Aquatica’s Jean Bruneau gives his first impressions of the Nikon 10.5” fisheye lens (with Nikon D100 and Aquatica D100 housing). UPDATE - March 15, 2004 - Photos from under the ice, by Jean Bruneau.
We would like to spread the word about a public call to photographers for helping to protect the biggest fish on earth. In Jan 2004 sharktrust.org lined up together with Project-A.W.A.R.E to start tracing the migration routes of whale sharks. These routes maintain yet unknown and are essential for enforcing the protection of this lovely species.
If you have photos of a whale shark, you can help! All you have to do is to send a copy to sharktrust.org or Project-A.W.A.R.E, and quote the place and date you took the picture.
Scientist are going to match the dot pattern with other photos from their database to identify the shark. The dot pattern on the whale shark is unique as a human fingerprint The more submissions are forwarded to scientists, the more precise the estimation of the migration routes is going to be.

Photos of Olympus 8080 Leaked
Update: According to Olympus’s PMA announcement, the Pro88 actually IS the new Olympus 8080!
A website not affiliated with Olympus has just released some photos of the new Oly 8 megapixel 8080 as well as the camera that looks like the E20 replacement apparently called the Pro88. I’m sure we’ll hear more once the official Olympus PMA announcement comes out later this week.
