Hi,
I recently obtained a well maintained Calypso through e-bay & would like
to know more history of it. Seller does not know history of camera & I only
know it was first underwater camera produced by Jacques Cousteau.

Some information on web shows it was produced in 1968 & Jim Church's
book shows first one produced as early as 1958.

Anybody can tell me more history about it ?? and experience with it ??

A google search for Calypsophot will tell you more. But here are a few links:
