Buying used GoPro's?

Now that my Canon camera is on it's death bed I've been looking at inexpensive alternatives to replacing it. (SJ's, etc.) I took a look on Craig's list and there are a lot of used Go Pro's being...

Quick Maui question.

Just got back from an epic family vacation on Maui. Just took the camera, and left the spearguns home. Last time I was there, (about 5 years ago), we spent a lot of time at Old Airport Beach. At...

Re: record button getting sticky

Sorry I didn't see this earlier. If you haven't already tried this, here's what I do. After rinsing the housing and camera off after diving, remove the camera and close the housing back up. Tie a...

Re: Anybody using these?

Just got home from Maui. My old Canon made it through the trip, but barely. Went through three sets of batteries in ten days of light use. The last set survived a half dozen sunset photos last...

Re: to bring the gun, or not bring the gun...

Hey Fuzz, been a long time bud! I've got the dive camera all ready to go, and I'm now making up some fresh bands for the 90.
I like the idea of donating ROI to the aquarium for shark food.:thumps:

Re: to bring the gun, or not bring the gun...

I think so. If I share the gun with my sons, who are becoming better freedivers than I am, it'll help.:D

to bring the gun, or not bring the gun...

Last time I was in Maui, I took my 90cm gun. Took a long time to figure out what fish I could shoot, and which I couldn't. Ended up hiring a guide, which was the best thing I could have done.

Re: We Can't Commit to One Person Because There’s Always Someone Better, Says Science

Personally I've only been married to my "first wife", for a tad under 28 years. I keep telling her she's still on probation. She's not worried though. I'm too darn ugly to be able to cheat, even...

Re: Regulator questions.

I'm realizing that. The good thing is, I can just use the Apex 50 from work any time I want and I don't even have to pay for the service. Guess I can just do that till I retire!:thumps:

Re: Sit in vs Sit on?

That's great!
Now, a little about the Scupper pro. It's a bit narrower than most other boats, so feels initially tippy. That means it lacks primary stability. The good news is that as a result it...

Re: Sit in vs Sit on?

Before I became a diver I was an avid kayaker. I had paddled a couple of short, fat, slow sit on tops and compared to my long, fast sit in's, they were terrible. As a result, when I started diving,...

Re: Dive light safety

That's good to know. Neptonics said a new battery should be fully charged in about 5 hours. Guess I'll have to just try one of the batteries that's been in the charger and see if it's fully charged.
