  1. I have used Dive Gear Express for other purchases and have always been happy with their service and selection, for whatever that's worth.
  2. Very nice, thanks. Someday I will get up there to dive.
  3. I am really hoping to get down to the Blue Heron Bridge soon. By reputation, it is a macro paradise. I hope to find out.
  4. I just got a set of white fins to use for that. As a plus, it is easy for my wife to recognize me with a quick glance.
  5. FWIW, I do exclusively video, but occasionally try to grab a frame for a still but am never very happy with the results. They are good enough for the label on DVDs, but that's about it. Maybe someone else can give you tips for better results.
  6. Congratulations on your retirement, to quote a friend "I highly recommend it" That said, thank you for all your contributions here. You have enriched my experience here, and I am sure that of many others as well. Safe travels, and enjoy your new experiences.
  7. FWIW, when I had mine before I sold it, I used a bayonet mount and regularly swapped the WWL-1 and a close up diopter depending on what I was shooting. I had a spare bayonet mount on one of my arms and parked it there when I wasn't using it. That said, I wasn't juggling a scooter and deco tanks, etc, so it was a lot easier for me. I just found that the WWL-1 was mostly parked on the arm, and I was switching the close up diopter on and off, so I ended up selling the WWL-1. It was too bulky to carry around for the very few times that I used it.
  8. I am not generally a fan of over/unders or split shots, but I do like the Musky one. These are well done, though
  9. I had a battery go bad on a Sola light as well, and the light was so old, they would not service it. So, like you, I took it apart. I figured that I couldn't make it any worse. I appears to be two 1850 cells with some electronics on top. As far as I can tell, the two red and two black wires are simply in parallel, possibly to carry more current, I guess. I hope that helps. If you find a source, please post it, and I will be buying some, too.
  10. I would love to hear an interview with dreifish if he is available
  11. I have no particular insight, but I can certainly see a model where we will have to get annual or biannual booster shots to account for new variants in the future, similar to the flu shots we get now. I don't think that SARS-CoV2 is going away any time soon. I suspect that we will be living with it for the foreseeable future.
