Duckworks, the best small boat messing about site on the web.
Flying Flea A good plce to start learning about the Flying Flea airplane designs that will not stall or spin
Backwoods Home- a great self reliance magazine- like Mother Earth News but funkier
Videouniversity For some of the best video advise on the web just ask the wedding videographers a question on Videouniversity, they are almost always helpful and funny unless you are a wedding photographer (just kidding)

I have consistently found more good money saving ideas on this site than any other.

NEMO 200 NEW low cost Underwater Video Camera Housing (#130099538298

A RELIABLE , LOW COST, VIDEO CAMERA HOUSING
Dear eBay buyer,
The NEMO 200 is my third underwater video camera housing design. and is the best one I have made so far. This new design is low cost, low maintenance, very durable, and gets the job done. It is large enough to enable many different video cameras to fit inside. With this housing and nearly any old camcorder you have lying around you can now record all of your dive and boating adventures and share them forever with your family and friends.
Here are some reasons I am excited about this housing.
This low cost housing will allow you to use nearly any small to medium size camcorder to capture the fun and excitement of your next dive trip on video.
Just about everyone has an old camcorder laying around the house or gathering dust in the closet. Now you can put that camcorder back to good use with this low cost housing on your next dive.
Having your own personal underwater video camera housing will truly increase the fun you get from diving and allow you and your family to relive your diving experiences on tape forever!
The NEMO 200 is a smart buy. It is well made from quality marine grade plastics, stainless steel, aluminum, Buna rubber o-ring and acrylic lens. The housing is rated to 120 feet.
Currently, the retail price in dive shops and dive resorts for similar housings is $275-$350. .
The following are the interior dimensions so you can verify that the camera you have will fit. Nearly any small to medium 8mm, Hi8mm, VHS_C or SVHS_C camera made in the last 10 years will fit. Naturally, the housing will take many of the smaller digital video cameras now available too.
The inside dimensions in inches are::
A Interior width or diameter 5 & 3/4"
B Interior Height from camera mounting plate to inside top 5"
C Interior Length is usually 10&1/4" plus or minus a half inch. The length varies due to production method used, if you need an exact and precise length let me know and I can arrange that for you.
There are no exterior buttons, levers or controls to break or go bad.If your camera has a remote control, as many camcorders have, then you simply insert your camera and close the housing and use your remote to start the camera filming right before the dive and it will continue to record throughout your dive capturing everything you see. If you don't have a remote you can start your camera recording before it is locked in place inside the housing.
The Housing comes with a 6 month warranty covering all parts and labor.
