December 14, 2011 ......... Happy Holidays!
Santa Story Contributed by David Haas
The holiday season is upon us and Santa Claus is already making his rounds. Did you know he is a scuba diver?
Good thing a few photographers in Stow, OH, had their housings on hand when he made an appearance in
a local swimming pool!
Have you finished your shopping list this year? Need some help? Here are our top 5 recommendations for
Holiday gift giving:
1. Nikon Coolpix L24 Deluxe Package
Know someone who just caught the photography bug and needs a great entry level system? The Nikon Coolpix L24
deluxe package is the ultimate simple point-and-shoot system. Turn it on and take great pictures.
The Deluxe package includes everything you need to get the results you want, including a convenient travel bag.
2. PCm LED Dive Light
The stocking stuffer every diver wants and needs. An amazingly bright beam and 5-hour burn time
makes this light a great companion on any day or night dive. Special circuitry keeps the LED bulb cool
for extended use above and below water, in case your diver is also a camper or outdoorsman.
3. Canon Powershot S100 & ULTRcompact housing
There's a good reason why this combination has become a quick favorite of underwater photographers.
The S100 is truly pocket-sized but packed with loads of features, like full 1080p HD video and the ability to
manually set important camera functions like shutter speed, aperture, ISO and white balance.
4. PRO-2800 LED VIdeo Light
Who isn't shooting HD video these days? You may be surprised how much color is lost even on bright, sunny
day dives. Bring back the true beauty of the reef by shining some extra light on the matter. Compatible
with most video, digital still, or DSLR systems.
5. Quick-Drying Rashguard
Show your favorite diver that you care—protect them from the sun with a soft, quick-drying rashguard. Provides
50+ UV rated protection and available in both long and short-sleeve versions. Great to wear under a
wetsuit during the dive or alone while snorkeling or sitting on the boat.
