Aquatica Working On S2 Pro
In addition to the many inquiries about there current digital product line, visitors to Aquatica's booth at D.E.M.A. 2002 wanted to know when the company would produce an aluminum housing for the Fuji S2. Because of the overwhelming demand, Aquatica's R&D department has begun work on a housing design that will accommodate the S2. Like Aquatica's D100 housing, the new design will use the same ports and gears as the Aquatica 90, 100 and F5 housings. The new S2 housing will be ready for delivery in the Spring of 2003. Watch this space,or visit www.aquatica.ca for more details.

Virus, at DEMA 2002 Hilton
Those of you who connected your computers to the Las Vegas Hilton during DEMA should check your computers for viruses! From Tim Baskin, posted on the uw-photo mailing list:
Just a little FYI. I was at the Hilton in Las Vegas this last week during DEMA. I logged on the high speed Internet offered in the hotel room. Lo and behold I got hit with the first virus I had encountered. It appears it was located on the hotel sever and infected any computer the logged on that had sharing turned on. My mistake. Luckily my virus software caught it in time. Just FYI. (I got a a derivation of the Nimda virus the comes from network connections)

Ikelite S2 Pro Review
We've just posted a review of Ikelite's Fuji S2 Pro Digital SLR Housing, by James Wiseman: "For a digital shooter who is 'moving up' from a consumer camera to an SLR, there will be a lot to learn but you will also literally laugh with joy on your first dive with this setup. The camera's instantaneous response when you press the shutter is like a dream come true."
