You have a B-day party and your favorite present is a book on Sea Slugs...
Someone mentions getting excited at watching a mating video and you immediately think of a reef spawning video you once saw...
What are your thoughts on your nerdy realizations?

i can't get this damned D800 out of my mind .....
The D800 pictures i saw here impressed me very much especially because of the dynamic range.
Anyway, somebody like me who drag 2-3 cameras around, just bought 2 video lights and carry about 2 times more luggage and weight
in camera gear than clothes is probably a U/W/ photo nerd as well .....

Perhaps you are the peacock of U/W divers.
OMG, if I have two 45 degree viewfinders AND 25 pairs of shoes what does that make me... (and keep the Imelda Marcos jokes to yourself please, she didn't shoot with Canon's!)
Or the Male Mandarin fish. If they had feet, he would likely have lots of shoes.

I have worked as an unpaid reviewer for the editing websites since 2002. Most all hardware and software is sent to me free of charge, however, in no way am I obligated to provide either positive or negative evaluations. Any suggestions I make regarding products are a result of my own, completely, personal opinions and experiences with said products.

When your wife suggests an evening investigating the best use of a lubricant and you promptly head to the camera room and work on lubricating O-rings all evening.
Maybe also if you have a camera room :-)
