Pete,

 

Thanks!

 

I infer the +4 diopter was directly on the camera and not on a flip-out holder?

Pete,

 

Very nice!

 

I assume you meant "are" and not "ate" LOL

 

What diopter & holder did you use?

EDIT: Wonder what the skeleton shrimp-like animal is - in the upper left of some of the shots?

Don,

 

Not sure where you'll be on vacation but it seems likely there'd be diving involved?

 

One of our granddaughters started learning snorkeling at Buddy's in Bonaire at age 6. She's now 13 and completed her 100th dive in Fiji last June.

 

I'd endorse Buddy's program 100%, plus the parents get to dive 1/2 day while the kid(s) are at Buddy Ranger camp.

 

My perspective... (No compensation - just a pleased grandfather)

I've used Aircraft Spruce's foam - I think the Divinycell but it could have been another: http://www.aircrafts...us/cm/foam.html

 

It's a closed cell foam, quite buoyant and not very costly. It doesn't compress at recreational depths and can be easily shaped with simple woodworking tools.

 

At 3 or 6 lbs/cuft it doesn't take much to make a pretty good float.

 

Hope this helps,

 

Tom
