The Ikelite PCm LED is my current back-up scuba diving lamp while scuba diving in the Dutch waters. It’s my primary lamp when scuba diving in tropical waters. Somewhere down the time line I got this lamp as a present with my subscription on a scuba magazine. Nonetheless this dive lamp has performed wonderful the last few years. Let’s take a closer look at it’s specifications.
How often do you buy a new wetsuit? I recently bought my 2nd one since 2010, the Bare 7mm Elastek. My last wetsuit lasted me for over 5 years! After that time it really was time for a new one. Last Wednesday I went scuba diving and took the change to really test my new Bare wetsuit. Water temperature was 3 degrees Celsius with an air temperature of -1 degrees. How did it go?!
During one of my last dives in 2014 the dive housing of my Go Pro Hero 2 broke down. No idea how, but I lost my shutter button. It was just missing from the housing at the end of my dive. I did have some luck as my camera survived. I tried repairing it, but that failed completely. A camera without housing isn’t very usable for a scuba diver. So I went in search for a new dive housing for my old Hero 2. This turned out to be quite a search.
Suunto quietly released their new DM5 software on the 29th of October. For people who never heard of DM5 software. It’s a program which allows you to download your dive logs for advanced analysis and upload detailed dive plans to your dive computer. Off course it only works with Suunto dive computers. Below I will take you along how to install the DM5 software on your MacBook in four steps, after which you’ll be able to connect your Suunto dive computer.
Don’t you just hate it when you have that once in a lifetime picture and your underwater camera chooses this exact moment to give up on you!? Well luckily that didn’t happen to me, but still I was annoyed when I found out my Go Pro refused to make any more video’s or photo’s. After some trial and error I traced the cause back to the shutter button. Time to take a closer look and see if I can solve this problem myself
Mares was already teasing with a new release the last couple of days in their dive computer range. Today is the big day and they announced and present the dive computer ‘the Smart’. According to Mares: “Smart replicates the excellent display of the Puck Pro, adding an additional button, buttons repositioned to the side, all packaged into a much slimmer profile.”
