Re: Hacking your Canon

From my limited knowledge of RAW, it saves what the camera sensor actually saw. Many point and shoot cameras, whilst creating a jpeg have in camera image processing that can add a certain color/light/feel to an image. RAW is more minimal and not processed, thus allowing the photographer to adjust wh...

Three Tree Sat 02-06-10

Dove Three Tree North with my buddy Bpflu this morning. Viz was a good 25 feet and a beautiful day outside. Hopped in the water early and did the usual rounds of the northern "junkyard". For the second dive we went south to the cabin cruiser and spent most the time coming back in the shall...

Re: TTN. 1/31/10

It is a good break from the normal Alki for us Seattleites. I usually hop in the water and swim north to the house with antlers. See the "junkyard" then float/ swim back (depending on tide/current) to the tire piles in front of the entry/exit point. The boat to the south is cool, just not ...

FREE light at 3T

01-07-10 Buddy lost a wee little backup light tonight at Three Tree between the golf ball boats, we think. It wasn't on...as it was a backup light. It is a yellow UK mini q40 with a bolt snap attached. I figure everyone dives there a lot, so if someone happens upon it, it'd be cool to see again. Che...

Re: What's your advice for a new diver in 10 words or less?

Find a regular dive buddy, and stick with them.

Of all the open water classes I help with, lack of dive buddies is the main reason people stop diving or become once every two year resort divers.

Returned last night from a long four day weekend in Nanaimo. It was my first time there, and it was wonderful diving. Went with four semi-regular dive buddies, and we dove with Sundown. Ed was very great, and made our experience a positive one. Friday we dove the Saskatchewan and Cape Breton. I had ...

Re: Don't-miss shore dives on Maui?

Mala wharf or the old lahaina pier is sweet. Long shallow dive with swim throughs, turtles, and reef sharks. Careful getting in the water. Either tread lightly or watch for boats at the launch. Five caves five graves is cool. With more turtles and sharks. Uh and more that I can't remember the names ...
