Date for the Diary – January 8th. At our social night we have a talk about Dive Ability – Scuba diving for people with disabilities and disadvantages.

Diveability is run by volunteers, and they are going to to talk to us about how they overcome all sorts of different challenges to enable people with disabilities and disadvantages to scuba dive. So please come along!

Find out how skills can be adapted, experiences enhanced and boundaries removed. What’s it like to buddy or teach someone with a disability? How can you get involved?

Intova’s long history of producing waterproof action cameras culminates with EDGE X: a new standard in high quality Point of View (POV) models with unique features and top performance.  Compact and full featured, EDGE X offers 1080p High Definition video up to 60 frames per second with a 160 degree wide angle lens. This design allows the maximum view angle without the significant distortion found in wider lens angles.  Built in WiFi allows the user to operate and see what is on the viewfinder remotely on a laptop, tablet, or smart phone and also to enable wireless file transfer.  EDGE X supports Micro SD card up to 64 GB (Class 10 required for 1080P HD video).  Intova’s unique and patented Unibody design builds the electronics directly into the compact housing. The housing is constructed of rugged polycarbonate with a rubberized armor coating.  The optically flat glass lens port has a water repellant and anti reflective coating. Its flat design allows seamless operation above or below water. Waterproof to 200 feet, the housing includes buttons for full camera control in any environment.  EDGE X’s high quality LCD screen acts as both a viewfinder and playback monitor. To save battery life, the LCD can be turned off when not in active use.  EDGE X utilizes a standard ¼” tripod thread to fit a wide range of Intova mount accessories.  Boxed set includes EDGE X camera (model# EDGE X), user’s manual mini CD, lithium ion battery, USB cable, float strap, lens cap, anti-glare hood, silicone grease, Quick Start Guide, and Optional Accessory brochure.
