Ah the gear dilemma....

covering a protest later today, so checking my weather... since it is cloudy as hell. I really do not feel like risking expensive gear and have a water proof point and shoot. There are things the DSLR does, but no protection... debating what camera to take. The radar shows rain off shore... but the forecast says until tonight drizzle risk.

I guess I will have to just take the point and shoot. No use in risking the expensive gear.

1. You can get waterproof housings for Cannon, Nikon and other...

... full-featured gear. Some are guaranteed to 300 feet. How deep are you going?

2. LOL! How deep do you want to go!

My apologies, but that comment really struck a funny bone. City council meeting and all.

But that all said . . . I used to do underwater photography when the earth was invented, but rarely do it anymore, although I did get some nice shots from last years vacation from a rental camera.

3. You can get GREAT shots with a rental camera. Case in point...

Cheap rental camera, Grand Cayman 2001.
