On August 20 Canon announced the arrival of its next generation of advanced and pro-level DSLRs, the 10.1MP Canon EOS 40D ($1.299 body only street price) and the 21.1MP EOS 1Ds Mark III ($7,999 body only, street price). Both of these cameras should be a big hit for underwater photography enthusiasts and pros, especially those who already own Canon lenses and compatible flash systems. In addition to overall improvements in image quality (higher resolution, better noise reduction, and greater dynamic range) and autofocusing performance, both cameras now feature a large 3-inch LCD with a live preview mode that lets you see the image through the lens

New Yorkers explore the depths of the sea in this stunning shuttle wrap execution. Photos: Chris Cassidy I was intrigued when I learned of the new campaign from Westin Hotels to wrap the inside of NYC subway cars with nature themes. It's part of their "This is How It Should Feel" campaign. Fortunately Westin has a website with pictures of the entire campaign, which I must say was brilliantly executed. The agency's involved were Deutsch and MediaVest...

One of our concerned members, Edward Dorson, brought this issue to my attention this week, after he responded to an appeal recently made by underwater photographer Walt Stearns. Somehow the fisheries management groups in Florida have decided that the best way to learn more about the reproductive and other biological aspects of the Goliath Grouper is to enlist fishermen to take 800 of these beautiful creatures over the next 2 years for scientific research. Once popular residents on the reefs in southeast Florida, they virtually disappeared from fishing pressures. But in recent years the Goliath Grouper staged a comeback. As a diver, I take issue with pulling 800 of these magnificent creatures from the ocean. In an era where the large, easy targeted fish are disappearing before our eyes, I'd rather opt to understand less about them and allow them continue roaming the seas. However, the fisheries departments don't see it that way...

A Place Like No Other Raja Ampat is considered by many to have the greatest marine biodiversity of any place on the planet. Recent findings are mind blowing, with approximately 1,000 species of reef fish, 565 species of hard corals, and 700 species of mollusks. In addition, many large pelagics make their home in these waters. Huge schools of jack and tuna, pods of dolphins, turtles and other game fish abound. Mantas, mobulas and even the giant whale shark frequent these waters. With such a prolific marine environment, it is no surprise that Raja Ampat has been nominated to become a UNESCO World Heritage Site...

Martha Tressler wins Wildlife Trusts seal of approval The search for a new 'face' to help promote The Wildlife Trusts' marine bill campaign is over after Martha Tressler's picture of a grey seal was selected by judges at the British Society of Underwater Photographers' annual prints competition which ran alongside the British Splash-in Championship.

Trevor Rees won both the British / Irish and the overseas categories while Peter Ladell took the advanced category.
