Thanks for taking the time to read my ad.
I make and sell a very popular underwater video camera housing I designed called the Nemo 200. The Nemo is ideal for recreational scuba divers that need to take video cameras below to 120 feet and be used in a tough marine environment.
In the last few years I have been repeatedly asked if I could come up with a much smaller and cheaper design for those people that are not scuba divers but merely wanted to protect their cameras and video cameras while they were surfing or fishing or snorkeling. A lot of charter boat captains want a housing to video their fish as they are brought to the boat and kite boarders and surfers and kayak owners wanted something cheap that would work with their cameras.
Over the last two years I have come up with three designs that can be made to fit nearly any small to medium sized camera or video camera. These designs can all be made for less than $15-$20 and should not take much more than an hour or two and they have all been tested to at least 12 feet with no problems.
Each design uses off the shelf items. If the housing or bag design shown in the video is too small for your camera all three designs can be made larger by using a larger container or bag which is readily available. The designs are quite simple and once you watch the construction you will see they make a lot of sense. However, some of the assembly methods used were not simple to come up with and took a lot of time to discover on my own. I think you will save a lot of time watching my video, and if you decide to build your own camera housing you will be very happy you did.
Some of the most fun times of my life have been out on the water. I am guessing you feel the same way. Cameras hate water. Here are three ways to get your camera to like the water and to bring home a lot of great memories on film and video.
My Three Housing designs
The Snorkelbox design has a manual control so you can turn your video camera on and off while it is inside the housing.
The Nemo Jr
The Nemo Jr is a waterproof bag with a lens that will fit many small to medium sized digital cameras and goes to 12 feet. Costs less than $15 to make and the size can be adjusted by using different sized bags. The Brownie
The Brownie is probably the world's easiest and least expensive video camera housing to make. The containers come in many sizes. This design has gone repeatedly to 12 feet and never gave me any problems. I added a small mirror to the outside to help the user see what they are filming by the reflections from their open lcd screeen on the side. There is a nice handle on the other side to help you steady the camera while filming.
If you do make one of my designs and film some video or photos and upload them to the Internet please send me the links and I will add them to my customer photo gallery on my home page. RobbMoffett.googlepages.com
Please take a moment to watch my youtube video . You can see my designs more clearly plus see some video one of my customers took of Whale sharks while snorkeling and taking video with his home made Snorkelbox.
