Nice! Touche, though!

Here's the video I put together from our multi-club expedition to a different part of Montenegro earlier in the summer. Enjoy also!

S'not high quality, sadly, but should be fit for purpose. Big thanks to Carm for uploading it.  :)

Couldn't sleep last night, so 3am found me trawling Amazon for caving books! Came across one called 'Divers of the Dark (Exploration of Caves under Budapest)' about Molnar Janos. The cover picture looked enticing, so I did a quick Google. One of the links led me to a site full of high def technical diving videos............many of which are cave diving oriented.

I've searched this site to see if someone has already posted about this, but couldn't find any references.
Apologies if I've missed any and have repeated anyone's efforts.

This takes you to the first clip (Peacock Springs).
Others are found by scrolling through the thumbnails on the right hand side.
I've only skimmed a few clips, but the quality of them has been excellent so far.

Enjoy!   :)

Excellent Video! Thanx for that, very entertaining. Mel.
Norbert Casteret (Ten Years Under the Earth) and Pierre Chevalier (Subterranean Climbers) were my inspiration to start caving. (And I'm still doing it.) Secretary, Darfar Potholing Club, the Peak District.

I recently uploaded this to utube.  It's a short film I made in the Berger during the 2008 convention.



Enjoy,

Hey Stu your video with the G9 is great.
Which light/s did you use by the way?
Cheers

Hi Nat,

I used my STEN S7+ on setting 4 for the bigger walking passage (420 Lumen) and for the small crawling sections I stepped it down to setting 2 or 3.

Gladded you liked it.

Cheers

Not sure if it's a repost but here's a link to the (arguably well edited and produced, but strangely unusual) Wilder Cave film from the USA:

Part 1


Part 2

Suppose I'd better put these up. My first attempt at filming underwater...The CDG go to Florida  :)

Florida 2009

And a trip earlier this year to France..

France 2010

Rich and I are working on some Uk cave diving footage, beginning with Buxton Water and Ink sumps in Peak.

A mate of mine, Oz, made this on the same France trip of a cave called the Emergence de Temporaire de Cregols - a little visited gem of a cave.

My video offerings to date:

First a trip into Ogof Hesp Alyn - as far as the first sumps.



Next a trip through the sumps to the far reaches of the system.



Now Travel with us into the Ancient Pearl Shaft - Old lead mines.



And finally why not do the CRTT from the comfort of your armchair?
