  9. Thank you. It is a lizardfish. I never knew for sure what it was eating. I've been told that what is unusual about the shot is that the fish is being eaten tal first. The problem with that (from the lizardfish's point of view) is that the fin spines go down the wrong way and results in damage to the lizardfish's digestive tract. As I said, first dive with a digital camera (it was in 2004). Came up from the dive and immediately started asking, "Who wants to buy a F100 and housing?" Never shot with silver again. PS. The camera and housing are still for sale. Bob
  10. Sorry Spartacus, In fact, it's my photo. Goes back a number of years. Night dive at Salt Pier, Bonaire. First dive I ever did with a digital camera (Nikon D70). If someone would be kind enough to send me a link to the thread, I'd appreciate it. Bob Schrager
  11. Simon, We'd be happy to have someone knowledgeable on this work with us on drafting such a tutorial. One caveat. We believe it is important to be inclusive (as well as get high quality). Rember that not all of the entrants are as sophisticated as this group. Bob
  12. As Steve and I have privately discussed, we at Beneath the Sea are going to try using a DATA disc. If we don't get things working for this year's contest, we hope to have systems in place to do this for next year. Unfortunately (or perhaps it is fortunately), as noted above, the coding keeps changing on what is available and the equipment needed to handle it. In addition, many of us shoot stills and need to be educated as to what is being done in video. We have been getting hi def video's from the video winner for showing at the Film Festival. In the meantime, we hope to see many of you at the show. And remember, you still have 11 days to get your entries in to this year's competition. Visit us at www.BeneathTheSea.org Bob

We will certainly rectify any problem ASAP. Bob Schrager
