    I bought a NIKON coolpix S30 2 weeks ago because I needed a cheap camera while mine is in for repairs AND it was only R995 with waterproof guarantee up to 3 meters.

    This weekend I started to experiment with my new toy and this is some of the results .I still need to iron out all the settings and "tricks" BUT at least the pictures look nice and the glass distortion is 0%

    Close and close-up pictures seem to be the best.

    See for yourself:

    Yes we are busy discontinuing MH and T5's on our display/sales tank and will end-up with only LED's in the near future (already saving +-R1000 on electricity :yeahdude: )

    Yip they are - although I know some guys are interested in them, no deposit have been made.

    But guys remember it is only booked when paid, so the 1st one that pay get it. We get guys booking corals never to arrive as they promised and we end up holding it for weeks :( Otherwise we end up with 100 corals booked / taking away the opportunity from other serious reefers to buy it.

    PM me if you are interested.

    I am going out after 12H00 today and will only be back tomorrow morning to do the shipping of paid items to PE & EL.

    So if anyone want something tomorrow PM ME NOW!!!
