What we see in the blue

Before the wedding in end September and the Honeymoon/divetrip to Cambodia I thought it was about time to upgrade my photo equipment a bit. Since 2003 I have been ok with my Sony DSC and waterproof case, but I must admit it was rather slow and getting too old, but all the fuss about also needing to get a new waterproof case had made me wait…  now was the time.
I still prefer a small compact camera because I like to be able to carry it with me in a pocket – I’m not a pro with a huge camera and I do know I will never bring a huge camera with me around…  so my choice was to switch to Canon and the newest compact at that time – the Canon IXUS 110IS and the Waterproof Case WP-DC32.

One of the first underwater photo’s I took with the new equipment was this rather big Sea Star / Starfish I found in the water outside the island Koh Rung Samloem, Cambodia –more about that trip later…

The original “Sharks of the World Field Guide” by Save Our Seas Foundation is now ready for the iPhone as a free application.
All 440 species of sharks are in there, so it should soon be a must bring for diving trips…  maybe not in Denmark..

The Sharks of the World Field Guide can be found in the App Store, search for “Sharks Guide” which is also the name of it in App Store.

Thomas Szlavik holding on to a coral??!!!

Reading a Danish website the other day I saw an article about swimming and diving in China, which seems pretty cool, but what really caught my eyes was the author Thomas Szlavik in the picture telling that he’s holding on to a dead coral??!!

What the f*** is he thinking? nice of him going to China to bring back a nice article, but that doesnt mean he should ruin the corals by holding on to them – even dead corals are ‘no touching’!

Yeah, what is SeaWalking? Let’s agree it’s certainy NOT diving! but some kind of idea that people who’s afraid of getting water on their face can walk with a big helmet on their head and being dragged along a line on a walk on the seabed… hopefully not on the reef!
I’m not sure I can really see the great idea in it compared to a snorkel and a mask – a lot more freedom to explore in that way, but from the pictures at SeaWalking Borneo it does look rather fun walking around with a 35 kg heavy helmet at a retail cost of 30000 USD… in that ligth 70 USD for 20-30 minutes is in fact rater cheap…
But it seems like people at YouTube likes it…
