Diving in NSW: 2012 Highlights

My latest diving video featuring a handful of the best footage from my dives during mid to late 2012! Including recent footage from my trip up to Tweed Heads, diving at Cook Island, NSW (with my fellow turtles).

 

I'd like to take this opportunity to announce that I'll be in Europe for about a month and a half departing 12 December.

 

I'll do my best to keep scooping but no guarantees as I think my internet access will be limited. But if not, I'll collect URLs of gopro/diving related scoops and be back with avengence in February 2013.

 

Dive. Video. Share.

Sorry about the lack of scooping peeps! But I was SO EXCITED to see this in a LOCAL AUSTRALIAN STORE!! D8 I can't believe I discovered a cool product in-store rather than online first. This hardly ever happens!!

Love Aquaticmotionfilms' videos!

 

I'm jealous that I can't white balance with my Hero 2. Makes such a huge difference! Also jealous about the macro shots. HURRY UP GO PRO!! GIMME MACRO OPTION!!

 

I clearly have a lot to learn though... My footage is no where near as steady!

This isn't diving related but it'll be interesting to see where this tech goes. I also like that one of them is wearing a GoPro wingsuit. :D

 

And on that note, I've changed my name from GoPro Turtle to Video Turtle. 'Cuz who knows what other fancy tech I may be using in the near future? ;)

John West commits to ending destrcutive fishing practices

John West commits to ending destrcutive fishing practices | Video Turtle | Scoop.it

"It took bike-riding sharks, spoof slasher videos, giant tuna cans on roofs and 20,000 of you taking action, but we’ve had a breakthrough. After six weeks of sustained action (and three years of conversation), John West has agreed to end destructive fishing methods that needlessly kill sharks, rays, baby tuna and turtles."

So the beta versions are here and they're calling it pluses. My hero 2 still works like a charm though. Still waiting for a dedicated white balance button and macro function!

 

If the Hero 4 comes out without these features I've been nagging about, I might to look into other brands. Which is a shame, I totally dig the accessories for GoPro.

The problems of the plastic islands at the gyres have been on my mind since I heard about them. I'll be following the developments of this and I really hope it goes far.

 

My only question is, what do we do with the plastic that we collect? I think that part of the process of the 'clean up' needs to be addressed too.

Having a hard time coming to grips with the GoPro Hero3's permanently affixed wide-angle lens? Perhaps an interchangeable optic is within your field of view.

NEMO33 World's deepest scuba diving pool (Brussels, Belgium) | Video Turtle | Scoop.it

Any divers in Brussels from 29th Dec-31st Dec?? I'm hoping to do 2 dives and will need a buddy.

 

The reason why I'm adamant about doing 2 dives is because it'll be my 41st and 42nd dive. Now if I can have bragging rights to say "I did my 42nd dive in BELGIUM" I'll be the happiest hoopy frood in the world.
