On Boxing Day here in Perth, Western Australia we all jumped on my friend Tim's boat, and cruised over to one of the most beautiful islands that Australia knows - Rottnest! I wasn't sure what to expect from my new point-and-shoot camera but I was definitely stoked with the results!
Well it all started when I stumbled upon a Vivitar Underwater Cruise Cam on eBay for 15 bucks. My local processing shop had one for sale for $75 and I had looked at it countless of times but really had my heart set on a KRAB for my LC-A+.

I was not sure what to expect from this basic point-and-shoot plastic camera but I was stoked with the results especially the colours from the under water group shots!
I now have the KRAB and there will soon be a LC-A+/KRAB vs Vivitar Underwater Cruise Cam shoot off!
