Re: First time out with GH4 + Olympus 60mm macro

I pushed back against getting an external monitor for years after switching from L&M housing that had one integrated. It took me one dive to get totally addicted to it again ;). Now I'm just sorting out the cables to make what I have compatible with all my systems.

Stephen, Yes and no... I'm used to shooting with a tiny viewfinder with regards to framing and with the peaking i can for see when things are generally in focus. Now I'm using an Atomos Shogun in Nauticam housing as external monitor and off board recorder (for prores footage) which makes finding foc...

Cove 2 after dark, #360video

This is a really quick stitch/edit of our dive at Cove 2 with the Samsung Gear 360 in a home-brew housing utilizing two of the Telesin 'replacement' Dome Ports and an interface ring made from Acrylic Cake rounds from Tap Plastic.

Still working on it, but some first look screen grabs from my little frankenhousing for the Samsung Gear 360. This is the little observation dock out by Salty's on Alki, shot whilst doing the 10' pressure test on the housing. The 30' pressure test did not go so well, but have gone back to a gasket s...

Re: 360 screen grab from Salt Creek

Conditions were outstanding weather and swell wise, the river discharge made the west side tannic and low vis but the north east side was very good. The kelp is scenesing and no bait fish school, typical winter diving out there, but to me it was worth snorkeling for sure since I was already in neigh...

Re: Weights Minimum

yup, agree with ballpark 35 to start, probably drop down to somewhere between 30-33lbs with a jacket BCD and Aluminum tank, depending on your body composition. You'll be heavy at start of dive but as Mike says, the buoyancy shift from slurping down a tank needs to be taken into account. Personally I...

Re: Waterproof Drysuits for Puget Sound Diving?

The D7 is a solid suit. (And i'm a huge DUI fan so that is saying something that i can see past my bias and say that <grin>) I got hands on a few of them several months ago to do pee valve installations for a project and they are a very robust suit, the manufacture looked good. They are a heavy suit...

Re: Shrimp Shortage???

No shrimp seen at Cove 1 yesterday on the reef or near the storm drain or in the debris trail. Usually they are lined up in the nooks and crannies.
