Serina Tsubakihara dropped this camera while scuba diving in Okinawa. An 11 year old boy found it 2 1/2 years later washed up on a beach in Taiwan, covered in barnacles. Battery was still charged and camera still worked! Story: http://www.bbc.com/new​s/world-asia-43579098 (external link).

It was in a waterproof case so that really helped, and makes the story about the camera still working less surprising.

If anything, I'm most impressed that the waterproof housing held up for more than two years.

Great story! 155 miles traveled in the sea (at least!)


Godox/Flashpoint r2 system, plus some canon stuff.
