I just put this up on ScubaBoard and wanted to throw it on here as well, this is a great shop that I think every diver in so-cal should check out.
Just to show everyone how compelled I am about writing this I'm on our boat in Newport Beach, CA hijacking someone's wireless network named mom, I hope they're not on SB. I'm down the street from h20 Photo Pros and decided to drop by and see what they're all about.
I ended up talking with Mike Luzansky the owner for about 2 hours past the stores closing time. Over and over his cell rang and each time he put the phone off to continue conversation with me, sorry for keeping you bro. I've got to say that he has by far the most impressive Underwater Photo and Video showroom I've seen. He's even got rebreathers. Undoubtedly he has a setup for everyone amateur, prosumer, and even ultra high-end professional. Some of the gear he's got I've only seen on National Geographic and Discovery. I've also got to say that his pricing is pretty outstanding. I bought a Storm Case from him to replace the Pelican Case I just bought from FilmTools in Burbank for an unbelievable price. Thanks again Mike!
I had my housing in my car, mid way through customizing it, and brought it in for show and tell. We talked about lights and I told him what my intentions are. I didn't get a $4k sales pitch. He actually convinced me that spending less money on a different product would suit my needs better. I wont go on too much longer because I don't want this rant to sound like a sales pitch, just a recommendation to my fellow ScubaBoarders.
Thanks again Mike and next time I'm out here I'm definitely going to come in and waste some more of your time.
