  1. Thanks Steve, One strobe on the first nudi, two on the rest, Brrr...
  2. Had a chilly 9 degree dive with a great group of UK divers yesterday on the south coast of the island. Lack of schooling fish and relatively poor vis meant focusing on macro textures and some of the many flabellina that were there, here's a couple of favourite shots taken with the D300s, 60mm macro and Nauticam housing. Hope you enjoy them, any feedback welcome
  3. Hi Adam, With my old Canon setup, I did the same as you, left to STTL, right to 9 o'click, magnet in and it worked... sometimes. Good luck Alex
  4. I love number 4! The look on his little face.
  5. I liked the 'throughout the universe', no payment mentioned, maybe I should go back and request some $$
  6. SMithsonian museum sent me an email saying they want to use my photo in a half hour TV programme about the Smithsonian competition. Honoured, yes, but they also sent me this 'materials release form' to sign. Would you sign this? Seems like I'd be signing over the rights to the image forever for them to do whatever they want.

  7. Hi all, I'm pleased to say that I just won a holiday !! for the BSoUP print competition best in show! Winners for those interested can be seen in the following link: http://www.bsoup.org/BSoUP-DIVER_LIDS/2010/results.php I won a trip back to Egypt where I took the picture, in Marsa Nakari. My question, has anyone here been to Wadi Lahami and Marsa Nakari? I'm thinking of upgrading to a trip to Wadi Lahami. Is it worth the upgrade? Thanks for your help Alex
  8. Hi, In the case of the Nauticam, the D300s requires a different back plate to the D300 housing as the buttons are in slightly different places with an additional Live View button on the D300s. The housing fronts are identical though so it may be worth exploring the possibility of just changing you housing rear. I'm not sure with the D200. Alex
  9. Don't forget a nice high shutter speed too, My one experience with dolphins, I set TV at 1/250 and let the camera do the rest.
  10. I started with a 60mm macro and a 10-22 EFS rectilinear wide angle although the TOkina 10-17 is quite a bit cheaper and very popular. I still prefer my 10-22 though. MOst of my WA shots in the Egypt 2009 section on my Flickr page are taken with the 10-22.
  11. Wow, I lived in Byron for 1 year and dived most days, I never say a manta either! Lucky you!
  12. Ouch! I've got the answer for you Tim
  13. Have a sneak preview of the new member of the Nauticam family here: http://underwatervisions.wordpress.com/
  14. Latest update is that the production Nauticam housing for T2i/ 550D should be available in mid May.
  15. Very nice shots! I do like the pygmy too!
