    Skin Diving - Super 8 underwater footage


    ForgottenFilm

    Skin Diving. An underwater adventure from the 60s. The original film was shot in 1966.
    This footage was sold as Regular 8mm and Super 8 film as color and black and white version.
    All color copies of this film that I have seen in the last time are strongly reddish.

    This ice diving film reminds me of getting ice diver certified in PA in 1978. One dive in a wet suit and one in a dry suit. The wet suit dive was a bit chilly!

    I started out on US Divers stuff (Mask, regulator, etc), used Scubapro most often, but since the best engineers moved to Atomics I am a big fan of them and don't trust vintage stuff anymore. My first Instructor told me to buy my equipment like my life depended on it, because it does. Technology changes over 40 years, usually for the better. I can't do the things I did 40 years ago, why should I trust my equipment made back then to do what it should?

    This section is about vintage diving ,vintage equipments enjoy section. I also rubber material lover. My doublehose regulators never go to free flow and the stages are not frozen. Every sport has a risk , I've been diving for 41 years
    My La Spirotechnique, Nemrod, Drager, Barakuda, Aqua Lung and others did not leave me half way .
    I dived with them 200+ feet many times ,some of them single stage (La Spiro Mistral ) .
    Now I am going to dive with a Royal Mistral to 124 feet a Russian wreck in the Black Sea. I trust more them new.
    Doublehose never dies.

    I really don't understand your comment about trusting equipment made 40 years ago and its safety and reliability
    This section highlights some of the brilliance of the innovation and engineering behind the products and properly maintained they function perfectly well, often exceeding today's offerings.
