New Chums Waterproof Camera Float

 swimming with manatees in Crystal River, Florida. If you've never been quite spectacular and highly recommend it. I would not have room for a house under water, so I brought my little Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-TX1 (point and shoot with HD video.

 It was amazing and I will review in a later post, but I really want to talk about the float kind of cool that I bought to keep it from sinking. I recommend buying a float for any point and shoot camera underwater. These babies are small, but sinking fast. Before the trip, I bought a banana yellow Chums Floating waterproof camera that worked great.

Chums Waterproof Camera Float

Chums are the company that makes the straps that are placed on floating vessels when in a boat. First it was bright yellow so that I could find my camera in the hotel, water, or on the boat very fast. The strap is very comfortable and goes around your wrist with ease.

In water, allowed the camera to float on the surface as it passed back and forth between my wife and I taking pictures of manatees and countless snorkeling our children. The float has a quick release mechanism to separate it from the camera when not needed. However, I just made it all the time, so do not lose it. Overall I would say that this would be ideal for anyone going on a cruise, the beach, or even your backyard pool. The manufacturer claims it is for the cameras of 7 oz or smaller so it's fine for most point and shoot. My entire experience with the product was a week of time diving and swimming smoothly
