Magic Filter Review
When Alex Mustard first announced the Magic Filter I was pretty excited as I was in the market for a red filter for my newly purchased 10.5mm wide angle lens. I was interested in a red filter because I wanted to experiment with the manual White Balance option that a digital SLR offers. As a full time underwater image maker, a lot of my work involves video and in the realm of underwater video, the red filter is king. When shooting video without lights and manually white balancing off a slightly off white slate, rich saturated colour can be captured from further away than what can be obtained using strobes on a still camera.
Scubadru’s Open Letter to the TSA
Have you found items missing from your checked luggage after a US flight? Anyone who’s traveled with expensive equipment can relate to the problems, especially frequent travelers. With the arrest of TSA inspectors and officers for theft and the losses incurred by travelers, it is time for US travelers to take action against the disorganized and ineffective TSA. TSA funding is allocated by federal lawmakers , i.e . congressional and senate control. If US citizens make it known of their displeasure and the inefficiencies of TSA, perhaps we will garner the change necessary to make our airport and airline security safer yet more traveler friendly.
