A liquid image?

A liquid image?

Recently I stumbled over this amazing piece of dive equipment. Yes, you're seeing right, an underwater camera build into your mask invented by the good folks of Liquid Image.

The max specified depth is just 5 meters but around now a scuba series should be introduced with a max depth of 35 meters, see picture below.

Although they don't look very streamlined, they're an amazing feat in my opinion and let's hope that this is just the tip of the iceberg of underwater gadgets and tools to come.

I can't see it being good for macro photography though, as the crosshairs on the mask will not line up to where the camera lens is pointing once you get past a certain point.

Hi Dave,

You're right, but it's a start. It's definately a gadget but it also shows what possibilities there will be in the (near) future for underwater afficionados.

So we have a new specialty to give then. Mask photography, master the skill....
