Underwater pics

Rumour has it that some FFF members are spearos. It's time to come out of the closet.

Underwater pics

Post by nikoniko » Mon Jun 01, 2009 9:21 pm

Did a short trip to Cairns last week and went to Green island for the day. Tried my Olympus 3M waterproof camera while snorkeling off the beach for a few hours. Took a heap of pics and some video underwater finding the camera faultless. It still feels weird chucking it in a bucket of fresh water for an hour after the salt.
I got to swim with my first school of trevally ever, even though there were only 10 but what a rush! I added a couple of pics from the semi submarine, there were heaps of fish even though conditions weren't the best.Tried a bungy jump and some drunken sleep walking but thats another story. I hope you like the pics :mrgreen: NIKO

MS I have a cybershot aswell but it wont die either. Now I carry both as the 4MP sony takes a better video and sound than the Olympus in my opion. But the Olympus being waterproof 3M and 1M shock proof was tested when it fell off the fish measuring table at shady barrage. Thanks for the comments :mrgreen: NIKO
