DUBS? Fill me in. Haven't been to Park in a few years (not a big lake diver). Is there a booth out there all the time. I looked at there website. Never knew. I'm an amateur but I love to take pics.

There is an event going on that day at CSSP. The Dallas Underwater Photographic Society (DUPS) will have a booth there for the event and I will be working the booth throughout the day with a couple of breaks to get in some diving. If you can make it out stop by ans say hello, if you want to get in some dives and practice some photography with us that is cool also. If you need more info just shoot me a PM....

Great day, weather was awesome with clear sky's and the water temps were good. Thermocline at about 24" drops to 76 but that is still workable, did not go much deeper than that.

We only made 2 dives and did not go very far from our entry, really just getting a look around. I dove with another member of the DUPS group that just moved into a Nauticam housing for his D7000 paired with a Zen DP-100 dome so we both had WA set-ups to work with and were on the lookout for similar subjects. Really just playing around and working out settings....

We should be out there, if you want to do a dive shoot me a PM.

If you are wanting to get in some practice with the new strobe I can show you a couple of spots where you should be able to get some photos. If you have any questions on your strobe I should be able to help you out.

Shawn, I forgot to ask, what did you think of the D7000 in the Nauticam housing? I am very tempted to make the jump.......

Bill,

Sorry t hear about the cold, hope you are feeling better. I am sure we will be out this weekend but right now not sure if it will be Sat or Sun.

The D7000 paired with the Naudicam housing is a great combo. Naudicam housings have great features in a small package with great ergonomics. I did not get the opertunity to shoot this setup Sunday but I am sure I can put you in touch with the person if you want to get some feedback.

Bill,

It looks like it will be on Saturday for me this week. I am open for the following weekend if you are going out.
