Good for travelers, who count every gramm of the weight they carry. Can be used as a tea-cup, sugar container, packadge for camera in wet or dusty surroundings

Just 2-3 sec. of underwater video in travel revue, will impress your friends

Pour out a sugar and clean it before  putting camera in ! :)


Step 1:

Swich auto focus OFF.  Set it to apr 0,7 - 1 m or other, depending on your intends.  
Something soft around  the camera helps to fix it ..

Step 2:



Do not  use in deep water. (Checked 3 m)
Anyway - most impressive files recorded close to surface, in a good light.

Step 3:

Check for bubles before diving.

infrared remote control doesn't works. It needs open area in between. I just use win move maker (or smth.) to cut a peace o film I need. Thats all. This is a quick-born solution not for professionals...

Great Idea!
If your camera came with a remote control, you could put that in a ziplock bag ad use it to turn the camera on and off.
