What a terrible life it must be to be an anglerfish...

Not sure how to embed youtube videos but here it is.

Peterson/Gates Hasselblad SWC First Look Video

29 September 2012 - 07:05 AM

Hey Guys,
I started reviewing some of my camera gear and posting them to youtube.

Here is my preview* of the Peterson/Gates Hasselblad SWC.

Let me know what you think!


Why I hope oil prices move north of $250.

29 September 2012 - 06:53 AM

I have been watching a lot of interviews of Jeff Rubin, a Canadian economist. He has a few wide ranging theories regarding the price of oil and its ties with globalization. While his theories are provocative and aren't necessarily mainstream, I find them convincing.

Jeff Rubin on Oil and the End of Globalization

So in a nutshell - here's why I hope his forecast is correct:

If globalization trends become reversed then carbon emissions recede drastically. That's basically it. We would pollute less.

Of course, if his forecast are accurate, then travelling to PNG would be expensive beyond what I could afford. Digital camera prices would also be incredibly expensive. Prices of damn near everything would be more expensive. The percentage of disposable income used for necessities would increase (things like food, toilet paper and soap).

We would consume less as a species. And while I enjoy buying lots of shit, ultimately I would prefer we pollute less. I am painting in broad strokes here and touching on different points but I would be interested in others opinions on the matter (even though opinions completely opposite to my own).


What to do with an U/W Housing in NYC...

23 August 2012 - 09:00 AM

While there is some diving in the NYC area, most of the vis is pretty bad and using WA is really tough!

I had some WA gear and wanted to use it so I decided to in Coney Island...


Does anyone else find any other uses besides their backyard pool to shoot portraits? Anyone try fountains :-P ?

Nauticam NA 7D Housing with Zen Mini Dome, Flat Port, Stix Float Arms, Sola 600 Red, In...

24 June 2012 - 07:26 AM

Hey Everyone -
It's time to part ways with my beloved housing and setup. The only reason I am selling is that my fiance requires I only have one "monster" in the house at a time. And I am now more interested in film so I have housed my Hasselblad ;-P. The Nauticam served me incredibly well. She accompanied me on around 150 dives (Carribean, Florida and Asia[1][2] click for photos). Without question this camera/housing combination can take stunning photos (provided the right photographer is pulling the trigger). It has never been flooded and always well taken care of. Because shedding all of this gear separately is more difficult, I will sell as one gigantic package for the first couple of weeks and if no bites... then judiciously sell in packages. This will include everything you need (except the macro lens, which I already sold).

1 Nauticam NA 7D Housing.
2. Canon 7D (comes with original box, battery charger and strap).
2. Inon Z240 mk IV (with fiber optic sync cord)
3. Inon S2000 (with fiber optic sync cord)
4. Sola 600 Red (Three levels of brightness and Red function)
5. ULCS Control Arms with clamps
6. Zen Mini Dome to fit Tokina 10-17 (and extension to fit Nauticam housing)
7. Nauticam Compact Flat Port 50 and Extensions (to fit Nauticam housing)
8. Tokina 10-17 with Nauticam Zoom Gear.

Package deal - $5000.
