  1. If you have not yet been to Sipadan, save your money so you can go. It is among the best areas in the world for diving, challenging conditions, spectacular sealife, and great dive shops. Malaysia's national parks just increased the number of daily permits from 120 to 180, but most of the increase went to new shops in Semporna and to liveaboards. The nearest shops are on Mabul island (Pulau Mabul), and the best way to see Sipadan is to stay at one there; I prefer Seaventures because they have the best permit to guest ratio, and as a result it increases your chances of getting a permit. Mind you, diving at Mabul is quite good, and nearby Kapalai has fantastic muck diving with great macro, from flambouyant cuttlefish to pygmy seahorses to mimic octopus. Dive the house reef under Seaventures and run into Elvis, the massive (>10m) moray eel (he can be frightening to run into on a night dive). Diving at Sipadan requires at least AOW, but I would recommend the Deep cert as well, and Nitrox if you plan to dive more than thrice a day for multiple days; try South Point first if you can, to see the hammerheads, which often are at 40m and a bit out into the blue. Then get your Cavern or Cave cert, and you can enter Turtle Tomb, a very narrow cave deep under Sipadan Island which houses several turtle skeletons; or, with the Deep cert, you can just go into the entrance to the tomb, which is a wide cavern with easy access out, and still get interesting shots.
  2. Hello kind Wet Pixelers. Has anyone done any diving in Borneo? If so, do you have any recommendations for diving locations? I am interested in animals large and small (I am travelling with a 15 mm and 60 mm macro lens) but am travelling on a budget. I am travelling for 5 weeks and am mainly planning to be on the malaysian part of Borneo but will venture to Indonesia if there is worth while diving! Many thanks, Matt
  3. Hi everyone, I have put together a new Facebook page to display some of my images from the past year, above and below the waves, sometimes in between. I include topics on conservation and promoting awareness of issues affecting the future of our planet. Check it out below and your critique is more than welcome! www.facebook.com/GrantThomasPhotos Thanks, Grant
  4. Does anyone have any have any recommendations of PADI instructor training centres around Asia, specifically in Sri Lanka, Maldives, Indonesia, Malaysia or Philippines? I am also hoping to dive somewhere nice and keep costs relatively low... Many thanks!!
  5. These are few underwater shots which i took using my always reliable Powershot s110 in nauticam housing.... sorry for the qualilty ( it is really small files).. your critics are much sought after...
  6. Ive got 1 possibly 2 days in KL before returning to Indonesia in a few weeks. Im specifically looking for either a Canon S110 or S120 with the Canon U/W housing. I know Lowyat is likely my best place for the camera but am i likely to get the housing there as well? Failing that, can someone recommend me somewhere in the area i can get to in order to buy one. Ideally i'll be there 1 day, 2 at most. Also, im looking to see if someone sells the Ikelite 67mm wide angle lens for their S100 housing somewhere in that area for a friend if possible.
  7. This is a video from Layang Layang. I worked there for 9 months in 2001-2002 (a while ago admittedly) and I reckon it's the most reliable hammerhead dive in SE Asia. Not guaranteed of course but if you take a five day trip you'd be very unlucky not to see a few. Best time to go is March or April. Enjoy....
  8. Our friends at ScubaJunkie have been exploring the reefs fringing the East coast of Sabah, Malaysia. It's been labelled the Sipadan Barrier Reef due to its proximity to Sipadan. Scubazoo went diving there and we put together a 60sec edit. Let me know what you think...
  9. We've been working on a few edits for our Scubazoo YouTube channel recently. One thread we're going to develop is the '60 second' style. We'll be posting a new video on YouTube every week featuring either a different location, animal, or theme. This is our first attempt, and an obvious choice given we are based nearby. In the edit queue are Maldives, East Timor, Komodo and a few others. The footage was taken from our stock footage library and the bulk of it was shot using the outstanding Sony EX1 and Gates housing combination. It would be great to hear feedback or (constructive) criticism. If anyone has any suggestions for '60 second' themes I'd be happy to hear them. You can subscribe to our channel here. Hope this video brings back good memories for anyone who has been to Sipadan or maybe inspires people to visit for the first time. Best watched in 1080P.
