Underwater photographic equipment cannot be watertight unless the O-rings that seal it are flawless. Always carry spare O-rings in your camera case.O-rings are the most important components of your underwater camera system. If the O-ring is lubricated, it will be elastic enough to shape itself uniformly around the channel. If it is dry, there will be too much friction to allow it to reshape itself uniformly. It will not safeguard against flooding.Every time you open the camera to change film, examine the O-ring and service if necessary.Always clean and lubricate after every diving day.When in doubt about the sealing capability of an O-ring, always discard and replace.Never use a sharp or pointed object to remove an O-ring! Use the O-ring remover tool.Don't overgrease! Too much grease attracts debris that will disrupt the seal and cause flooding. Silicone grease is not a sealant; it only protects the O-ring from abrasion. A perfectly greased O-ring looks moist and shiny.
The breathtaking scenery of this world famous marine park is brought to life in this book by stunning work of the well-known underwater explorer and photographer Neville Coleman. AUSTRALIA'S GREAT BARRIER REEF contains over ninety of his most beautiful full-color pictures. To complement these Neville, who has had a lifelong interest in all kinds of marine life, has written an informative text describing each photograph in detail."
A compilation of images and reference files from the Australian Marine Photographic Index of Australian marine fish.
The book systematically explores and accurately charts some of the choicest diving sites in the Bahamas. It has been designed for the typical Scuba sportsman, usually with limited time and/or budget.
$ 3.00Each title in this series is a bestseller. But perhaps that's not surprising. The books take a unique approach for divers, combining the best aspects of a great dive-only guide and mixing them with the travel information you need. The focus is definitely on things to see below the waves, with top dive and snorkel sites described in detail and ranked for visual excellence. Sites include shipwrecks, coral walls and reefs, blue holes, underwater trails and even sunken planes. An ability rating helps you determine the right sites for your skill level. Every spot is shown on island maps.
What makes the books unique is the amount of information for landlubbers (or divers that have to rest for the day), including local museums, jeep excursions, historic forts and more. The authors -- both experienced divers -- provide a selection of diver-friendly resorts, hotels and live-aboards that offer tank refills, boat rentals, on-site certification, equipment rentals or night dives. Restaurants are also given. An extensive "Facts" section at the end of each area profile gives easy-to-read travel info -- climate, clothing, vaccination requirements, transportation and Customs -- as well as the location of the nearest decompression chamber.
Extensive coverage of the Florida Keys, California, Hawaii, Bermuda, Caymans, Cozumel, the Galapagos Islands, Caribbean islands, Brazil and Belize.
Come out and support our local bird rescue while hearing about the birds, learning how to photograph them close up and in a natural setting. We will have one of Canon's Photo Experts with us to give guidance on your photography and you can borrow cameras and lenses from them during the event. Dress appropriately for the weather, this is a rain or shine event. Reasons for cancellation would be if it were dangerous for the birds to be out of their cages (extreme heat, hail or lightning).
Proceeds from this event will be donated to the birds upkeep and wellbeing.
We will be meeting in the Helix Studio (Upstairs), 100 N. Walnut Street, Itasca, Il. 60143

This is the BRNO dri+Cap Dehumidifying Desiccant Refills Pack 8 [JU2036]
As you know, cameras and lenses, especially modern electronically controlled ones, can be easily-and permanently-damaged by exposure to moisture. Even the condensation that can occur by going from a cool room to a hot outdoors or a cold winter day into a heated house can create condensation on a lens or in a camera. This moisture can lead to fungus or mould damage over time. Humid environments are equally a problem. To solve the problem of humidity/moisture control BRNO has developed their unique dri+Cap protective system that maintains camera bodies and lenses at the proper relative humidity of 35 to 45%. This is accomplished by a colour indicating silica gel in a special packet that does not shed dust particles. the packet is placed in a chamber in the rear of each dri+Cap. The chamber has an O ring to keep the cap seal the cap and not allow the packet to absorb moisture when the cap is not on the item. When attached the dri+Cap has another O ring to keep moisture out of the camera body or lens and to allow the packet to absorb whatever moisture the lens or body has been exposed to. The dri+Cap is supplied in a set for various camera bodies and lenses. Each kit includes a dri+Cap body cap and a dri+Cap rear lens cap plus 8 foil sealed packs of the BRNO colour indicating silica gel
High quality body and rear caps with 8 packs of foil sealed silica gel.
Silica gel changes colour from orange to deep green as it is exhausted.
Special gel bags do not give off dust particles.
Maintains relative humidity in camera body and lens at 35 to 45%.
O ring seals to keep moisture out of caps.
Caps supplied with moisture proof covers for storage.

For tripods, use the threaded insert in the bracket. For cameras, place the socket cap screw in the channel and secure with the larger (3/16) allen key. Loosen the smaller screw in the bracket and slide the bracket onto the battery. Use the smaller (3/32) allen key to lock the bracket.
Here is a high quality, black anodized aluminum Step Up Ring made in JAPAN. This is for mounting a 55mm filter or hood on a 48mm lens front ring. Step up/down rings like this are a good idea. Filters and hoods can be very expensive so these rings save you a lot of money. I like having the ability to use all of my filters and hoods on all of my lenses.
