How does one lose camera and its underwater housing?
When it decides to suicide (Flooding) and say forever goodbye to you?
Unlike its predecessor
, mine did not do that today. It decided to un-clip itself and leave me instead. To wander the vast sea.
Yes, I lOST my camera in its underwater housing at Pulau Hantu today!!!! :o(
I was helping with the tape laying and when we finished, I realised that my camera has gone missing from my right hand. Usually, I will hang two clips directly to a string on my right hand glove. But today I forgot to do that. Instead, I hung the two clips to a clip clipping from the string. So I guessed it was the single clip that came loose from the string. As the housing is bouyant, I searched the surface but probably it had floated away with the currents.
Sigh....I think it destined to happen. Why???.....Because yesterday I surf the internet looking at new camera and just before we jump into the water, I was telling JH and the rests that I might be changing a camera or wait till it decides to suicide.
Probably it got upset and decided to leave me lor.
But I hope it got trapped in crevices when it floated lah and someone find it when diving at Hantu (but not very high chance cos I hang the camera away from the reef). So if you happen to find a Canon Powershot A540 with pink sponge-like thingy in it housing, please let me know!?!?
And guess what? HB found a camera with housing at the end of the second dive! But it is not a Canon but an Olympus. Hmmmm....is Pulau Hantu becoming a site to lose camera in?
Sigh.....now I really need to get a new camera and housing. And hope to get them before Jun 13 cos planning a trip to Dayang.
