    shot about 8 pics and my SD card did not want to go into my laptop to easily, one of the copperish prongs is sitting up a little, guess thats it Donald Ducked. Glad this didnt happen after a days shoot.

    Zoomed up on the pics while they were still in camera, the tripod, flash and F22 with my 35mm prime was a huge improvement than the Handheld shots. My fish don't sit as still as his shrimps, but still...

    I have kept Tropical fish for about 27 years and never took a photograph of them.............
    I have an advanced degree in procrastination and another one in paranoia.

    These shrimp are about 2-3 cm in size. He was doing macro through the glass and still the shots look pretty sharp. Impressive.

    Hohoho, seems like Df and E72 model I have can have a go, maybe even with 2x TX, just need to go to a pet shop or our Zoo sometime again. In fact amphibians do make for prettier shots IMO, but dirty glass or them being too far hasn't helped in the past, but that indeed isn't my issue anymore.

    Yeah, good quality photos! The ocean (including the aquariums) and the universe photos are always pleasant to watch. I tooked a piece from the ocean and keep it in my aquarium, it would be great to have a "universium" - an aquarium for the universe. Your article made me want some shrimps in my aquarium. I would definitely like to have and some worms in my fish tank as they look as cool as the shrimps, but they would kill my fish.
