  1. Thanks Brett! Enjoyed reading through your website, very impressive. Peter
  2. The wreck sits in 125 feet of water along the Mexican / U.S. border. She was a Wickes-Class destroyer in the US Navy during World War II. Received six battle stars for service sinking 4 submarines and bringing down 2 planes. She was sunk as target practice on November 8, 1945,
  3. Thank you phil84. I truly appreciate your comment.
  4. Enjoyed watching your video. I became a certified diver while stationed in Okinawa back in 1983. I wish I remembered the name of the dive spot we did our check out dives. It was small cove that was shaped like a swimming pool that led out into open water. Does this spot sound familiar? I was stationed at Camp Hansen perhaps that helps since it was not far from the base. Scuba diving has been a lifelong passion ever since and I have thought it would be cool to go back and dive Okinawa. Thanks Peter
  5. Thanks so much for watching! Easy diving with the warm clear water. Sharks on every dive.
  6. Nice work Stephen! I like the combination of top side and underwater footage. You have inspired me. Regards, Peter
  7. Great shot - very well done!
  8. I'm liking the composition with the different layers -surface water, mid water and bottom. Nice thing about shallow is all the light.
  9. Interesting and unique photos. Black and blue marks through a wetsuit no less and fin nibbles I think I'll pass on this dive. Just say'in .....
  10. Thanks so much for taking the time to watch and comment on my Tahoe video, I truly appreciate it. Yes it was an interesting dive Dale and I would recommend it - altitude and fresh water diving is something i had not done before. Not much marine life but the underwater topography ... oh my very interesting. NWDiver thank you as well and interesting side note on the Emerald Bay wrecks!
  11. Very interesting the video link posted by Kraken adds to the mystic of this unusual fish.
  12. Wow beautiful shots. Very clear, colorful with nice lighting. Well done!
  13. Abundant sea life both big and small, well done. Are the resorts open for diving now?
  14. Interesting and informative life of the Bumphead Parrot fish. Definitely a documentary style of short film. Thanks for sharing.
  15. Thank you so much for the detailed feedback, I really appreciate it.
  16. I agree that buoyancy for a GoPro with video light(s) on a tray probably not that vital. I think a good way to attach your rig so that you don't drop/lose is it more important. Definitely have heard my share of people losing their GoPros myself included. Lost a GoPro 7 doing a giant stride during a night dive. Got to the bottom and wanted to start filming something and realized I did not have the housing screw on tight enough it was gone ....oh my.
  17. I do believe the image stabilization on the GoPro8 has been improved and so has the automatic white balance. Is it enough to warrant buying a new camera - probably not. And yes you will need a new housing but the price is pretty reasonable about $50. Here is an example of the GoPro 8 that I shot here in San Diego California.
  18. I would highly recommend a GoPro 8 with a tray and one or two video lights. I use two Light & Motion lights affordable and effective. Keeping it simple and affortable. You will still need to learn video editing YouTube has lots of tutorials depending on what program you choose. Here is a video I put together using mostly the GoPro7 but some GoPro8 as well. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WTDQ6XtWeiE Hope this helps
