This is only my second dive with this rig (c5050 Ikelite housing) and it's not going to bad. Spent 86 minutes pottering around taking 35 pic's of which 6 are all right. Hope you like them.

<font color='#0000FF'>Hey, those look very nice. You certainly have a better flash than the one on my Canon S40. Is there a diffuser on the flash?

Good closeups, evident from that tompot blenny or whatever it's called in English.

Sorry I did not reply sooner but my computer went tits up.

Kyrre, We do call them Tompots here, as for flash I'm using the one on the camera with a diffuser on the housing, this is ok for macro shots but still get a lot of backscatter. Hope to get a strobe some time but the one I'm looking at costs as much as the camera.

 
mark, Yes I was there this sunday just gone, got there midday and took half an hour to get a parking space

Hi Mark I drive a blue Toyota Corolla and would have been easy to spot as I was soloing with twin 10's, a tad extreme for shore diving but they give me some serious bottom times and when soloing they give me all the redundancy I need, although I am considering swopping then for twin 7's if any one is interested.

Excellent pics !!!

I would recommend the Ikelite DS125 strobe with TTL sensor if you are after a strobe

Thanks Kirky, the DS125 strobe is what I've been looking at but I would rather have the manual controller as I'm a control freak (so the wife tells me). If I get my arse in gear I'm going to have another go a Babbacombe tomorrow.

i dont know if you saw me but i was suffering badly from a night out in torquay, hence only one dive and the use of 80%.

Hi Mark

You saw me and I spoke to you on your way out as I took your parking space next to the Land Rover at the bottom corner of the car park.

Hope to be there this saturday unless the weather puts pay to it or I get a better offer.
