Really fascinating; oh to have caught that on video.

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.

Learnt something new today.

Reminds me that I had a big occy rip my UW camera rig out of my hand once... Strong!!

Luckily it put most of its attention on the strobe (and not my dome) before I could rip it back off its solid grip.

I find octopi quite scary creatures. They have been around this earth for very long, are incredibly smart and are completely deaf. Watching them amazes me, though.
