Dive Film in HD

By random but thankful chance I stumbled upon DiveFilm HD Podcast in the ITunes Store (click here). The podcast features some of the best underwater video footage out there. Sometimes the narration is cheesy but that is what mute is for. The video is again high definition and wide format. Much of the video is so crisp that you will think your looking out a window. Episodes 6 and 4 are a must see. Frequent readers will now I don’t get all giggly about about animals with a backbone but Episode 1 with footage of humpbacks is truly specatacular. Some screen shots below the fold.
