  1. Hi all Apologies for not introducing myself sooner, I'm an extraordinarily busy woman! I've dabbled in u/w photography - mainly videography and got more into it as necessity through my work with Ghost Fishing UK where I'm a trustee and instructor. This year my cave diving (which is my primary goal for buying my DSLR and housing) has taken a hit due to covid, so I decided to start trying out my macro lens as a macro port came with the housing. I've had an absolute ball this year shore diving and photographing critters and I was enjoying it so much I went on an Alex Mustard workshop right up at Kinlochbervie. You won't hear much from me as I work offshore as a dive medic, run my own business when I'm at home, still have a Paramedic NHS bank contract and run a charity! I do lots of other stuff too, so I'll try my best to contribute although as a relative newbie I doubt I'll have much to give at this stage, but I promise to try.. Christine
  2. Hi Just wondered if anyone has had this issue or if I should just chuck it in the bin! I have 2 identical Ikelite DS50s (second hand) and one does everything it is supposed to. The other fires when I depress the shutter even just to focus. It always fires before I take the image and it doesn't matter which synch cord it is on. Is this something worth getting fixed or has it had its day? I'm struggling for Ikelite dealers/fixers in the UK :-( Chris
  3. Hi Folks In 2018 a produced a short film for the Kendal Mountain Festival which was shown at the Petzl Underground session. The film has remained exclusive to that event - until now! I have decided to roll it out to the public for you all to enjoy the 2 years of hard work that went into it. The film documents true cave exploration (no holiday diving or following someone else's line here!) with a team led by a woman (yep, that's me!) We documented our discoveries from the outset and I turned it into a small documentary, designed to inspire women in exploration and bust the myth that being at the top end in technical or cave diving is a man's domain. The footage of the brand new cave passage has only ever been seen by the exploration divers (3 of us!) and the 400 people at the Kendal Film Festival. So grab your front row seat and tune in to Youtube and Vimeo (or via my website) at 9pm tomorrow and join us all to enjoy this premiere. Let's face it - what else is there on telly? About the film: Originally created for the Kendal Film Festival 2018, this film documents a female cave diver who kick started a project in Croatia to continue exploring the cold, deep, underwater cave - Izvor Licanke. The film follows her team as they train, explore and document their discoveries which, as with all true exploration, does not always go smoothly. Directed by Christine Grosart. Filmed by Mark Burkey photography, Maelstrom Photography and Design and Christine Grosart. Exploration of this cave continued with significant discoveries in 2019 and the team are returning again in 2020. Link to watch the film: https://www.wetwelliescaving.com/films
