She surfs. She scuba dives. She hosts Yahoo! Sports Minute and American Ninja Warrior, and is an anchor for the Tennis Channel. But Angela Sun’s passion is her first feature-length documentary, Plastic Paradise, and her seven-year quest to document the Great Pacific Garbage Patch.
SeaLife’s new ReefMaster’s Mini is an easy-to-use dive camera that’s waterproof to 200 feet and doesn’t require a housing. This ultra-compact nine megapixel camera shoots stills as well as video. The always-in-focus Reefmaster Mini is enhanced even further by the included external Mini Wide Angle lens which increases the shooting angle by 33 percent and provides a shooting distance of one foot to infinity. A large LCD makes for easy on-camera viewing, and with the bold-red rubber grip and wide-spaced button controls, one-handed operation is a cinch.
Cressi’s Leonardo dive computer earned both a Testers Choice and a Best Buy in ScubaLab’s 2011 Dive Computer Review. Its long list of features includes Cressi’s special RGBM algorithm with three diver-programmable safety levels, an optional Deep Stop function, and a 70-hour or 60-dive logbook. Pair it with Cressi’s multi-color mini-submersible pressure gauge in a rugged, low-profile case, and you have the Leonardo Console2, a gauge combo that simply can’t be beat.
Cressi’s XS Compact/MC9 is designed for all divers, but is especially well-suited to the traveling diver. The hyper-balanced diaphragm MC9 first stage has a small, chromium-plated brass body that’s protected by a special elastomer skin. The XS Compact second stage is ultra-light and comes with a large, easy-to-use purge cover and a dive/pre-dive lever. The reg offers a choice of purge cover colors and is available in yoke or DIN versions.
