In Topic: Problems with EOS 400D

I've tried both Adobe bridge and windows explorer but the same problem keep occuring...

I was reading your oringinal post again. You must view the RAW images with a program that can work with them. Windows explorer will not display RAW images until you do whatever postprocessing you want and process the RAW file.

Sorry for not getting it all in one reply.

I have a Rebel XT (350D) and I have done some RAW shooting with it. I use a card reader to transfer the files and view/ manipulate them with with Digital Photo Professional which comes on the Canon driver disk. I have heard that the Canon .CR2 RAW files are not recognized by all the different software. I think there is a plug-in required for Photoshop.

Give that a try and see what happens.

In Topic: Dive Solo

31 July 2007 - 06:27 AM

I know I am new to this forum so I don't want to step on any toes. I spent some time as a public safety diver being on the end of a line in cold zero viz water. So yes I have spent time solo diving.

Fast forward to a dive in Key Largo recently on the Speigal Grove. There were about 8 of us on the wreck. When it was time to surface and everyone was low on air one of our group swam to the wrong bouy line and none of us had enough air to swim through the current and get him. He ended up at the surface in a strong current holding on to the bouy while everyone came back on board and we could motor over to get him. In this case even with many "buddies" he still got into trouble. Most dives I do today I see the people spread out so much that even if you did have an emergency you couldn't get anyones attention in time to help. So as far as I have seen most divers today are "solo" diving even if there is someone in the water with them. The buddy system will only work if you are about an arms length from your buddy.

With all that said I don't go out on the water by myself, I always go with other people even though I don't stay with them underwater. And from my PSD days I always have and alternate air source if I am going deeper than I can comfortably do a swimming ascent.

On another note like I said I am new to the forum and kudos to all. I have found some great info here.
