Philippines 2012

Here are pictures from Malapascua and Cabilao from a ten day trip in January 2012. Major thanks to Vic from Sea Explorers Malapascua who did a major effort in finding macro subjects on a lot of long dives. Konrad from Cabilao Sea explorers also did a good job. The hardware was a Nauticam housing for a Canon 7D, two Inon Z240 strobes, a Tokina 10-17 in a Zen dome and an efs 60 mm macro. For the super macros I added a Subsee diopter. Above the thresher sharks the pictures are from Malapascua, below they are from Cabilao
