Hey that was cool.
Loved the video clip.
So what happens when one rips ya mask of and starts eating ya face
Cool trip though.
Uh....well.......uh........I guess I would say, bite down hard on your reg and turn towards the guide. I guess thats where my job comes into play.....facial squid removal specialist...
I guess a face grab would be one of the more concerning scenarios. Lucky for us most of the customers have cameras stuck to their face the whole time so the squid grab the cameras instead.
For those of you that are interested in this type of a dive expedition the trip is booked all the way into late Sep already. We take a limited number of divers out for saftey. Trips run untill Nov then stop again untill April 07 because of migration and bad conditions.
I was checking out your guys websites, they are awsome!! Looks like you guys are shooting with the Z-1U also. I am using the Sea and Sea FX-1 housing with Nocturnal lights. That is what we shot the clip with.
This is a cool website for photo crazy divers.....

Heh. Sounds at best you'd come out looking like a pimple-faced 15 year old.
