    First "aqueous" pictures (1000T sharky)

    I did on sunday a small "mission" with my 1000T Sharhunter, to test a new digital camera of that sort :



    before taking it along with me in a next diving expedition. The nearest open water from Lyon city is 10 min away, Geneva highway east. It's a natural reservoir and waters come from the Geneva lake by the Rhône. Quite popular on this July suny sunday, 34 deg C (93 F), waters seem quite fresh. We go just snorkeling



    Hey! the weather is so clear today that we can even see the Mont Blanc 70 miles away (15,780 feet, the black arrow below), the highest european peak.



    While I become familiar with the camera functions, I suddently heard : "Hey! Mister, Mister, please!!"... What's going there? A young lady is approaching swimming with energy. "My friend just lost an expensive pair of glasses overthere, please could you help us to recover it?". I just passed a few days ago a PADI qualification "recovery of objects" !!! Excellent application test... I consider the "likely area" and start the search...



    I find first a pair of sunglasses but not the proper one . Gift for the ladies....After about 10 min, I sucessfully catch the right under the general admiration ... A bit proud, I return proceeding to my initial mission ...

    What time is ?



    Water looks clean but really not clear, opalescent, almost fantomatic. One can barely see the tip of the fins...



    Let's go for a small exploration in this way.



    After half a mile of nothing (just a small cat fish...), and 20 min,



    I finally find a nice meadow of myriophylla, a subaquatic plant that is invasive in the US but indigen here in Europe.









    As usual when photographying, I did not see the time passing while shoting pictures and pictures.



    Let's return gently





    My lovely Sub 1000T, really looks in its natural element, happy like a trout in fresh water !

    The case is OK. Needs some training to feel well the shutter and auto focusing. It can be used using a single hand. I had to use it up down using the left hand to catch properly the shutter pusher. I will paint it in red because I confused several time with the on/off button. That Fantasea case is a bit more resistant than usual (7 atm instead of 5 usually). The Nikon L11 is very basic. The sensitivity (800 ASA) is not the best.

    Thanks for the info. Just check their website. They only made for DSLR and Nikon Coolpix. Not for my Canon Powershot.

    Strange policy . May be a special agreement with Nikon? I guess that Ikelite and Canon sells the proper case for your Powershot (A540?)
