From my experience with them.... Posted by: jackl on Feb-16-13 4:53 PM (EST)
they are only good if you are snorkling or scuba diving.
If you are in your canoe or kayak and you see a good underwater subject, You hold the camera over the side, but then cannot see the view finder or screen, and have to guess where you are aiming it. Nine times out of ten, your subject gets cut off
Then you have to hold it with one hand, and try to push the button with the same hand, unless you are some sort of contortionist.
I had a decent camera, but gave up and just imprint the good subjects in my mind.
Some one needs to invent a camera with the view
finder on the top.
