Goodbye Old Friend

My First OlympusLast week I said goodbye to my first Olympus camera, the classic C-5050. I got it back in 2003 and not long after that I got the PT-015 underwater housing.

I got my diving certification in the cold waters of Washington and never dove in them again once I experienced warm water diving. I'm a wimp when it comes to cold water. Even with a dry suit, I just didn't want to deal with it. I dove/snorkeled in the warm waters of Roatan, Cabo San Lucas, Key West, St. John, and Jamaica. I didn't have my camera outfit with me for all of these trips but I did take it to Key West and got some decent underwater shots from it. Not only was it a great set up for diving, but I also used it a few times to keep the dust out of the camera at Burningman. It worked like a charm!

It's a great little camera, but I haven't used it in several years and have found a good home for it. It's now in the hands of a co-worker who plans on taking it diving. I look forward to seeing some of the shots he takes with it.

Here's a few of my favorite shots from the C-5050.
