I went on a shark dive in the Bahamas, once. It was a thoroughly creepy, but exhilarating experience. There were about five of us amongst twenty or so sharks, and the sharks were much more curious than I would have liked. It was then that I realised that I didn’t have a camera. What if someone got attacked? I’d have no way of getting it on video. That could totally boost my ratings on YouTube. What a bummer!
There are a couple of models, including one with an optical zoom and LCD screen.
The mask records HD 1080p at 30fps and 720P at 60 fps, wide-angle (136 degree) video – plus it can take photos at 12MP. The data is stored on a memory card (up to 32GB). Later, when you get topside, simply plug the scuba mask into your computer with a USB cable. Expect to record 30 mins of video per 1GB of memory. It runs off of 4xAAA batteries.
There is also an optional accessory filter kit that improves the clarity and colour of images on deeper dives (not for shallow water use), but it decreases the photographic quality of your photos. You also need to experiment with the different colours, which might be difficult.
