|The Kodak EasyShare Sport c123.|
I had purchased this cheap little camera last week to take with me on my Kashmir trip. I got my first chance to test its waterproof capabilities when I went out for an early morning run in heavy rains. I wanted to see if it could stand the test of the heavy Goa Monsoons.
The camera has almost no manual settings, and it has no zoom or auto-focus. It's the very definition of point and shoot. I took my first picture of the wet and gloomy road as I started my run.
|Shutter 1/100, f4.5, ISO 360.|
|Shutter 1/200, f4.5, ISO 80.|
In essence, that is the end of the review of the camera. If you have good lighting, you will get decent results. Poor lighting will yield poor results.

|Reasonably decent response from the shutter to capture action scenes.|
|The dark rain filled clouds.|

|Pulling the fishing net in.|
|This is hard work.|
|The net finally rolls in.|

|The circling birds is a good indication that the catch will be good.|
|Lots of fish trapped in the net.|
|Pulling the fish ashore.|
|As expected, a good catch.|
|Fresh catch of the day.|
And of course, took some pictures.
On the way back, I passed by some lovely scenery of rain-filled puddles and tiny lakes with lush greenery everywhere - something we don't see in Kuwait.

I have yet to test its under-water capabilities and I leave that for another post - once I get some opportunity to shoot under-water.
