Under Water Experiment



Sooo I've been wanting an underwater camera or a cheap underwater case... But I haven't had much luck at Walmart (which is really the only place I looked). The only other option I could afford was an underwater disposable... but those run $10-15 dollars and you only get 24 or so exposures...then you have to pay for developing and either get a cd made or scan them to get them on the computer- plus the people who develop them get to see all the outtakes... and some of them were VERY unattractive!

So I got to thinking.....

I was going to stick one of my old digital cameras in a sandwich bag or two and try it underwater (wasn't 100 percent satisfied with that idea either)... but when I got to the cabinet I saw the vacuum seal bags. They worked GREAT... the only thing I had to do was mess with the bags a little so it didn't suck out ALL of the air (the button would get vacuum sealed down! lol)

  1. Wow, what a great idea! That's very creative - and a great pic! I'm surprised the plastic didn't blur or distort the picture.
