Small and compact, SP1 offers full 1080p High Definition Video with a 140 degree wide angle lens. This design allows the maximum view angle without the significant distortion found in wider lens angles. SP1 supports Micro SD card up to 32 GB (Class 6 or 10 recommended). Intova’s unique and patented Unibody design builds the electronics directly into the compact housing. The housing floats and is constructed of rugged polycarbonate injected with UV. The lens port receives a proprietary UV treatment to increase scratch resistance and reduce reflection. Its flat design allows seamless operation above or below water. Waterproof to 200 feet, the housing includes buttons for full camera control in any environment. (Important: to maintain waterproof seal, be sure to clean and remove debris from O-rings and lightly apply silicone grease before use.) SP1’s high quality LCD screen acts as both a viewfinder and playback monitor. To save battery life, the LCD can be turned off when not in active use. SP1 utilizes a standard ¼” tripod thread to fit a wide range of Intova mount accessories.
Boxed set includes:
Sport HD camera
User manual on mini CD.

When you come to have a mask fitting at St George Underwater Centre, you don’t just pick a colour and check out. When buying your SCUBA equipment, it is important to be fitted correctly, and when we hear that many first time divers buy their equipment online (especially their mask), we get concerned.
The reason is simple. Every face is different and no matter how many demonstrations show you how to measure your face on the internet, there is no way to get a great fit through your browser.
When we fit our clients for a mask, we check for a comfortable fit, we check for clear vision and we ensure that the skirt sits flush with the face. It’s a skill that takes many years of practice but ensures that you walk away with a mask that won’t squeeze, pull, press on the bridge of your nose….or worse, flood.
One of our favourites and a best seller is the Apollo SV-2. This multipurpose dual lens mask features high quality silicone, glass lenses and the choice of clear or black silicone. We find the frame to be solid, and the flexible swing buckles ensure optimal movement when worn. Another plus is the broad range of colours for those who want to look fabulous for the fishes!
The Apollo SV-2 is also available for lens replacment if you require bi-focal or full lens magnification. Lenses are fitted in store and we can cater to a variety of standard prescriptions. Have a chat with our staff about getting these lenses placed in your Apollo mask.
Being fitted for your mask and snorkel is an important step for learning to SCUBA dive and our experienced team fit divers, spear fisherman and snorkellers every day to ensure they have the best fit possible. A good quality mask can last many years when maintained and looked after. The Apollo SV-2 has been in my dive tub for the past 4 years and is in great condition.
The Apollo SV-2 mask retails for $129.00 and is available at St George Underwater Centre for $109.00
When it comes to seeing some of the worst when it comes to dive gear, Kel has seen it all. As store owner of St George Underwater Centre, Kel has serviced it all as well. We sat down with Kel to see what some of the worst offenders are…and how you can avoid them.
How long have you been a recreational SCUBA equipment service technician?
I’ve been a service tech for around 25 years and a Coltri-SUB compressor technician for 6 years.
What brands are you trained in at St George Underwater Centre?
Here at the centre we service recreational Scubapro, UWATEC, Mares, Oceanic, Apollo, Tusa, Dacor, Poseidon and Aqualung equipment. We are also a service and sales centre for Poseidon rebreathers and Coltri-SUB compressors. St George Underwater Centre also service military SCUBA equipment, Breathing Aparatus and we also service UPD (Underwater Propulsion Devices) or Scooters for brands such as Apollo. Myself and the staff here at the centre regularly update our training to ensure we are aware and able to assist with all types of gear.
What are some of the most common problems that you come across when a customer brings in their gear for service?
The one thing we often find is a lack of maintainence; when customers bring in gear that has not been washed properly and has sat with salt water inside for months, when dust caps have not been used or if they have, they have been covered in salt water, things like that. Not many people know about the importance of getting all of the salt water out of your regulator and BCD. We commonly come across is salt water corrosion which is very damaging to your equipment.
Another issue we frequently come across with new divers is when they have allowed their occy to drag in sand and of course, jam the inside with broken shells and sand. Keeping your gear in your personal triangle of your chest will avoid this one.
What do you suggest a diver do to keep their equipment in optimal diving condition?
Basically mainting your gear; keep it clean, keep it tidy and when you finish a dive, take the time to give it a good clean. Let your regulators soak, check their hoses and give them a good shake underwater to make sure no sand is stuck inside. The most important thing to do is the have your gear service every 12 months.
What is the importance of having your gear serviced annually?
Well, with certain brands you have a lifetime warranty if you have your gear service annually. But even if your gear hasn’t been used, or it is used frequently, your gear suffers wear, corrosion and orings will fail over time. We always recommend having your equipment serviced before going on a trip overseas to avoid any chance of your gear breaking down. Above all, a diver needs to remember that their equipment is life support for themselves and their buddy, and so having your gear serviced is very important.
