The story of a camera that travels 1770km across the ocean

I spent my first 3 hours of yesterdays work reading through a forum thread about a camera that travels across the ocean, and how a good samaritan managed to get the camera back to it’s owner, 1770km away…

You may want to read about the story here.

And you may also wants to read a thread in Scuba Board about how the guy who found the camera find ways to get the camera back to it’s original owner. I must say it’s the best Scuba Board thread I have ever read.

Read about it here.

Oh, during the 1770km trip across the ocean, the camera was bitten by a turtle. Accidentally, the turtle pressed the shutter release button and recorded itself struggling to get the camera off from its body.

Watch it on Youtube here.

Moral of the story: I am going to put my name and address in my upcoming underwater camera housing when I get one. So if it gets lost during my diving, somebody will find it easy to get the camera back to me. You should do it too!
