Everyone in the dive industry is running off to the DEMA (Dive Equipment & Marketing Association) show in Las Vegas this week. Wetpixel will be there too - wandering around and getting the latest info for you o­n underwater digital camera products. If you are there and happen to recognize Eric or Dave at the show, pull them over and let them know you wetpixel (Dave is the really tall o­ne).
