Ideal Camera for Ribsters...

Hello Folks

Long time no see. Anyway I've just seen this digital camera advertised and it seems ideal for use on a rib. It is waterproof to 20m and it is also bump proof, both necessary if you are out in your rib and want to get some gret piccys.

It is the 'Sealife ECOshot DC600' and can be seen here: http://www.sealife-cameras.com/cameras/dc600.html

It is a good price for any digital compact, nevermind a truly waterproof one at about £189.00.

No excuses for not having a camera onboard now folks...

Keith (SIB still ready for the occasional nice winter's day) Hart

Hi Keith,

Good looking camera. Could get some decent action shots with that. Looks like its not out just yet but I will be keeping an eye on it.

Best Camera ... Try This

I have to confess I've been really impressed with this, the Olympus 720 SW

http://www.digitalrev.com/en/product...&category_id=6

They're waterproof to 3m, and claim to be shockproof for drops of up to 1.5m. Its got a really nice clear 2.5" screen, 7.1 megapix and more picture modes than you can shake a stick at. Also capable of movie mode (even underwater). IMHO its ideal for a rib - we've had some amazing underwater shots as well as some really good above water and high speed capture piccies as well.

Andrew

Hello

There was a mention of it in this month's 'Outdoor Photography' magazine, where they quoted the price...

You're right about the Hong Kong bit. But their reputation is very good.

I've bought from them (through Ebay), and had a problem. Their response was to send me a full refund (through PayPal).

That may be but sometimes with these companies you don't get the right power adaptors or a manual in english and often the warranties are not valid (unless what you're buying has a world wide warranty).
