He said that he used an actinic LED to illuminate the corals. That's probably their normal phosphorescence under strong actinic lighting.

Mike, that last shot was taken through the bellows with the Nikon 105VR, manual focused. Unfortunately this lens doesn't have an aperature ring and the cam can't control the aperature. So I'm stuck...

I miss those. AFAIK they aren't on any of the Nikon line through D200. Not sure about the D3/D300 though. There's an aftermarket mod you can make to the cameras. I think it is called a Katz eye.

Here's one of the first pics from playing around with the bellows Santa brought.

The bellows introduces some interesting challenges.

Those are good. A little too much DOF though, IMO. You want the background to blur a litttle so that your subject stands out more. F12-16, maybe?

If you wanted GREAT glass, the 17-55 is an excellent choice. If you want consumer grade and one all around lens you could get the 18-200. That lens covers the gammut, is reasonably priced and would...

D3X will be aimed at Studio & landscape rather than sports and high ISO, so I'd personally rather have the D3. Of course finding them is a virtual impossibility right now anyway.

What cam did you have before the D3 and what do you do with it besides take pictures of fish and hockey? How long have you had it? Have you had any issues with it?

400mm lens would be VERY difficult to control under water, I'd think. Any movement at all would become camera shake and probably ruin more shots than it would be worth. I'd probably stick to...

I think I'm in love. *sigh*

Sweet camera. Nice pictures. I like the light painting. Was that done with just an actinic light or was it done with something like Night Sea?

I've seen good work from the Sigmas and heard great things about the Tameron 90. Personally I use the Nikkor 105 VR (though the VR isn't necessary for macro/tripod mount photography).

You couldn't practically follow at fish at 3x magnification because at that rate you'd have a really hard time finding them in the tank. You need a bit more field of view than is available. The depth...

Thanks. The magnifacation to the back of the tank would be closer to 1:1 rather than what I have there based on my current equipment list.
