hi namino and Happy New year !
.. no worries , i let you know more about the Cannon camera when i get into town this week .
from what i remember it was the same size as a standard compact camera , range underwater was apprx 20-30ft . Doesnt sound much but i thought that was enough for surfing shots and because it was small enough i could paddle out with it on a lanyard cord around my neck .The price was reasonable (£100sterling) as all other underwater cameras i had looked at were either much cheaper and not really up to the job or were full on diver type box cameras with big range finders and a price tag to match! (£300min' ).
Obviously a big box camera would be usefull having an exterior view finder , as the Cannon is pretty much the same as a standard quality camera which means you need it against yer face to see what your shooting at .. " that isnt always possible when your half drowning trying to hang on to yer board and trying to get yer buddy in frame !!
I will find out the Model' of the Cannon and post as soon as'
. for the money i thought it was a good buy
