  6. Went diving on the Magician this last Sunday to the oil rigs. The conditions were not that bad. The ride was smooth out. From what I heard on Saturday they had 7 foot seas so it was not fun being out this Saturday. The water at the rigs was pretty green. So it was not the best of conditions. It was also pretty surgy on the rigs. It was good just to be in the water. Here are pics from the day at the rigs:

  8. Sony HXR-NX3D1 NXCAM 3D Compact Camcorder with Sealux underwater housing Used Sony HXR-NX3D1 NXCAM 3D Compact Camcorder. This camera is full working condition with some minor cosmetic wear and tear. The LCD screen has a few pixels out but does not effect the quality of recording. There is an internal hard drive that allows 1080P HD recording up to 9 hours. There are 2 XLR inputs for microphones. This is a great camera if you are interested in shooting 3D or just 2D. Perfect for someone looking for a small camcorder that is easy to use with excellent quality. The SeaLux housing has complete control over all functions of the camera and is extremely ergonomic. It can be taken to depths of 200 feet which I have personally been with it. If you are intersted or have questions please PM me or reach by email. Nino.ten@gmail.com $2100 obo
  9. I am looking for a good home for my dive gear. The equipment has been well cared for and all worked well when it was last in service, but it has been unused for nearly a decade now so is all in need of a thorough service, clean, and check and is thus being sold/traded as-is. Make me an offer. Photos are of actual items : SeaQuest Balance BC M/L Oceanic piston First and Delta 3 Second stage regulator, plus and Octopus with Depth gauge and Compass If you're in New York City or the tri-state area, i'm happy to meet up for you to take a look. I will consider trade or partial trades for Nikon photo equipment and/or surf or dive housings for Nikon D750, D700. ITEMS MUST GO TOGETHER, CONUS ONLY, I ACCEPT CREDIT CARDS
  10. All, One thing the Scuba community is missing is a good chat platform. This serves a different purpose than that of the forum, allowing people to discuss scuba diving in real time, and will hopefully create a small organic community of those that enjoy chatting to each other in real time. I'll try bridging the gap between the various communities (e.g. facebook, forums etc.). Discord is a rich text, voice and video chat application, heavily used across teams and members of various communities. I've set up a Discord server called 'Scuba Diving' - where the aim is to initially start small and grow it as hopefully, more members get interested. You can use Discord through the web, desktop client, or mobile app. The invite is here: https://discord.gg/mM2Hg7e Please let me know if you have any feedback or comments. Thanks all, SineTwo

This camera kit has been with me on multiple dive trips and takes great pictures. An excellent set for an amateur or someone wanting to step up their photography to the next level...you all probably know Sea & Sea but you can check out the specs on the camera on the Sea & Sea webpage: http://www.seaandsea.jp/dx1g/'> http://www.seaandsea.jp/dx1g/ The twin YS-01 strobes feature the following (from Sea & Sea website):[/t-color][/font][/size] • Circular beam angle of 100°x100° and guide number of up to 20. The YS-01 is a new compact-type slave strobe that can be used for all applications from wide-angle to macro photography. You can switch between DS-TTL (Digital Slave TTL) and a ten-level manual control function, to enable fine adjustment of the light level according to the photographer's intentions. You can also set up a lighting system that uses two strobes in DS-TTL mode. Power comes from four AA batteries for a powerful and long-lasting strobe. You can enjoy taking pictures all day long without having to recharge the batteries. The recycle time takes about two seconds with nickel-metal hydride batteries (2700 mAh) for stress-free continuous shooting. The YS-01 is furnished with a high-luminance white LED target light (1W) indicating the optical axis of the strobe attached to its front face that is effective for night diving. You can fully exercise your creativity with the YS-01, which can be used as a primary strobe or secondary strobe • Guide Number (ISO 100/m) (land)] 20 Beam Angle] 100°x 100° (with diffuser 110°x110°) Batteries] 4xAA A: 6V Ni-MH: 4.8V Number of Flashes] A: 230 Ni-MH: 330 Recycle time (full)] A: 2.5 sec.

