I was long overdue for a visit to the beach and paid dearly for it. Even with two applications of sunblock, I still managed to fail at protecting myself. I was excited to bring my Nikonos III and GoPro into the water, but not everything turned out as planned. Unfortunately the Nikonos failed to rewind the film properly and it was all exposed to the horrible brightness of the sun before it was ready.
At least the GoPro worked fine for me. The only problem is the ridiculous amount of shake that occurs from holding the camera. My stabilization technique could definitely use some work, but I’m also not sure if other accessories would help with that.
Thanks to Bonnie and Eric for putting up with my usual shenanigans. I really want to go for another swim as soon as all this flooding ends and the beaches clean up.
