Diving Wing Beach, Saipan, Northern Mariana Islands

Diving at Wing Beach during the past four months is the best ever. Every dive serves up a amazing number of underwater critters. So far this is my favourite dive site on Saipan. A number of divers have asked what camera, housing and strobe are used in the latest underwater photos. Currently shooting with a Canon G-10 camera in the Canon WP-DC28 housing. The external strobe is a Sea & Sea YS-110a with a fiber optic wire cord to fire the strobe via the camera's internal flash. After 29 diehard years of shooting with a battered collection of Nikonos 35 mm cameras, I finally made the move up to the digital age. Kodachrome 2009 R.I.P.
