    yeah, seems to be scorpionfish.. but can't find the exact species on the fishbook..

    I used the high setting throughout the whole dive (only last for 1 and 1/2 dive), but if i'm taking photo, i'll put my DIY diffuser, otherwise there'll be a severe case of hotspot

    Cool-Lee: I like your diffuser! Creative idea, can maybe trying making a firmer one with plastic milk carton and blacktape around too!. Think the spill over is quite a bit so maybe try medium power mode? Was wondering if you use the strobe on the fish will the fish or will the diver have a seizure first? ::)

    SK: Leonard, I think I finally IDed the fish, it's the rare oceanic shadow fish ;D
