CanonScuba Diving Adventure Panama : Panama means 'abundance of fish' in the indigenous language of one of the Indian tribes. In Coiba this is obviously the case. But due to a minor sight at times, the fish is not always clearly visible. Coiba is the largest island of Panama and consists mainly of ancient tropical rainforest. Between 1919 and 2004 the only occupants residing in Coiba were prisoners and their guards. During those years the island was closed for other people, let alone turists. In the meantime this situation has altered but still very few turists visit Coiba. One of the reasons is the fact that the island finds itself in a deserted faraway spot. And what might even be more important is the protected status of the island.
Underwater Housing Review

Panama Scuba Diving Trip
Coiba is a National park, (the island, the reef and marine life) and UNESCO declared the entire Coiba National Park a "World Heritage Site" in July 2005. The Canon EOS 40D is my companion on this trip to Coiba. It is the successor to the EOS 30D. A striking feature of the Canon EOS 40D compared with its predecessor is the introduction of Live View. Also almost inevitable is the increase of pixel amount on a new camera. This is also the case with the Canon 40D. It has the disposal of 10.5 million pixels; its older brother has to settle for 8.2. A more important difference is the faster processor (DIGIC III) enabling to work with 14 bytes. It delivers improved dynamic range and thus nicer pictures.

Hugyfot Housing Review

Hugyfot Housing Review
The Hugyfot 40D housing is milled out of a solid block of High-End sea-waterproof aluminum with the aid of a 5-axis CNC milling machine and computer aided design (CAD). The underwater housing weighs 2649 grams (without camera or port) and has been tested to a pressure of 300 feet depths. This is deeper than the underwater housings of most brands. And because the housing is made of aluminum, less humid will appear inside than in a plastic housing. During our dives we encountered large temperature changes - 33 degrees Celsius on the surface and sometimes only 16 degrees on depth - and I was very happy with the latter feature.
