    [TD]For our January meeting we will have Bret Seymour, AV Production Specialist, from the National Park Service. Bret will be bringing a 3D image system and show us 3D underwater videos that he has shot in our National Parks!

    For the past three years, the National Park Service's (NPS) Submerged Resources Center (SRC) has had a formal partnership with the Advanced Imaging and Visualization Laboratory (AIVL) at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) to create a new path in how our visitors experience the vast underwater resources within our National Parks.

    From the endangered elk horn corals of Virgin Islands NP, to the pristine reefs of Dry Tortugas NPS; the massive shipwrecks of Isle Royale NP to the kelp forests of Channel Islands NP; and the geothermal vents in Yellowstone NP to the submerged B29 Superfortress aircraft in Lake Mead NRA the NPS/WHOI team has brought these resources to the public through the immersive experience of three-dimensional (3D) high definition (HD) presentations.

    Come join us Thursday January 24th at cafe Del Sol. The restaurant needs an accurate head count so,

    A little over a year ago I was visiting with my old friend Jean-Michel Cousteau at the camp I helped him get here on Catalina. He told me that I needed to invest in a 3-D rig to shoot all my future videos, as he was now shooting in nothing but 3-D. Having just invested in a new HD rig (my second), I wasn't that thrilled about investing several thousand $$$ more. However, I talked with a friend who had recently viewed some 3-D UW video and he said it was incredible. Sigh, I guess sometime soon I'll have to surf the "wave of the future."

    Will this show be taken on the road? I'd love to see it if it's ever in the SF bay/San Jose area.

    I've been tinkering with a pair of GoPros in a modified 3D housing.
