I dropped my K3 + FA* 24 in the sea :( :( :( ...
Posted By: timautin, 08-02-2018, 01:55 PM

... and they loved it!

1/800s f/8.0 ISO800 24mm

1/800s f/9.0 ISO800 24mm

1/500s f/8.0 ISO800 24mm

For those interested, I used this cheap waterproof case. I wasn't confident at the beginning, but it's a good product, especially for the price. The plastic glass removes a lot of contrast & colors though, and you need to close it very carefully. I did each time but got several small leaks (I never swam that fast ). Nothing bad, but you need to check carefully at the start of each dive. I didn't dare to put my K1 inside

Fantastic stuff!!

You're a braver man than me... But it's encouraging to hear a realistic opinion on the usefulness of a relatively-low-cost casing, and the limitations so far as watertight operation is concerned.

Nice work - really great results

Really terrific stuff there. I only wish I could get images that sharp on dry land.

Certainly a braver man than me - I'm not sure I'd be willing to take myself down there these days.
