Even a waterproof camera needs some help...especially if you drop it in Lake Anna. Knowing this I realized that purchasing my Fuji FinePix XP2000 was not enough. I needed something that would help it float. I chose the waterproof float made by Chums which is now attached to my camera.
It is not enough to have a waterproof camera. What good is it going to do if you drop it in the lake and it cannot float?
Solution: Attach it to something that will help it float. Sure it will not float foreever but it should float long enough for you to rescue it.
It may be that many of you would like me to test this device to see if it really works. Well, it floats. However, I have now attached it to my new camera.
At times I can be gutsy but I don't think this is the time. I feel a bit reluctant to actually dunk my camera in enough water to see if this will really make it float but I know that I do feel more comfortable being down on the dock or out on the boat with this combo then I was before with my other cameras.
If and when my camera ever takes a dive and goes swimming I will be sure to let you know how it works. For now please know that the float floats.
If you spend much time around water you may want to consider investing in both a good water proof camera and a float that will keep the camera from sinking if it does go overboard.
I must admit that I may have selected this float because it matched the colors of my new camera. Hate to tell you that as it doesn't sound very practical but what the heck.
