use the nauticam 45 deg on my nauticam house , I review mij pics thru the viewfinder , never thru the back-screen , with my eye site its not realy a good option to look at the backscreen. You can change the window easy by yourself its locked in place by a o-ring as Phil writes one minute job , having said that for me it never comes of... You cannot use the backscreen with a normal viewfinder , theres a big hole where the viewfinder goes thru, i take the orig window with me as back-up if i wanted to do that. ps i love the nauticam its a little wider than the inon , i traded mine in for the nauticam one I see Bill writes that there is a adapter to mount the inon to the Nauticam house , a year ago i could not find such a adapter so check that out !! Frank
  10. I Always feel that even in december there are a little bit less critters than in Febr- may. If you come for a once in a lifetime i would look at these times but only last december was a total wash-out , bad visibility and rain all day . Club ocellaris replayed from this e-mail adres in june : jsvenus@gmail.com i've been looking at diving with them but wil go someplace else ( been in Anilao 5 times in 2 years so a change is good maybe ) Club Atlantis is for sure good its also the most expensive... Have fun, Frank
  11. Found this schrimp during a night dive on the house reef of Portulano, anybody know its name ? Thank in Advance. Frank
  12. Oke , Jojolcuisto ,i'm booked on 16 may on Seadoors so we'll probably meet then . Frank
  13. There are some vids on YouTube thats where i would start
  14. I have the same problem but for me the solution is to use a 45 degree viewfinder. I can compose and check thru this and not realy via the viewscreen at the back. I'm using a Olympus OMD-EM1 . Frank
  15. Nice shots . Love your skeleton shrimps , Bali is on my to do list so thanks for the shots Frank
