    Surf Camera

    A way better method of taking a camera out surfing with you is the Surf Camera. It will never be in your way.
    GE just came out with a new waterproof camera. You can by them together as a Surf Camera Combo.

    buy a set of rechargeable batterries for $20 for the old style - or even better buy two sets then you have a spare set ready to go.

    The go pro is very heavy and bulky and the battery life will only last you 20 minutes with video if you are lucky. The digital waterproof cameras like Pentax, Olympus, Fuji will last at least two full hours. GE has a new waterproof camera that will last 3 to 4 hours out in the surf.
    Using these cameras in the Surf Camera case makes it very easy to surf with.

    make sure you check all the specs on the "waterproof" cameras - some of the cheaper ones are only rated to 10' depth (like Fuji Z33WP)

    Don't know about you but I wouldn't trust such a lightweight in heavy surf - fine for the pool but not if there's a chance you'll take a beating

    The 10' rating is over a long period of time. Going down in short squirts twice that rating has no effect on the Fuji z33wp.
    The picture quality of the z33wp isn't all the great but it still way better than the go_pro and unlike the go_pro you can use it on land. It has smile and face detection qualities and much more. The battery life with the z33wp will also last much longer than a surf session.
    You can check out the surfers review on the z33wp here.

    I'd love to see footage from one of these used during some nasty east coast winter swells

    Here some surfer shots using the z33wp. I've got way more photos using this camera but I don't have them organized like I do in this link.
    As you can see the quality of it isn't all that great.
    I'm using the GE G3wp right now and I'm pretty impressed with it. G3wp surfer shots.
    btw - I am in no way a professional photographer. Anyone can do this with their waterproof camera using the Surf Camera case.

    Thanks Scott!

    For a cool website to feed all the egos of we "wannabe" surf photographers.

    The full screen slide show is especially cool.

    Only got one day of this in the beginning of the summer but it's with the Hero cam. Check out like 7 min on that is all that is really decent, it's not edited.
