My water proof Olympus 770 SW camera is not working right anymore. Zoom stopped working. All menu buttons are dead. It still takes photos, but only on the setting it is stuck on.
This is my second water proof camera to die. Previous it was the Pentax W20. The Pentax had lots of water in it. The Olympus appears to be dry inside.
Maybe its time to go with cheaper cameras and a water proof housing. At least with a housing you can see water entry. Another bonus is I'll be able to use a camera with a optical eye piece. I'll actual know what the hell I'm aiming at. You can't see anything with those LCDs on a bright day.
Has anyone got some advice for me? Anyone have good and bad experience with Canon water proof housings?
Check this housing and camera out. I'm running out of options.
I was talking with old time local surfer recently and heard some cool history of local breaks. You are looking the General Beauregard, at Confederate Blockade Runner. During large swell huge chunks of this ship are visible. Quite scary to think there is nothing marking this obstacle. You would think boats would run into it. The government must think all local red necks know about sunken Confederate ships!
There is another local ship wreck we surf at. I hope to get photos of that one next.
If you're wondering why all the ship wrecks, my home is near this little historical jewel.
By 1864, Fort Fisher was the largest and strongest fort in the country and was dubbed the "Gibraltar of the South." Unlike many conventional forts, Fisher’s massive walls were made of beach sand.
