  1. I used a canon 500D closeup lens in the past. It gave the ability to focus closer, but it comes at a catch. It also makes your camera not focus on object that are a little furhter away / that are bigger. 

    Nowadays I stick to wet diopeters, those have more flexibility. With a flip adapter it is easy to put on underwater, when needed and not loose the option to focus on larger subjects.


  2. Hi Tim,

    ye, managing expectations is in place. Maybe add your thoughts on this place when you have been there. Like I said, hope the other side of Zanzibar is at least a little better.

    have a nice trip, pretty sure the national parks are nice!

  3. Hi Tim,

    Although I havent dived on Mnemba atoll, I have been to Zanzibar in March this year. We stayed in the stone town area, and made 4 dives with One Ocean.

    I hate to say, but for me, Zanzibar was, by far, the worst place I have dived in tropical conditions. Most of the reefs were lacking fish, on some reefs we even saw large fishing nets placed, to catch the last few remaining fish there. Coral growth was poor, covered in sand mostly.

    Wish I could say something different about diving there, and I hope Mnemba atoll is at least a bit better.

    greetings Robin


  4. I'm using a lanyard like this one:




    on the surface, its attached to my 2 strobe arms to carry the rig (and it keeps my strobe arms in place)

    when im about to exit the water I clamp it to the strobe arms as well, where the boat crew can grab the camera

    if stuff gets really wild underwater, of I need to assist my buddy or something, I can clamp one of the bolt snaps to my bcd so I can use both hands.
