The Fuji QuickSnap Marine Waterproof works great in a pinch. I had to write this camera review, because I am very impressed with the results of this Fuji one time use underwater camera
I had been planning for this trip to the Caribbean for some months in advance and knowing this coral reef from previous trips I had time to check my under water equipment. Well as it turned out in the rush at the last minutes I forgot my underwater cameras. So with great trepidation and fear I bought a Fuji Disposable Under Water Camera. I was concerned with the quality of said camera and the ISO seems too high at 800 and I thought it would have lots of grain. Well to my great surprise this camera preformed better than I had thought possible. I am sure it helped it was an extremely clear day and no a lot of people were visiting this off season day. So if you are in a pinch and forgot your head and need to shoot in a coral reef or a bath tub and forgot the cameras you know work well under water, give this camera Fuji onetime use under water camera a try. It worked better than I believed possible.

In April of this year I had the chance to test the Petzval Lens and to write a review on it for the German photography forum Kwerfeldein. The lens excited me from the very beginning, at the time it was introduced on Kickstarter. I was afraid that once I had tested the lens, I would want to have one of my own! Well, that’s what happened; a year later, I finally bought my very own Petzval lens.
The great American photographer David Burnett is famous for his unusual photos of sports competitions. He uses a tilt-shift lens to create miniature fakes, or a simple Holga camera to shoot in black and white. To write this tribute, I used my Holga to take some pictures of amateur sport activities around my city. Take a look after the jump.
