Olympus Stylus 720 SW

I don’t plan on making a habit of announcing too many new cameras on this blog, but this one caught my eye. The Olympus Stylus 720 SW stands out mainly because it’s waterproof to ten feet and has and it’s shock resistant (supposedly it can withstand drops from up to five feet).

This has mostly caught my eye due to my recent experience at the world’s largest water fight: The Thai New Year festival of Songkran. It would have been such a relief to not worry about every bucket of water thrown in my direction as I was shooting the incredibly fun water fights on the streets of Chiang Mai. Both my cameras managed to weather the storms, but not without causing me a fair amount of stress in the meantime. To have been able to walk into the middle of the fray and shoot with impunity would surely have made for some good shots.

But even without a water proof camera, I think I did okay. See for yourself and check out my photos of the Songkran water fights.
