More test shots
Got a dive in with Det ALFA yesterday. They were shaking down their gear from all the maintenance they've been doing and in preparation for some upcoming training.
Perfect opportunity to test the GoPro underwater (supposedly waterproof to 100'). The fisheye adapter on the waterhousing is pure genius! As you can see, the camera worked great!
I also found out that you should under no circumstances press any of the buttons underwater (tiny leaks everytime I pressed a button to change the camera functions or activate the shutter). The camera did not suffer any damage, but the potential is there (especially if you go deeper - I only got to 34').
I'll try to test it surfing (maybe tomorrow on the SUP) shortly...
