  1. Hi,

    I used to have the 60mm but I sold that along with the EM-5, and with the EM-1 I bought the gear for the 12-50mm but I can't help but feel that the 60mm was much faster to focus.


    For the same size subjects, what is your opinion on the lenses? Do you find that the 60mm is faster focussing or am I imagining things? :) I have the Nauticam SMC - so for max magnification I think I have about the same.


    The reason for dropping the 60mm was that when we rent the camera to someone coming from a point and shoot setup they find the FOV of the 60mm to be too tight.





  2. I took the Dell UP2414Q, realistically I should have got the 32, I will get that later in the year I guess.


    24" is too small for a lot of what I do on it. Making raw adjustments on there is a pain! The Eizo is great, but I have nothing to compare it to. When they are both calibrated (Eizo using the inbuilt calibrator, Dell with Datacolour Spyder) they come out pretty similar in terms of colour.


    Running Windows 8 for now... No trashcan just yet.

  3. I just watched it on my LG tv at 1080 and liked it. Lionfish and the Anthias shots were my favourites.


    My 3D TV is only 32" I suspect for an immersive experience it needs to be double that - that's one of the first movies I have watched in 3D so could not even consider myself to be someone who knows anything, but shots that were separated from the edge of the TV seemed to work better in my opinion.

  4. Hi Okuma,


    Quite a few people have died in Manado and the surrounding area, and it is still flooded to around the 2nd floor in many houses in central Manado as of this afternoon.


    As an 'expert' on Lembeh, I am sure you are aware that Manado is on the opposite side of the landmass to Lembeh, so we should not get any fridges / coolers or bodies washing up on this side for a while. When it does happen we will just clean it up.


    Bitung had some minor flooding but no road closures. There has been minimal trash on my beaches today but a lot of pumice rock.


    We had some (local) people stuck in Manado yesterday and I believe that the resorts in Bunaken did not dive today because of the large waves. Large Waves + Spring Tides + Crazy Rainfall are a recipe for disaster when combined with poor city planning.
