  1. A few images I shot on a short break at Heron Island Qld Australia It was great to see this anemone all balled up, it was a shame I couldn't hang around for the peak of action when both fish were out but it was a led dive and they left me behind as it was. Canon 5dmkiv with 8-15mm fisheye If I had my time again I would of dropped the power down a touch on the lower strobe. Blacktip reef shark, this was shot from above the water whilst standing on a jetty Canon 5dmkiv with 135mm f2 Green sea turtle from the Heron Bommie, If I had my time again I would of put my strobe in full rabbit ears position to get some flash on the turtle. This was shot freediving so a tad tricky to make too many adjustments Canon 5dmkiv with 8-15mm fisheye
  2. Fair call Massimo, I will give it a test sans TC when I get a chance.
  3. Thanks Chris appreciate your input, Bill appears to have put a considerable effort into matching the dome port lengths. I concur about the 180 degree dome similarity but the unknown would be where the camera is situated in the housing? I presume some are further forward/back depending on manufacturer? I am away from my gear but from memory the port length was quite a bit more than 50mm I am not too concerned about corner sharpness as I only intend to use it for CFWA and would always try and frame most things against a dark or blue BG.
  4. Closest I have found yet is Anthothoe albocincta The critter I found may be a different color morph
  5. Yes I tend to spend more time in the wildlife & people sub forum as they get a bit more traffic than the underwater photography sub forum
  6. Hi All Any ideas on this critter? LOCATION: MOOLOOLAH RIVER QLD AUSTRALIA (SALTWATER) SIZE: OD 25MM DEPTH: 5M TEMP: 25C SUBSTRATE: MUCK
  7. Thanks for the feedback, its good to hear the opinions of other members. Check out the images at original size in this DPR thread. I used the port configuration specified at underwater camera stuff who makes the dome but I am no expert by any means. http://uwcamerastuff.com/precision_5_dome.htm I will keep going and see if I can get some decent results.

  9. Hi All I hope you are well and getting some diving in! I Had a test out in the pool with the Canon 8-15mm and kenko 1.4 TC on a full frame camera. I was a bit concerned the image quality would be rubbish. For my level of photography the image quality seems ok and I am looking forward to getting it in the ocean. I have some Nudibranch shots in mind at my local site , so hopefully I can bring those ideas to fruition. Finding any info on this exact setup is not easy, if anyone else has some pertinent info to share please do. I hope to update this thread with some shots when the water clarity allows.
  10. Not really, Every additional day I am on-site I get a day in lieu, I will take about 3 months off after this stint. I have the offer to go to Perth when ever I want but have no family there so not overly interested. Some guys have been on-site since March. Yes quite a steam to Scott, I imagine it would be 24 hours at least.
  11. My current location is a bit sad in the diving department Tim's looks a little bit more inviting
  12. I would love to but dive gear and camera are in Qld. Google Scott reef WA. Would love to put a charter together for a trip there.
  13. You are doing better than me mate, I am in the Western Australian desert thousands of kilometers from home. Will hopefully get to go home after Christmas, could be worse though at least I have a job.
  14. Nice work Tim Its good to hear a positive story, diving looks pretty good too
  15. I use the double flip adaptor from onderwaterhuis.NL. I think they have a single for Subal. I mount a subsee +5 and +10 on it. It is 3d printed and solid enough that I have no fear of losing my lenses. I never liked the look of the subsee one but have zero experience with it.
