The Aqua Pix 35mm Underwater Camera is a toy camera, but it has something special, other than being cheap: its aquatic frame.
I found this camera last summer in ebay and what first that atracted my atention was its frame and its underwater capabilities. There were a lot of colors and different prints available but I bought one with flowers and a pink frame. Too feminine!
It uses 35mm film and easy to use with its 28mm lens and a focus between 1 meter and infinity. Moreover, it has an adjustable cord that is useful underwater. If you lose it, don’t worry! It floats! Don’t dive more than 3 meters or it won’t survive the experience.

The one and only problem it’s easy to scratch the frame. No doubt, it is my new friend in my aquatic adventures. Have fun and shoot!
