Re: In the North of Bali for some deeper dives

So rad! Diving near Ahmed? Also, what's your camera setup for those macros? Great stuff! We were north of Ahmed, but we did pop down there to do what ended up being a drift dive with strong current on the day. Camera is a Panasonic LX100 (also released as the Leica D-Lux Typ 109). Both have the sam...

Re: In the North of Bali for some deeper dives

Awesome! We spent 10 days at Wakatobi dive resort not too far from Bali for our honeymoon. Your photos bring back some great memories. Great reef life in that area. Are the lionfish becoming a problem there? There are a few but I don't get the sense they are in plague proportions. We get them here ...

Re: In the North of Bali for some deeper dives

Awesome photos. 75 meters is getting there. What was your deco obligation and were you diving wrecks or walls? The 75 was to recover a lost camera from a previous dive. We found it pretty quickly and had nothing to hang around for so the deco was tame (profile below). It was on a wall. Using 17/35 ...

In the North of Bali for some deeper dives

Took a trip to the north eastern tip of Bali for another diving holiday. Its a bit dark lower down so less chance for pics. Its also hard to manage camera equipment when you are running extra tanks. I was wearing the SBBN013 half the time, though it does tend to get left behind on deeper dives as wi...

Long-time Android here, running a Pixel 2.

I hadn't ever noticed the cost of iPhones...was stunned to hear the prices of these new ones. WTF.

Re: Physical Oceanography/Applied Physics

There was a guy who did the physics calculations on 'dynamic pressure' on one of the forums. He found that for the fastest it was possible for a diver to move their arm underwater it would generate 3m of additional water pressure at whatever depth they were at. So not really a big thing.

Re: Shogun vs Pelagos

I'm going to go the other way and vote for the Shogun, but I'm hedging my vote by saying the Seiko Shogun is probably a better watch to use while diving. I am not saying the Seiko is a better watch. Yes, the Pelagos has a better bracelet, but I don't wear a bracelet diving. I wear a rubber strap or...

My daughter has a 13" ASUS ZenBook that she seems to love. Does have a touch screen though. I'm not totally opposed to one but I just don't really want/need it and that option seems to really add a lot to the cost Yeah. I admit to seeing touch screens as superfluous too...but they are actually more...

I wish I saved the screen capture of the Google street View image of their US location. It was a very modest home in a rural area of a southern state. I hate to see any business go under, but it does make sense. They didn't seem to expand their designs beyond their core theme (from what I noticed -...

I do remember them forgetting to put a lume pip on the bezel of their first dive watch.

And being told to "be the wolf!" by one of their inner-circle-jerks as a response to criticisms. LOL
