Only Used Underwater Once! Scranton Photographer
November 28th

Wow.

That’s all I have to say.

It seems that a Canon EOS 1000D was dropped into the Pacific Ocean in 2010.

The photos are still on the Sandisk Extreme III card. Awesome story.

Actual story: found off the end of a wharf in Deep Bay, BC while I was diving on a job for the harbour. I removed the SD card, cleaned it up, stuck it in a card reader and after being underwater in a corroding camera since August 2010 – it works! Approximately 50 pictures on the card from a family vacation. If you know a fire fighter from British Columbia whose team won the Pacific Regional Firefit competition, has a lovely wife and (now) 2 year old daughter – let me know. I would love to get them their vacation photos 🙂

Go visit Markus Thompson’s Google+ for the whole story.

I guess now you all know what brand of CF cards to get!
