The the great advantage of digital cameras are that you can throw the rest away!

Ricky,

How do you keep the camera dry when you are on the boat?

I have just bought a D70 & I don't think it will take a soaking like my old 35mm SLRs did.

Cheers.

Hi Brambles

When I'm not using it it lives in a drybag in its case surrounded by something soft.

When I'm using it.... our boat is very dry unless you're out in high winds & F5 or more, which isnt really camera weather anyway! Usually keeping an eye out for waves & spray and using your body is enough to keep it dry. It wasnt a problem for the ribnet treasure hunt.

Thanks

Hi Ricky

Thanks for your reply. I was planning to do the same as you. I asked the question in the vain hope that you had discovered a camera cape/cover that actually worked! Like the website BTW. I took my PADI open water in Gozo this year & had a great time, but I haven't been diving in UK yet.

All the best.

Brambles.
