The Aquapix Waterproof Camera is just a simple plastic camera with plastic lens, but it surely won’t disappoint you! Let me tell you and show you why after the jump!
Last month when all in a sudden my family announce to go on a vacation in Perhentian Island, Terengganu, Malaysia I desperately go out to find a waterproof camera that could snap good, underwater pictures. I’ve heard about the waterproof Aquapix Lomo, and with my tight budget I think the camera would be perfect.
With the help of some friends, I found a gift shop that sell Aquapic Lomo for only RM30 (USD9). With so many colours to choose, I went confused but at the end I picked yellow colour.
This camera is very simple with fixed aperture and focus. Here are some specifications:
28mm lens, f/9
Shutter speed : 1/100
Use 35mm films
This camera comes with a waterproof casing which is detachable. It could dive up to 3 metres. This is some pictures taken during my underwater trip. I use “Lomography X-Pro Chrome 100 ASA”: Both camera and film did not disappoint me.
I took some photos without the waterproof case too. And I think the camera is quite good. I love the plastic lens.
