Rig For Silent Running
You can tell them in a minute when they walk through the doors. Bronzed, fit, unkempt*, badly dressed*, thousand-yard stare...the adventure photographers. If they are wearing really, really bad thongs they are underwater adventure photographers - these are the ones I wish to address today.
I admire your courage. I read the shark reports and I am amazed that you venture into the water. Have YOU read the shark reports? Well, next time you do, could you please take one of the Nikon or Olympus underwater cameras with you. We have a fine new batch of hem in stock and they are simple to use.
Still, you'll have to decide that yourselves. If you need to go really deep with a really big lens and a really big camera, you know that you will need a really big housing and some serious flash. Darren Jew, the underwater expert, has just such a Canon outfit and he has whales pose for wonderful portraits.
We can supply the cameras and lenses - for the big housings I recommend the Electric Boat Company in Groton, Connecticut. Ask for the LOS ANGELES class housing.
* Be fair, be fair - this also describes a number of wedding photographers...
