Flip camera with housing

Back in the winter I had a thread about my Flip Camcorder with the underwater housing. I was curious as to the quality of the pictures with low light conditions. A few of you asked me to post the results when I found out. Finally took it out with me yesterday. Here are a few still shots from my videos. Sea Robbin and Sea Bass
Blue Claw crab
Some type of garr?
trigger I drilled through the eyes
school of small puffers
togs and rocks

Overall, the quality exceeded my expectations but we also had 20ft vis in some areas.

That would be affirmative. The tip was holding some bass but nothing shaft worthy.

I saw some big bass but the current was really strong and then I came across a huge school of sheepshead. Going back today and tomorrow. I want to get some video of the big sand tiger shark I saw lurking. It's usually about 3/4 up from the beach on the North side just sitting there about 12' down near the rocks.

Re: Flip camera with housing

The video was good. My only complaint is there is no female receiver in the housing for a mount. So I had to film everything holding the camera and it was a little shakey.

The shark was not there yesterday. I was hoping to see one to get some footage. How far down were the sheepshead? I was hoping to see a few. There was a ton of bait there yesterday; mullets, spearing and sardines.

Re: Flip camera with housing

Sheeps were off the top in the inlet. They like the current. Normally if you hug the rocks about 6' down, they will come check you out when you first get out there. You won't get too many chances with them though and if there's other divers around before you, chances are they are gone. They are curious but get spooked easily. Sometimes there's Spade fish mixed in if they are in schools. I normally only see 2 or 3 but last week there were at least 20+ big ones. Never saw that before
