Rob Stewart Dies In Florida

We are sorry today… 

Sorry for the loss of a true underwater naturalist and a role model. 

I am sure majority of DiveWithSeaman readers know Rob Stewart as much as I do and respect him for everything he added to our world. 

Well-known documentary “Sharkwater” is a-must-watch film not only for scuba divers, but also for anyone who cares about nature and habitat. If you came here by searching “Rob Stewart” on Google, start to watch “Sharkwater” immediately, if you haven’t already.

Who Is Rob Stewart?

You guys know me.. I like to write about how people “lived” instead of how they “died

So, who is Rob Stewart? 

He is from Canada (Toronto), a marine biologist, film maker, photographer and conservationist. 

Started to use his underwater camera when he was only 13 and became a scuba instructor when he was 18. 

Before we knew Rob with Sharkwater, he travelled the world to take wildlife photos.  [Read more…]

GoPro Hero 5 Black Detailed Review

When I came home from work last week, I saw a note on my door, saying that bla bla bla cargo company weren’t able to find me home, so I must go to their office to take the package! 

GoPro Hero 5 Black BoxI turned back to my car and drove to the cargo office.

What I did this week was to test the new GoPro Hero 5 Black, note all the pros and cons, features, tips for using and etc. to be able to write you a helpful GoPro Hero 5 Black review.

GoPro 5 Release Date

We were waiting for a long time for a new member of the GoPro family.

Today, I got a newsletter e-mail from GoPro.

GoPro Hero 4 Silver--3

I am sure you have heard about the drone GoPro will release; Karma.

GoPro 5 will be able to get mounted on an officially produced GoPro drone.

Their slogan for Karma is “Change is in the air” and I really liked it. It seems, there will be flying GoPros everywhere this season.

You can see the trailer for Karma by following the link here.

And the release date of GoPro 5 with Karma seems to be on 19.09.2016. 

Well, this release is very mysterious. Because there are 3 possibilities we may encounter on 19.09.2016.

  1. Only Karma (drone produced by GoPro) might be released.
  2. Karma + GoPro 5 might be introduced together at the same date (most likely).
  3. GoPro 5 might be a built-in action cam in Karma, so Karma would also home GoPro 5 and these 2 might call Karma.

What can I say?

We are looking forward to meet with it.

Enjoy.

Suunto D6i Novo Review and Comparison

Hello all,

For couple of months, I have been trying the new Suunto D6i Novo to be able to write a detailed review about it for you. I hope you find this review helpful and it can serve you deciding on which dive computer to buy this season.

Suunto D6i Novo StoneFirst of all, if you are interested in purchasing a Suunto dive computer and you stopped by my blog, I advise you to read my “Suunto D6i Review” first, to be able to get an idea about this beautiful dive computer. What I’ll be telling you about in this review will most likely be the cont’d edition of my previous review about Suunto D6i. That because, ammmm… they are almost the same dive computer with “small” changes.

Okay, here we go.

3 months ago, I got my cargo.

I knew it was my brand new Suunto D6i Novo Stone and opened it really fast to see how it look like. [Read more…]

David Bowie: Under Pressure!

I am lucky enough to grow up with the generation of David Bowie and Queen.

When I was a little boy, I had two dreams. They were to become:

  • a rock star
  • a scuba diver

I couldn’t become a rock star (yet:)

But I became a scuba diver when I was 12.

In academic sessions of my scuba diving course, our scuba dive instructor was always talking about “pressure.

She was repeatedly saying “under pressure.

Boyle’s Law, you know. [Read more…]

Best Underwater Cameras of 2015 Voted

Hello all DiveWithSeaman.com fans,

In December 2014, we voted the “Best Underwater Camera of 2015.

A total of 6.742 DiveWithSeaman.com readers have voted in this valuable contest.

The question was:

Which underwater camera/action cam was your favorite in 2015?

Of course this is a general question, we didn’t define any parameters, but what I am thinking is that the results will give us an idea, though.

Nobody would say “Hey! This one is my favorite” for any camera that has known handicaps.

I want to thank every Dive With Seaman reader who voted for this contest.

Okay, I don’t want to make you wait :))

Here is the list of Best Underwater Cameras of 2015 according to 6.742 readers just like you. [Read more…]

Nikons First Action Cam: Key Mission 360

We know how far action cam business came since the beginning of 2000’s.
