Greatest thing about flea market is that it can saves a lot of money. I found this underwater camera for only 2 bucks.
One day I went to a photo lab to buy some films and I saw this Vivitar UW500 camera for the first time. UW stand for Underwater as it equipped with an underwater casing but I don’t know what 500 really mean. It was a brand new camera still wrapped in the box and cost about 40 dollars. One week later I went to a flea market and found exactly the same camera but without underwater casing ( I don’t really care since I’m not really into any water activities ) cost only about 2 dollars. The condition is perfect despite some normal scratches on the body so I bought it right away without further thinking.
I loaded it with a slide film Kodak Elitechrome EBX 100. I took all the shots in overcast days and the result was awesome as expected from a Vivitar camera. The vibrant and intense colours really amazed me. Corner vignettes also appeared in some pictures and it also cool. I’m really satisfied with the first roll of this camera and can’t hardly wait to load another roll. I’ve never thought that an underwater camera can be so powerful off water.
