We've got a lot of skin divers in the Santa Barbara area and why not? As amazing and beautiful as the land is around here the area below the sea is also pretty amazing. So if you're a skin diver what do you want to do most? That's right, bring some of that beauty home with you so you can surprise and amaze your friends as well as retain those memories for yourself.

To help you bring those images back a company called Liquid Image has created the Liquid Image HD Scuba Series Camera Mask which was released at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. The HD320 Camera/Video Mask allows scuba divers to capture underwater photos and High Definition digital video hands free. The HD video is 720P (1280 X 720) and records at a rate up to 30 frames per second with audio. The camera mode features a 5MP (2560 X 920) still image.

Each camera mask has been tested and certified to a depth rating of 35 meters/115 ft during production. The new model has adjustable light attachments available to help bring out the color and detail that is generally lost while diving below 5 meters.

The camera comes with 64 MB Nand Flash internal memory and a Micro SD/SDHC Card slot allows the memory to be upgraded to 32 GB. Every 1 GB of memory added allows approximately 30 minutes of recorded video. Suggested retail price on the face mask/camera is $215
