Re: bored so here are some piccies

Hi Slammer,


They're beautiful!

It's always uplifting to read a nice post from you in Malta after what you went through here in CH. Hope things stay well for you.

I assume you don't have chestnut stands in Malta () so how do you spend your evenings while the EFers here spend their time looking for the perfect cozy space?

Actually I went for a paddle, then had an ice and ended up sitting out at Travellers bar in Bugibba, then a thunderstorm passed through along with the first rain for about a month.

Just a compact Lumix... FT4, I think. Yes. Waterproof to 12m, does a pretty good job, I think.

Some of them I forced flash on, and overrode a lot of the auto settings, others, like the coral garden one, were just the result of clear water, midday sun, and a +1 or +2 exposure.

Re: bored so here are some piccies

That's Iron Pig, poor thing is a sick piggy at the moment, seal on the Water/oil pump broke, got water in the oil and oil in the water, repaired it myself, screwed up the repair, tried to unscrew the screwed up job and ended up screwing it up even more and now I walk. At least until I get a new set of seals.
The camera I use is a SJ4000 it's almost but quite entirely unlike a go pro but at 70 euros it does the job as good as any 300-odd euro GP, and I can take it down to 20-odd meters. A SCUBA buddy of mine took his down to 40 meters without a problem.

Re: bored so here are some piccies

Nice. I haven't depth-tested ours - if I'm scuba-diving it's likely to be 20-25m at least, and it doesn't seem a good idea to take a 12m rated one down that far.

Here's a couple more. Sometimes the subject is better than the picture, IYSWIM, as in the first one.
