  • I have an Olympus digital camera with an under water housing rated for 120ft. It works well enough diving but would it work in the surf? I was contemplating take some pictures in the water with it.

  • Depends on how fast or slow the lag time is after pushing the trigger too actually taking the picture
    Also wide angle lens are often used for water shots

    I also recommend using a waterski life vest and a pair of swim fins, boogie fins if ya got them
    I have only shot video in the water, not stills yet so...


    That said its digital click away it aint film it free baby free!

  • That's good to know someone has tried it. I heard that the housings don't always work because of the constant changing in pressure when you are in surf.

    BB fins are better? I guess it makes sense quicker acceleration.

  • I just hooked up a dope watertight super 8 film camera I need to test out.  I'm wondering if I'll get in trouble for "swimming" in the "surf" area at the N3S though...
