Wetpixel moderator Todd Mintz has been featured on DivePhotoGuide.com with a short biography and image gallery.

DivePhotoGuide.com will soon be launching a robust dive operator guide and search engine, and asked Todd about his preferences…

I appreciate dive operators who recognize the individual skills and needs of each of their clients and adjust to try and meet these needs…I also prefer operators who are experienced and excited about what they are doing. That enthusiasm can radiate to the guests and make for a memorable experience for all.

DEMA 2006: Final people photos, Nov 11

It is, of course, impossible to walk the halls of DEMA without being stopped every few meters.  I snapped photos of some of the brief encounters and wish I could dedicate an entire entry to each of these wonderful people!

Special thanks to Willy Volk of Divester.com for coming to DEMA and providing sister coverage along with Wetpixel.  Thanks also to Drew Wong for his fantastic video coverage, and to Paul Ng and Lena Goh for helping to gather information.  Jason and Wendy Heller (DivePhotoGuide) served as great company for the few minutes we had each day to socialize without consequences…

DEMA 2006: Ikelite

A few Wetpixel members (John Bantin, Drew Wong, Shawn Heinrichs, Dave Haas, me) had a little reunion at Ikelite‘s booth while Dave Haas took us on a tour of this year’s DEMA goodies.  Aside from its line of popular dive lights, Ikelite’s booth featured underwater housings for the Nikon D80, Canon Rebel XTi/400D, Nikon D200, and Canon G7 (with ETTL circuitry). 

A new underwater flash/handle system with a built-in slave sensor was also on display and will likely be called the “i35 AutoFlash”...
