The trip to St Kitts had been hard on equipment. I flooded the Intova and it is officially dead, dead, dead. Not a major expense, but not cheap, either. Wasn't a great camera, but it was handy to take with students or give to students to use and get pictures of them with turtles, moray eels and other sea life. Suppose I need to replace it, but maybe not right now.
I didn't take the Canon 5d Mk ii into the water, but I ended up shorting it out playing with the battery pack. Sad. I broke two cameras and only got one weeks worth of pictures during a 3 week trip to St. Kitts and Nevis. I got no pictures of Nevis, which was the fairer of the two islands.
Dropped the Canon off at the Camera Clinic. Pete estimates he can repair it for $850. I bought it new for just under $2,000. Oh well. I did order a Mk iii and housing, but I need to learn the camera before I take it into the water.
