Ladies and Gents, allow me to welcome you again to the state of the art hydro cells of Manila Ocean Park
where shooting is sweeter, the second time around.

What’s the difference between the 1st and 2nd visit?

1. Same old cells, new faces
Yup! Some fish were replaced by the new ones.

2. No more Spider Crab
Yes it’s true, the gigantic spider crab is gone, and wherever he is, he will always be remembered.
Long live the spider crab
. \m/

3. Rose at Rest
On my 1st visit, I use my lens named Rose (Canon 50mm f/1.8 II) to test under low-light conditions. So since this is a revisit, I use my all around lens named Daisy (Canon 17-85mm IS USM) instead, to feel the difference and compare results.

Here’s the difference between the two ladies (Canon 50mm vs. Canon 17-85mm):
1. Settings

– Good settings equals good photos. Here’s the settings that I’ve used on my 1st and 2nd shoot.

Canon 50mm lens settings:
ISO 800
f/2.5 to f/3.5
1/60 to 1/100 sec

Canon 17-85mm lens settings.
ISO 1600
f/5.6
1/15 to 1/60 sec

– Based on the settings above, Canon 50mm is the good one to use.
+1 for Rose.

2. Zoom range
50mm vs 85mm? Canon 17-85mm wins this one obviously. You can shoot those fishes more closely.
+1 for Daisy

3. Clarity
No doubt about it, Canon 50mm lens has it! This lens is indeed produces more sharper images than Canon 17-85mm lens.
+1 for Rose.

4. Image Quality
The higher the ISO is, the more noise it produce. Hence, generating much lower image quality. Therefore, Canon 50mm got this one with ISO 800 compared to Canon 17-85mm lens with ISO 1600.
+1 for Rose.

Score:
Canon 50mm: 3
Canon 17-85mm: 1

As for the verdict, I personally recommend to use the Canon 50mm  or any wide aperture lens you’ve got when you’re planning to shoot at this place.

Good thing about revisiting is that you have the chance to shoot the new ones, and the one you’ve missed.
So here it is folks, let’s start the show with the new ones.
