I use a Canon 5d and have been taking photos for 7 years now and have fully embraced the digital revolution. I love diving all over the world but my favourite place has to be Manado for all the special critters. Ultimately my dream will be to go to the Galapagos and get great wide angle shots of Hammerhead wallpaper, whale sharks and active seals (now booked for August 2010!).
