Have a look at this. A camera lost off Aruba in the Dutch Antilles floated all the way to Florida, where it was recovered.

That did it! I'm buying a "red Nikon"! What a trip and it didn't leak!! Amazing!
I wonder what model?

It's certainly a Coolpix, and it appears to be one of the mid-range "S" models. We don't know when it was lost or bought though.

Amazing story, but that poor turtle. One can't help but wonder how long it suffered with the camera attached to its fin. Must have been quite frightening for it.

How many (like me) watched all 5 minutes of nothing hoping for a glimps of something? LOL
It's not the camera thaw was red or amazing; it was the Ikelite housing. Ike should make an advertising campaign around this as it is always rumored that the acrylic housing are fragile! ha ha ha.

LOL, yes, Harriette, I watched the whole thing, though after 3 minutes, started to use the fast forward. That poor turtle . . .I still wonder how it finally managed to separate itself.
