I also do not own a proper water-proof camera.
I do however own a old canon eos Rebel XT that is 8 mega pixel and kind of wonky anyway. I was considering removing the IR filter to turn it into an astro-camera, but upon looking at what was involved, including a clean room I think that I may have to nix that idea.
I figured that as long as I toss it into a plastic bag to keep it from getting really-really wet it would be ok. Party on...
So now I have some action shots from the boat!
Begin the album!
