Underwater Camera

Just for fun I decided to bodge together my own underwater camera rig, so I bought a couple of waterproof Pelican cases, an Asus EEE PC netbook, and recycled the webcam I have been using for time lapse videos. After futzing with Linux, I got the camera and the computer talking, and strapped the camera to the side of my boat.
This is what Echo Creek in Banff looks like from the underside of my kayak.



And this is why when one is trying out an underwater camera, one should be aware of the surroundings, and any large snags that might be in the path of the boat or camera.
