Hi Folks, Apr 30
Could those of you with experience doing UW video take a moment to give 
some advice?
I'm a newbie at this and have a modest budget to get started with (about 
$2-3k). I'm hoping to run benthic surveys (%cover, coral diversity, 
urchin abundance) as well as survey fish diversity (perhaps abundance). 
I'd like to have lights as well.  I don't think I need (or can afford) a 
HD camera initially. I'm also wondering about video analysis software 
for a PC or Mac.  I've heard about the Top Dawg 
(http://www.topdawgvideo.com/) but assume many of you have experience 
with other systems that I should also consider. If you would, could you 
email me to discuss?
Thanks, Brad
