Hey Ed,

Look like Mike finally got a few shots in focus.


That's because he was spending all his time helping us getting OUR shots in focus. For example, here he is giving Barb feedback. Notice how totally focused he is on the task at hand :)

Beautiful footage. Simply beautiful. The good stable camera work made it really pleasurable to watch. Good framing and well-chosen soundtrack. Thank you, Mike, for sharing that--sure wish I were there! (And the picture quality (color saturation) from the Z-1 is just wonderful.)

On one dive you captured images that many people would dive a lifetime to see. Stunningly beautiful. Great work! :)

Cheers, Simon
