    Yes, but who made the waterproof housing?

    And, in an ideal world, the last picture in the camera is of a giant squid.

    Did the camera still work?

    this was local news two nights ago, which I caught only because my show ended and this was the *lead* story.  yep, that squirrel can waterski etc.

    Because I have a rain machine specifically built for parades (as Nash Rambler said in a different thread,) I wonder if the woman in question hadn’t been a pretty blonde white lady how much interest China Airlines would have in the publicity of giving her an all-expense-paid trip to China.  which they’re giving her, btw.  yeah, I know, sour grapes :/  there’s nothing wrong with it, I’m just cynical.

    Kind of amazing that 6 years on we still have the technology to read the surely obsolete media used in that ancient camera.

  7. Canon needs to start making those cases again, damm six years floating in the ocean and the camera looks brand new.  Thats a good tight seal.  Props to china airlines for having a great employee.  Of course the camera is almost worthless because of its age.

      I’m guessing the second picture is before.

      Edit: Nevermind, the dents would suggest otherwise. That’s some case.

      Really?  Maybe in resale terms.  4 megapixels can make decent-sized prints and are entirely sufficient for web images.  I still use my 7-year old A620 in some situations, despite its obsolescence.

    Only Melville Underwater Cameras record pictures of giant squid.
