Here is something that I wish I had on a past trip to the Virgin Islands, where we had a great time snorkeling. Now, snorkeling is a pleasant and fun way to enjoy exploring the waters without the expense and equipment requirements of scuba diving. However, it can still be difficult to take pictures while in the water due to the added bulk of the camera. Well, the Liquid Image 304 Explorer Series 8.0 Megapixel Camera Mask makes taking pictures easier by incorporating the camera right into the swim mask.
The unit is rated to a depth of 15 ft (5m), which should work out fine for most light snorkeling. The lens have integrated crosshairs to help you line up that shot just perfectly. You can even take pictures (3456 x 2304) or video ([email protected]), perfect for recording your underwater explorations and fun.
The swim mask uses 2 AAA batteries, which lasts for 2000 pictures or 2:30 hrs of video time when using lithium batteries. Now you can grab beautiful pictures and video of your snorkeling trips without worrying about dropping the camera. And with Winter coming on more every day, it is nice to think about snorkeling trips in warm places.
Snorkeling (British spelling: snorkelling) is the practice of swimming on or through a body of water while equipped with a diving mask, a shaped tube called a snorkel, and usually swimfins. In cooler waters, a wetsuit may also be worn. Use of this equipment allows the snorkeler to observe underwater attractions for extended periods of time with relatively little effort.
