New Technology

A little 4 inch by 2 inch by 3/4 inch waterproof (submersible) 5M digital camera by Pentax. 200 or so. 3 x optical zoom.

And it works.

Note the RIBnet burgee....

Your radar reflector should be fitted upright.Handy camera to keep onboard.

My A frame is not bent - yes, at wide angle the horizon has a funny curvature!!!

It is a Pentax Optio WP.

It does not have a case - all one unit. The zoom does not protrude.

I have had mixed advice on my radar reflector. Southampton Harbourmaster said I could be seen very well on his radio - see earlier posts on the unfortunate incident!

It does not have a case. It is waterproof 'as is'

My reflector (looks like same one) started life in the "correct position" after the first trip out and the bracket broke now looks like your one nice camera by the way

Interestingly (?) enough....one of the first things I did with mine was to plunge it into my Dad's pond to photo his Goldfish before a Heron gets them.
The camera takes good underwater pictures and still works.
Here's the result.
