Tools of the Trade

Officially its spring but that doesnt change the fact that its still bloody freezing. As such any water incursions require some pretty strong exposure protection and unfortunately a certain australian wetsuit company has screwed up our order. So both of us are land based at least till monday.

So, as we cannot in the short term fill your aquatic needs, this seems like a good time to let you know what we are currently working with.

We both have the same camera and housing setup which is:

Camera: Canon SD980IS/IXUS 200IS

Or if that doesnt do it for you, heres another picture with a transvestite prostitute that fell face first into a makeup counter

and here are some koreans who look far too excited about it

Camera Case: Ikelite Housing #6240.98 (imaginative product label)

The total price for these goodies was AUD$500 which is pretty cheap for a HD filming good quality underwater camera setup.

To start this blog out right we have decided to give you a taste of what we do and what better way to do that than to display our previous aquatic recordings (all in high definition).

This is an edit from our latest dive at Fairy Bower in Sydney

This is an edit from our recent trip to the Philippines

This is an edit from a days snorkeling at Sydney’s Shelly Beach

This is an edit from snorkelling at Clovelly Beach in Sydney’s east

Well, the day has arrived. We are officially bloggers.

Welcome to our blog site, 2fishoutofwater.

Firstly, the introductions. I am a 27 year old electrical engineer from Sydney, Australia, fish number one of this duo. My other aquatic associate is my partner, a 27 year old mechanical engineer also from Sydney, fish number two. (Disclaimer: To avoid the wrath of my darling girlfriend I should note that this is not a hierarchical numbering system).

So why the oceanographic theme you may ask? Well this blog was created to document, among other things, our shared common interest in the underwater environment. We are avid scuba divers and snorkelers and enthusiasts of all things even slightly damp.

We shall be posting a variety of information including:

  • Records of our diving/snorkeling adventures, both local and international.
  • Videos and photos of these adventures
  • Personal opinions on general ocean-related topics such as unsustainable fishing practices
  • Aquatic equipment reviews including: underwater camera equipment, diving equipment.
  • Anything else we can possibly think of that might inform and entertain readers.

I hope any of you that have stumbled upon our blog find its contents interesting and feel free to comment.
