Tiger Beach Diver Missing

Not good

As usual the media gets at least part of the story wrong - stating that Abernathy is controversial because of no cage shark diving - whereas all Bahamas operators do not use cages as far as I am aware.  Unfortunately, I think night diving in these environments may not be the smartest thing despite having done it myself. My condolences to the diver's family.


Nikon 1 V3

This looks like a really exciting camera with some pretty impressive capabilities both on the video and still side. The V1 is really maturing into a serious camera I think.

Some standout details for me:

20 fps RAW continuous focus, 60 fps fixed focus

1200 fps  low res video

Modular - strip it down to slip in the pocket, add grip, viewfinder etc as needed

Use it with all my Nikon lenses, not new I know, but a 20 fps action camera with my existing 70-200 sounds impressive

WiFi

18 MP high ISO capability - be interesting to see how the dynamic range etc compare to the DSLR's

I think this could be a serious traveling underwater and wildlife camera particularly if Nikon get serious with some WA lenses; actually I see they make a 6.7-13. Hmmm getting better. Now what about housings Nauticam?
