SeaLife sure knows how to make durable cameras.
The proof? One particularly barnacle-covered DC1200 camera was found washed up on the beach in Titusville, Florida, and based on the finder’s analysis of the photos saved on its hard drive, the plucky camera started its inadvertent trip somewhere around Grand Cayman.
The finder, identified on SeaLife‘s Facebook page as “Mike C.,” reported last month that the camera had been lost about 18 months ago:
“So we now know the camera took about a 1300 mile trip (around Cuba) probably getting picked up in the Gulfstream and eventually landing on the shores of Florida. 1300 miles in 18 months not to mention any hurricanes it might encounter during the trip, and still functioning perfectly. Very impressive little camera.”
