Changed dive sites due to increasing wind. GoPro housing fogged up in the sun.
Includes all the underwater shots I took also (very quickly)
Vis was about 6m but with lots of sand stirred up by strong currents.

Nice Video Panda!
Regarding the fogging:
I have the same problem with my GoPro Hero 2 HD and i believe that it is that camera itself becoming too warm as after about 20 minutes of recording video
the first traces of fogging will show up on the front lens.
I just got my new Snake River Prototyping flat port and i hope this will help to isolate the front lens from the water temperature to allow
longer recording times.
Reef Photo and Video is selling some silicia gel "tissues" to stuff under the camera as in the tiny housing is no space for normal silicia gel

A small silica pack in the GoPro housing should help prevent fogging.

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.
