Dave Baxter Profile

Dave Baxter

I am from Australia
Member since: Monday, November 3, 2008
I got serious about U/W photos about 2 years ago - my 1st DSLR was a Nikon D50 in Ikelite housing , which lasted those 2 years until the need to improve the MP count as well as FPS count got too great (D50 is a 6mp camera) - hence I have upgraded to a Nikon D300s in aquatica housing in March 2010 I now shoot a Canin 5D

I have the following lenses 10.5mm, 10-17mm, 60mm and a 105mm

I dive the temperate waters around Western Australia -traveling once a year to a tropical location for fantastic creatures and warm water ;-) I really enjoy the stress of temperate macro work -its a challenge .
