Hmm… The Paypal fund is not in yet after the Paypal fund withdrawal last weekend… still waiting…
YES! I got a new camera :p hahaha… As if you will believe me. Actually it belongs to my sis. She bought it at the price of RM1100 last month. The price advertised in the newspapers is RM1199. They only gave RM99 off but gave her many free gifts, a leather camera casing, a bag and xD card(I can’t remember how big is the capacity). It’s quite new and it’s 7.1Mp, 3x optical zoom, waterproof and shockproof. If you are expecting me to do a full review on this camera, you are wrong 😛 I’m not the expert. I’m just posting this for fun and show you that it’s indeed waterproof hahaha… I forgot to copy the photos out from my sis’ camera to show you the photo taken in the water.
Left: The buttons.
Right: The external speaker and microphone appear to be just holes with nothing to shield it against the invading water. Hmm…
Left: On/Off button and shutter button.
Right: Hahaha… Nothing much, just the bottom.
Now the water test. We switch it on and off in there. Took some shoots, play back and flip it around. Also left it in side the water for couple minutes doing nothing 😛 That’s all. Hahaha…
The camera in the water that was switched to preview mode.
DONE! Hahaha… We took it out from the water and switch it on and off to see whether any short circuit will happen or not and glad to say that it’s OK. Remember the hole that I mentioned? I still don’t understand why the water didn’t go in. Maybe it’s just the casing with fake holes just to indicate to your the microphone and speaker are there?
However, you have to bear in mind that even after you wipe the camera dry, it would still emit water. No idea from where. We just placed it on the table and the water just came out from nowhere as if it’s sweating LOL… So, if you don’t want to get your things wet, make sure you store your camera separately after using it underwater. You can bring it 3 meter underwater.
The verdict? It’s waterproof hahaha… No bluff!
What kind of review was that?!?!?! 😛
