In Topic: Dry Suits - How to?

24 October 2014 - 11:19 AM

Personal choice this. I find no issue with keeping a track of my buoyancy using both drysuit and wing.

 

I have to disagree. In the 1980s a number of British divers drowned, tipped over and held head-down when making shallow-water entries or exits with over-inflated drysuits, but there are also rapid ascents, caused by confusion between drysuit and BC, that are equally dangerous.


 

And if the thing does get away from you, relax and enjoy the ride... just breath fast on the way up! :)

 

And that's just stupid, I'm afraid. Many British diving fatalities are associated with rapid ascents.

Dear all,

I just got the Getty invite on Flickr to sell some images. Would you do it?

Alex

 

Your images are much too good for Getty, on those terms.

 

Even I didn't like them, and I've only ever sold one image!

Loving the balanced light you were able to acheive on the wide angle images.

Cheers,
Steve

 

I think that the northern Red Sea may have the best light for wide-angle photography, particularly in the early morning and the evening, in the watery world.

 

I don't know if it's the latitude, the clarity of the water or the tendency for the reefs to be oriented north-to-south, but something makes life easy for photographers.

 

Alex's annual course is a bonus; his experience, shared, might be even more important than the light...


In Topic: How long is Vacuum stable?

Hi!

 

I pumped a vacuum (just until green light switched on, no extra pump) and left the housing overnight. 8-9hours later the yellow light was flashing. Now i am worried that the housing well be leaking.

 

Bene

 

Yes, it's leaking.

 

Check your o-rings.
