06 29 2012 Dyron dive
I was looking forward to try a new diopter. It is fixed to the port so I can only shoot small subjects with it but I was willing to have fun. Viz was really bad with a lot of sand in the water. I started the dive in the calurpa area around Judy’s flag. Sandra and Ariane were there too. I found 2 different color pike fish that were very curious with my port, a couple of nudis, and 2 sponge bobs: so cute. One black and one orange. A bit bigger that a pea jumping around. I love them. Then I moved on west and viz was so bad that I decided to head back and run into Steve on the way back and we decided to check on the isopods on the bluetangs. They are still in the same spot and getting bigger. Then I found a very pretty blue stripped goby but the photos are not worth posting.
Photo notes: The diopter is fast focusing and has a wide focal distace range which I still have to get used to. It is sharp from f 22 to f36 but
not sure yet what is the sharpest number. Also It looks that I can get really close. I will try to find something real small next time. I don’t think the chromatic aberration is bad as pointed out in the reviews. I will keep trying it.
