    2 weeks at CocoView Resort, Apr 9-23. Diving is always good, but this time saw (and took video of) territorial displays by French Grunts and 2 pairs of King Crabs and a very friendly, photogenic octopus.

    Oldbear - I use an Intova Sport HD II video camera. Most shots, greater than about 10-15 feet I use a red filter. The shots in the grass (e.g., octopus, burr fish) have no filter since I was only in about 3-8 ft of water. If I use a light, I also remove the filter, but I don't use the light that often and usually don't even carry it with me on the dive - going small after years of using a dSLR with all the attachements. This camera is a few years old, I think equivalent to the Nova HD they sell now. I also noticed on the Intova web site they have refurbished Sport HD cameras for sale.

    chillyinCanada - I was blessed on this trip!
