Thank you very much for inviting me to the Tourism Fiji Dive Fiesta 2010! Unfortunately, I will already be back in the US by the time the event occurs. Dang! Anyway, I truly appreciate the thought. Maybe next year!
Best regards,

Nice video Stuart! Where were the mantas filmed? Closer to Galoa or to Matava?
From experience (on the trip I just completed) - a red filter will really put the colour (Scottish spelling) back into your underwater clips. I'll post an example of the difference as soon as my internet (at home) comes back up. I didn't trust the red filter when I was filming (the LCD screen looked really red), so I hardly used it. I'm kicking myself now as I put together the videos.
By the way, how did the conference (Tourism Fiji Dive Fiesta 2010) go?
