Articles with the ‘uemis’ tag
I absolutely love my new Dive computer…..Uemis Zurich. $1500–$1600. It’s expensive….but then again, it’s helping keep me alive. I I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a dive computer that will be working with a viewfinder in the deep blue.
It has a solar panel that charges during use which essentially means it will never die.
It has a very bright OLED screen that you can view in any angle underwater. If you have ever used one of the watch style computers the screen is hard to view at certain angles.
It has a wireless tank pressure transmitter that sends tank pressure to the computer to help it calculate all the stuff it does….you can even monitor your buddies air supply if the have a transmitter on and they are nearby.
my dive buddy was able to look over from a few feet away to check depth, he was very impressed and surprised.
The best thing for me about it is the very LARGE very “DuMB” alerts. Since it’s easy for me to get lost in the viewfinder its great for me to look over and see in BIG RED letters….ASCEND! or SLOW DOWN! END DIVE!
Best part is when you get home plug in usb to my laptop and review lots of data and log it.
Interesting to see my air consumption rate and workload change and affect my camera operation….
as expected the slower I breathe the better my shots get…..
i love the challenge of shooting underwater…..exposure, light composition, buoyancy, breathing…..it’s all part of it….
and so is staying safe and staying alive to shoot another day. This is where I think the uemis works best for me. It grabs my attention with it large display and graphics.
FINALLY…..Million thanks to the guys over at Hollywood divers that made the suggestion and let me test one out. I’m now the proud owner of a Zurich thanks to them.
