Alternative for Underwater Camera

And so I was planning to buy an nnderwater camera for our family trip this coming October. Cympre that's pricey so I thought of buying an underwater case instead for my point and shoot camera. I checked the price, and crap- it costs just as much as my camera! Grabe ang price.

I searched for some alternatives. And I was surprised na meron nga!

this one looks perfect for my Canon Ixus 85

This is DiCaPac. Or short for Digital Camera Packaging??

Whatever! Im just amazed! It claims to be 100% leak proof. I have read some reviews, and OK naman. It is safe to use up to 5 meters or nearly 16 feet deep. Ayos na to for simple snorkling, etc. So how much is it? Just 1350 feysus! Perfect alternative kesa bumili ng underwater camera or the super expensive case.

And of course, meron din for SLR cameras. But I think it's harder to risk an SLR than a point and shoot camera. (--,)

that's a great alternative. but in case you buy an underwater camera, i recommend an olympus.

Nang magpunta ako sa Mt Pinatubo with our company's photo club, may mga dala yung iba na underwater camera aside from their SLRs.

ako din, i will not risk my SLR kasi mahal magparepair. hehehe. Baka bili na lang ako ng Olympus underwater camera (thanks, the donG sa reco).

ayos daw ang mga ganyan pero personally i don't want to. baka masira pa camera ko. i'd rather save up for that canon waterproof camera. ang tanong dyan ay kung kelan makakaipon. hehe.

@jepoy,
good point ha. walang insurance kasi you have to test the product first using a tissue.

@gilbert,

@dong,

Chyng said...

@apple,
so ok lang i-rsik ang point and shoot? haha actually mabigat din ang SLR, no handy underwater.

@fufu,
yeah will try this soon.

Chyng said...

@palito,
around 10K din ang underwater ng olympus, mahal pa din..

@scud,
yun nga, ang hirap makaipon so alternative nalang muna. di ko naman hobby mag water sports to use this.
