Flip Cam underwater from Mike Ekey on Vimeo.
I am no paid spokesman for Flip, but I have been enjoying the hell out of my camera since December. It was easy to shoot video when the weather was dry and cold. At first, I mostly annoyed the dog with it and so I never worried too much about damaging it.
But when summer rolled on in, I got too nervous to actually take it to the pool our out into the rain... until I got my water-proof case.
The thing was only $25, too.
The sound quality is terrible since the whole camera is covered in a thick plastic and rubber shell, but the video quality is great — both above and below the water.
It's no James Cameron or Michael Bay action, but it's still pretty awesome by my standards — which I suppose are pretty low anyway... just get ready for a lot of Jaws-inspired videos throughout the rest of the summer.
