Raja Ampat, Indonesia

These pictures were made during 21 of 32 dives on an dive safari with MV Pindito between 14 and 25 march 2005 in Raja Empat on the tour Sorong-Misool-Sorong. I used a Nikon Coolpix 5400 in a Sea&Sea housing and a Subtronic Mini TTL underwater strobe and sometimes a fisheye converter. All pictures were made during daylight because the LED pilot light of the Subtronic mini was too weak for the Cooolpix' autofocus. There were much better situations but either the autofocus was too slow, the camera software crashed or the strobe akku was empty. :-( March 15 to 23, 2005, 105 photos.
