Haha Wags - I was going to title this short clip "Shawn's wonderful Mola Mola encounter - as captured by NickJ" .... everytime I started panning in on another solitary Mola, there's this great explosion of bubbles under me and this guy comes into the finder and sticks his camera down the Mola's ear!!
To be fair I'm in a good number of Shawn's shots too
Thanks for the comments on quality - I'm really happy about this material. Not bad for the housing's christening in salt water huh? Lot's to learn of course but getting there.
I have been reading the FX7 posts with interest, but not regretting my purchase one bit. Too many unknowns on that other rig and no tested housings yet etc.
My main fear vs the A1 was the size of the beast, but actually in the water the housing is just as easy to handle as a smaller one IMHO. We got sucked into strong down currents at 35-40m at the open sea end of Crystal Bay a few times. We were riding the currents down with the Molas once we'd got the hang of them, and the housing was no real issue - an easily accessible BC inflate button helped at times tho!
