Clare and I just got home from a very relaxing little holiday in Fiji. We went over to visit my sister and brother-in-law who live there in paradise now as he is an executive chef at one of the large resorts. We caught up with them for a few days and then headed down to the brand new Intercontinental resort and spa, on the ‘worlds best’ listed Natadola beach.
I picked up a cheap underwater housing from here the day before I left to play around with and see if I could get some cool underwater shots. I wouldn’t have trusted the housing enough to put the D3 in it, but I had absolutely no problem putting my old D200 with 20mm 2.8 lens attached. Surprisingly it worked really well and stayed totally dry (even in rough seas), although it was a bit of a hassle to access a lot of the camera functions I use regularly like exposure compensation and ISO. Here’s a few snapshots from the trip, I will try to do a full review on the $149 AUD underwater ‘housing’ in the near future. More photos below the cut.
