Destroying a Camera Class 101
Learn to love the Hawai'ian shore line of lava rocks and respect the sometimes fierce waves.
Always carry a waterproof little camera, they can handle the salt spray so well!
Make sure said camera is strapped into a holder and clipped to your shorts.
Get over confident and decide to ignore Step Three.
Gleefully *prance* or in my case shuffle over the rocks for cool looking things in the tidal pools.
Get confident and forget the about the slippery lava.
Step on slick slippery algae covered lava in flip flops and do a lava dive...spread your hands out and let your prize little camera take the brunt of the fall.
But hey, the Pentax Optio W80 still will work. It is just ruined because you can never again set the ISO or figure out what 'mode' you may be in.
Yep, I ruined my second Pentax Optio.
But at least it was only hours before I left Hawai'i.
