  1. Hi guys, trying to get my head around time lapse imagery underwater. I have put together my first attempt visit: Any advice on improvement would be appreciated - aprt from the obvious title and post film credits etc C
  2. I've just returned from a trip on the Nautilus Explorer and it has to be said it wasn't that good a trip. The Mexican authorities have banned chumming and as a result the sharks don't come in close anymore. The skippers all say this isn't a problem but let me tell you it most definitely is. If you are thinking of going my advice is to forget it. Yes you will see the sharks but only in the distance and very rarely on the surface. Ask any operator around the world - they all chum for sharks and without bait in the water the chances of getting them to come in are very remote. Until they change this rule Guadalupe is finished as a shark destination in my opinion.
  3. I've just returned home from San Diego to UK and on opening my checked-in camera case when I got home discovered that all my NiMH batteries had been removed - everything else was in the case.
  4. Simple the d100 does not support conventional TTL or D-TTL strobes - it only supports Nikon's own i-TTL. The solution is to remove all the wires except the two triggering ones and use it in manual mode.
  5. We've kind of drifted from the original post but I am the snapper to whom John Bantin refers to about the poor quality of JPEG reproduction in DIVE magazine. John, thank you for your compliment about the image, however, your post totally confirms the myths and misunderstanding about RAW and JPEG files. This was in fact reproduced from a RAW file. The problem was in the repro stage – won’t bore everyone with the details but it was just a change in monitors. There are exactly the same number of pixels in a JPEG as a RAW file, so the SIZE of repro that you can take them to is the same. To give you the other side of the coin a similar shot submitted as JPEG was highly commended in this years Natural History Museum Wildlife Photographer of the year and has been blown up to around A0 size at the museum.
