    So, we got the wife a new DSLR today for her to use on a photography course she’s started. I’ve posted these on PFK but though I would share here too /tongue.gif” style=”vertical-align:middle” emoid=”:p” border=”0″ alt=”tongue.gif” /> Even in the hands of the inept, better results are produced then I could ever manage with the compact. Especially since the success rate is so much higher. I can’t wait for the wife to learn how to use it properly so that she can teach me!

    Nice one Gareth – love the E. canarensis and at last a decent shot or two of P. rhomboocellatus for the profile!

    Thanks Jim /sad.gif” style=”vertical-align:middle” emoid=”:(” border=”0″ alt=”sad.gif” /> I’m always sad when I lose a fish, in fact, the one in this photo was also lost at one point. I stripped the tank down to re-do all the rockwork and do a much needed head count by removing every fish from the tank (exc. the Etroplus, and I could only find 2 Sicyopterus. I checked just about everywhere you can check in a tank that only contained only substrate and a background, and there was no sign of it…..I was gutted. Two days later, there were 3 Sicyopterus out in the tank! Sneaky fellow

    Thanks Matt, those rhombo’s are the bane of my photographic endeavours, I swear it’s impossible to get any decent shots of them /biggrin.gif” style=”vertical-align:middle” emoid=”:D” border=”0″ alt=”biggrin.gif” />

    Jim I forgot to answer your previous question; we bought a Nikon D5000 kit, which comes with the 18-55mm lens /smile.gif” style=”vertical-align:middle” emoid=”:)” border=”0″ alt=”smile.gif” />

    Thanks Mark

    The full tank shots are pretty poor, need to work out how to do it properly

    Thanks Colin, I will have a play, a read of the manual (probably in that order /smile.gif” style=”vertical-align:middle” emoid=”:)” border=”0″ alt=”smile.gif” />

    yeah lets see how you get on –
    so for example if you are using a kit lens 18 – 55mm and have it set at 55 you want a shutter speed of at least 55

    cheers

    Right, that makes a little more sense /biggrin.gif” style=”vertical-align:middle” emoid=”:D” border=”0″ alt=”biggrin.gif” />
