Water Proof, are you sure?

After the struggle, being so drugged, almost having 0 remaining sick leave credits, I'M SO BACK! What's new, I got sick again. But not reporting to work for 7 straight days- it's all worth it. Thanks to those who looked for me and noticed Ive been missing. Next time Im gone, you know where to find me. Not in Facebook (haha) but in the hospitals. Sulit si Medicard.

Moving on, I finally had the chance to test the DicaPac. First, I had to make sure first it wont leak. I placed a tissue inside the DicaPac. I soaked it in the water, and yes, it succeeded the first test. The tissue didn't get wet. Now it's time for Vincent (the name of my camera) to try it.

I forced my pamangkin na samahan ako magswimming. I needed an assistant to do this. Hi Fate, I know you're reading my blog.

Hhmm, ok. Ang hirap pala kumuha ng shots underwater. First, ang hirap magfocus dahil may waves. Unlike sa normal- controlado mo ang kamay mo para iwas shake. Second, ang hirap i-focus. Tumatama yung liwanag sa screen ng DicaPac which is plastic so nagrereflect yung ilaw. Swertihan tuloy kung nakafocus yung subject ko.

Here's my first attempt of using DicaPac.
All shots are taken below 3-4 feet only. Mahirap magpractice below 6 feet, ok?! I set my camera pala to Underwater Mode.

Btw, I brought some toys dahil my pamangkin cant hold her breath underneath the water so wala akong ibang subject. Im glad madami akong dalang toys.

hello Birdie, sorry I drowned you

I forgot, cats cant swim nga pala

Mike Wazowski is cool

Marvin doesn't need air too!

Finally, a water animal

After 30 minutes, I saw some moist in the DicaPac. I actually didn't bother at first. Pero nung nagsimula ng magkaron ng raster yung camera image ko, it's time to FREAK OUT!

I removed my camera, and yes it's kinda wet. Pinatuyo ko agad, and pinunasan. Kinabahan ako, baka nasira si Vincent. Pero after praying hard, um-OK na din sya.

Round 2, this time I followed Zig's advice to put a masking tape. After some time daw kasi mapapasukan nga ng moist. So nilagyan ko yung edges and everywhere na posible mapasukan ng tubig.

I think it's still not that OK

Nagkaron ulit ng moist at nagka-raster image ulit yung camera. Scary! Very risky na ilubog yung camera after 20 mins. Stop na. Juiceko, buti nawala yung raster ni Vincent pag-alis ko ng DicaPac.

no I wont drown Helen, my voodoo doll

I hope the shots are OK. Ang dami kong blurred and out of focus shots before I came up with the presentable ones. But now, Im having doubts if I would risk Vincent with the DicaPac. Do I recommend it? Uhm, Im afraid not. Mahal ang camera!

I forgot to mention, kelangan i-tapat yung lens sa alloted space para di matakpan yung shot. I let my pamangkin take a picture of me, and notice the black area, yan yung dapat i-sakto mo pa. Pero I think pwede gawan ng paraan yan by placing some styro or something para sakto agad sa lens.

drugged but in 2-piece

Oh yeah, nagpractice shot akong naka 2-piece pa! Btw, since somebody sent me a DicaPac, can also someone send me a new swimsuit? Isa lang kasi 2-pc ko. (--,)

@gilbert,
toys are not mine. sa mga pamangkin ko yan. oh, HELEN is mine.

The Gasoline Dude said...

Haha katakot pala 'yang Dicapac na 'yan. I won't risk it if ever.

Jakey Junkie said...

Wow, I learn new things everyday. DicaPac pala ang tawag sa case na 'yun. I've been wondering how underwater shots were made. :)

bakit disappointed ka kay haley james scott???

manik_reigun said...

mike wazowski rocks!
i think ill be getting that stuff, im convinced.

and no, im not talking bout the 2piece. haha

enrico said...

hmmm, ndi nman namin naexperience yung problems na yun sa bora. the pics look nice too. heidie has been using her dicapac for several times na and her camera's still alive. i would still recommend it. hehe. sayang dko pa rin mahanap yung cable ng digicam para masend ko sayo ung pics. btw, bumili rin kme ng goggles para hindi kme mahirapan mag picture underwater.

alam ko kng bkit ganun ngyari. the dicapac and vincent were not being cooperative kse kagagaling mo lng sa sakit at nagswimming ka agad. hopefully, tuloy tuloy na paggaling mo. kse sayang ang convertible leaves pag ngamit mo pa :9

PUSANG-gala said...

uo nga---bat ganun? meron palang ganun----naka sick leave pero nagtatampisaw sa tubig--hehe

Iyay said...

Okay, mark down for DicaPak! Atleast you were able to test it before the big event right? Hehe!

Cute ng mga TOYS, toys lang! =D

Still sick? or maybe ur just sick in the head.. oh wait i forgot.. ako pla yun! Haha!

Jepoy said...

Roninkotwo said...

Hi Chyng, kaya pala ang tagal mo nawala e nagkasakit ka na naman. Ingat ka..wag ka masyado magbabad sa tubig baka mag kasakit ka ulit..hehe

MarcoPaolo said...

galing ng DicaPac... parang di galing sa hospital ah... :)

dyosa said...

Stumbled upon your blog.

Nice shots. I'm also interested in taking underwater photos but it seems like Dicapac is scary to use. :-)

Enjoy the rest of the week and good to read that you're better.
