I’m planning a trip late this winter (more about that later this week) that will involve going snorkeling. I wish I knew how to scuba dive, but I don’t, so I’ll settle happily for snorkeling. Anyway, I want to be able to take photos underwater. I don’t really want to buy a separate camera to be able to do that, since I really like both my small point and shoot digital camera and my larger digital SLR. So, I started looking at finding an underwater casing for my small point and shoot camera. I found one for a fraction of what an underwater camera would cost, so quickly ordered it. It arrived in my mailbox on Monday and I left within an hour of opening the package to go swimming in a local river. Of course, I took the camera snuggled inside the waterproof case with me to try it out. The glass that covers the lens area does degrade the quality of the photos some, but I still had fun playing with it. Here are a few shots I took that afternoon.
