Dive Magazine, First Digital Cover
Underwater photographer Douglas David Seifert and Dive Magazine editor Simon Rogerson have notified Wetpixel that Dive Magazine has printed their first all-digital cover!
“This is our first all-digital cover, and I'm extremely proud of it. I'm especially happy that our first digital cover should be an animal as majestic as the whale shark. Douglas David Seifert is probably the best shark photographer in the world, and once again was first on the scene when an astonishing discovery was made.
“I have noticed certain correspondents arguing that current digital photography is not appropriate for magazine use. Hopefully this cover shot - and an A3 portrait of a great hammerhead we are using in our Shark Special magazine will disabuse them of that notion. Make no mistake - digital has arrived.” - Simon Rogerson [read more]

Subal SN80-D Strobecase
Subal has quietly released the SN80-D Strobecase, a housing for the Nikon SB80DX flash. The Strobecase SN-80D with the Nikon SB80-DX is suitable for lenses of 14mm (with built-in diffuser) or longer focal length. It works directly with cameras via the Nikonos-system TTL cable, and with suitable housing hotshoes can support DTTL underwater. Maximum flash ranges are reduced to approximately 1/2 of the above water values.
The Subal SN80-D Strobecase is available from Wetpixel sponsor Marine Camera Distributors. [more information]
