~underwater~

Hey hey!  I’ve received several emails and bloggity questions regarding the underwater digi cam that I used for the pics a couple days ago…SO, I looked up all the info for ya.  :)   First I started here.  I did a search for waterproof cameras and just settled on this page.  From there, I went to amazon and checked out some options.  I wasn’t picky because I wasn’t going to spend much.

I ended up spending $135 for this Intova, a 6 mega-pixel point and shoot camera (WITH optical zoom!) that includes the underwater housing.  The reviews were fine.  The price was right.  :)

Is it easy?  Nope!  It’s pretty much a pain (not easy to work + a 3 second or more delay), BUT with a little luck and practice, I think we’ll end up being friends.   The battery life isn’t so hot.  The screen is impossible to see with the bright sun (and forget it underwater!!!) BUT I really don’t mind.  I’m getting exactly what I wanted — pics of my kiddos swimming — and it’s fun to do something new.

Took the cam out again today to my mom’s pool — it’s MUCH more sparkly than ours AND I had some help with the kiddos (smart move!) because Fella thinks he can swim now and just GOES and goes and jumps and swims without even caring if anyone is nearby.  Good thing Peachy is 100% on her own and confident in the water!

Oooh…if you get a waterproof cam, let me know.  Send me a pic or two.  Have fun!

I love my happy little swimmers.  :)   ~m

    I thought that swimming was a scary prospect for little guys. But when you see these pictures, you find out that they’re SMILING down there under the water.