  17. It's taken rather too long, but I've just finished going through images from last year, taken aboard MV Sea Spirit in the Maldives. https://www.flickr.com/photos/timsdiving/sets/72157643891843663/
  18. I travelled out to the Maldives as a result of BSoUP's 2012 "Splash-in" competition, joining the MV Sea Spirit and its faithful dhoni to cruise the well-travelled but surprisingly interesting Thilas and channels of Ari Atoll. The boat looks small, until you realise that all the dive gear stays on the dhoni with the compressor and Nitrox. It's actually as comfortable as the much bigger and superficially more impressive boats that ply the Red Sea and Indonesian waters. There are still shoals of fish, sharks of all kinds (somewhat oppressed by crowds if they venture too close to the bigger resort islands), rays, turtles and pretty reefs, largely, I suspect, because of the intermittently fierce currents that squirt in and out of the atolls. For a routine trip, this was something of an eye-opener! More images: https://www.flickr.com/photos/timsdiving/sets/72157643891843663/
  19. My photo of a juvenile Flying Fish is the cover shot on 'FlyMega', the inflight magazine of Mega Maldives Airlines! Also they put an article about me and my work titled 'Mr. Underwater'. Awesome!
  20. Incredible reefs at Eastpoint. It has been a Caribbean island's best kept secret for years - maybe you've heard some stories but not too many people have found a way to actually get there. Curaçao 's incredible east point diving has been talked about for years - no, call it: bragged about for years as the best diving site of the region. An area the size of St. Martin (St. Maarten) on the south-east tip of this island has been in private hand by the Maal family for centuries. Despite the fact that they would like to develop it for tourism purposes they have continuously been blocked doing so by the Curaçao government. What stayed is a huge wilderness area and supposedly almost unspoiled coral reefs, a rarity in this part of the world. Since the area is private property and outside access is rarely allowed by the family, the only way to get here is by boat. Niels Jorissen from DiveCharterCuracao has been the first to do so on a commercial basis, bringing small groups of 7-8 divers by Rigid Inflatable Boat (RIB). Since conditions have to be good for diving the east (rough seas are the main spoiler) he also does trips to more common destinations like the famous Mushroom Forest and Wata Mula, always in small groups in order to maintain a good diving experience. But as he says "the best is east". It's mid-December as I join Niels from Caracasbaai, a famous and very popular area among tourists and permanent residents. Dark clouds gather in the distance, but according to Niels we'll be floating in sunshine in less than an hour; "what falls now, won't fall later at open sea". Once his RIB is in the water, we check our belongings, gear up and set everything up at the boat. With 7 divers things are tight but comfortable. The power handle is opened, the warm breeze floats across my face and I close my eyes in anticipation and excitement. After plenty times of diving with Niels the past years I finally make it to the Eastpoint, on a glorious day as well! Roughly half an hour later we are ready to go, it turns out there is hardly any current, a bit of a rarity. Good for us! The dive plan is simple: Love Cave to Tarpon Bridge, the first aptly named after a couple of mating Nurse sharks found here a few years ago, the latter after a massive underwater bridge frequented by schools of Tarpon. "Take it easy if you see them, let them come to you and you'll be almost within touching distance if lucky" Niels says before we finally enter the water. Unfortunately there are no Nurse sharks to be found in the cave, but it is still a wonderful sight to see, nicely overgrown with soft corals in the front. Just lying still to enjoy the view is the best way to experience it, even when diving with 7 others. Once the group has left I just silently enjoy it a little more. 24 hours ago I was stuck in an airplane for eleven hours, now I am totally zoned out on beauty. The Love Cave. Corals in abundance. Tarpon Bridge without the tarpons. Because of rougher conditions, hard corals are much rarer to find here, but soft corals are plentiful. Since nobody has the means of killing off Lionfish in this area they seem to be around in huge numbers. Funny enough: so seem the schools of small fish. I guess they mostly prey on the species that are close to the corals, the huge number of Damselfish seem to be able to escape the slaughter taking place all over the Caribbean. After arriving at the Tarpon bridge it turns out to be an amazing sight as well. However, lucking out again: no Tarpons to be seen. I guess they're out with the Nurse sharks. Time to end the dive and relax a little. Relaxation is literally around the corner where a very shallow lagoon protects us from the (small) waves, it's time for lunch and drinks and to enjoy the unspoiled beauty of the East. The Maal family may call it rubbish-bush in need of development, we kind of think the opposite. Perhaps it is a good idea to leave it like it is, there are plenty of hotels already and the pristine nature and reefs could do with the current low-key attention. Underneath our boat some huge Starfish seem to have gathered "it's the only place on the island where you find these in numbers" we are told. It certainly makes for a great photo-opp and our surface interval turns out mostly submerged. Surface interval. Loads of big starfish. Since there are only so much sandwiches you can eat, it is time to head out "we've kept the best till last, that's why we named it Best Reef" Niels tries to add to our excitement. And as soon as we enter the water we understand why. "Shark!" is called before we're even ready to descent. A massive 7 feet Nurse shark is lying at 30 feet, totally relaxed and we all manage to take a photo turn by turn without the animal even raising a fin. I've never been able to get close to one that was full out in the water so this one makes up for all the times I've tried and failed miserably. I'm literally lying next to it, dwarfed at least by a full foot. What a stunning creature. The reef itself is even more mind-blowing: row after row of soft corals in perfect condition. It seems to be a never ending field of softly waving jungle out here. No matter how far we try to look ahead: it's just corals, corals and more corals. With the light coming in from the right angle it is hard not to burst out in tears or shout your enjoyment. This is what you dive for, this is what want to see. This is truly Curacao at its best! Hello Nurse shark! Corals, and more corals. Best reef diving on the island, no doubt about it! © 2012 Rudgr.com (Facebook, Instagram) Equipment used: Canon 5D (mkI) Canon 15mm f2.8 fish-eye lens UK-Germany housing 2x Inon Z240 Strobes
  21. Hi everyone, good to meet you! I live in Key Largo and have the amazing opportunity to shoot tons of photos on some of the most beautiful reefs in America. Currently I've got a Cannon G12 with an Ikelite DS160, an Ikelite housing, and the WD-4 Dome Port. One day I'll have a big boy camera like a 70D and can move on from the compacts. I'm up for feedback and really want to progress and get better as a photographer both above and below the surface of the water.
