In Topic: New Housing "Airlock" Vacuum from Backscatter

I wonder about how accurate these systems are - I certainly see the intuitive connection between confirming that the pressure inside your housing using one of these systems not changing confirms that your housing will not flood.  But have there been extensive tests confirming the link between these two? 


Changing the pressure inside of your housing at sea level using a pump is different than changing the pressure outside of your housing at depth using seawater.

The images and video will more than likely still be less than brilliant with such a tiny lens.

Call me a cynic, but i don't see this as a good idea or a needed product.

You have some points there. But with the smaller lens - just look at some of the gopro videos... that's a pretty tiny lens!

Also, I like the idea that if I get lost at sea I can use it to make an emergency call. That's one function I think is really nice (even though admittedly you won't get phone reception at every dive spot, this could be a potential life saver).

Anyone get one?

In Topic: Another crab from Indonesia

Love the worm on his head!

Ugh... I sold my u/w gear and just looking at this little crab makes me miss diving and U/W photography so much!!!

Of course along with that I thank my lucky stars I was privileged enough to take some shots underwater... but the act of it is so much more than looking at photos... I just miss being underwater will little guys like this...

You can have your fancy parties with interesting people spouting shit out of their mouths... I would take a night underwater with this guy any day.

Sorry for the rant... I just miss the water...

I may be way off the mark...and probably am... but those black spots look like chromatophores to me... hence something in the cephalopod family. Baby cuttlefish?

Excellent! I really love the flamboyant cuttlefish. Any shots of those guys are great but the combination of his sleepy eye and the "prongs" being nicely out of focus is particularly good.
