    Post Rob Galbraith: Nikon Coolpix camera survives six month float on the ocean

    A Nikon Coolpix L18, inside an underwater housing and lost in the sea near Aruba late last year, washed up on the shores of Key West, Florida six months later. None the worse for wear, the camera was still functional and had even self-recorded a video clip of an encounter with a sea turtle partway through its journey. Employing the help of diving and travel websites in his search, its finder, an investigator for the U.S. Coast Guard, was able to track down the L18's owner solely from the content of the photos on its memory card.

    Think it is more of the underwater housing than the camera... I wonder which underwater housing was that.
