You see people often ask me why don’t I take pictures underwater. Number one, an underwater camera capable of going depths of 130 feet is expensive. Number two, I don’t care if I ever see another moray eel or most any wildlife underwater.
I don’t dive to see wildlife like the majority of divers do. Oh I do get a rush going up against a school of thousands of fish but basically I dive for different reasons.
When I posted that video the other day I got excited about getting a camera because the sights and sounds were so realistic.
So I set out to find the best quality camera at a great price. I settled on a Flip Video Camera HD with 2 hour recording time for $117 on eBay.
Next was the case. Ikelite makes the best and only case for this Flip Video. They are the standard of the industry and typically a case can run $300 and up.
I found one for $246 with no shipping and no sales tax.
So while I refused to buy a mediocre video camera for $500, I think I have put together a very good video camera for $363. Plus this case comes with a filter that will assist with color under water.
Expect to joint me in my underwater adventures.
