Well, if someone is shooting for a doco or film, they won’t be releasing the clips online.  I know of 1 shoot but never saw anything from it.  Like it was suggested, check with Gates and see if they know of anyone. But youtube destroys 4k anyways, so it’s probably better to catch it on a reference monitor.

I saw the prototype at ADEX and reported on it on the front page.  They looked very nice!

The Elite is very comfy for a 6’2”, 190lbs guy. My buddy flew Elite and now swears by it.  And he’s very picky!

The general rule is the viz isn’t as good as the fall/winter months (it is the Southern hemisphere), but I’ve had some good days during Jan/Feb too.  As mentioned, the sediment and the upwellings create some bad viz.  However, that doesn’t stop you from doing macro around tulamben, and the night dives at the wreck too.  you’ll be fine.  Just check with the dive ops just when you arrive so you have a choice.  If the viz is bad at the wreck, think of doing the macro trifecta of Tulamben and the north coast sites like PJ/Pemuteran and secret bay.  If you must do wide angle, check on Menjangan area.  Search the archives for Bali tips as well. Good luck.

So now they’ve just straight out offered you a permit for a price?  So much for permit application vs just paying to get that privilege.

But yes, if you get lucky and have cetaceans which are playful, it can be awesome.  Depends on your luck.  I’ve had blown out days, bad days and unhappy animals that just run from anything human!
