In Topic: Tips to keep water from gathering on the lens port

Wow,

The spit technique is such a smart and simple fix. Thanks for everyone's input.

I own a Women's Surf Camp in Costa Rica and we shoot a lot of pictures of clients. We have only recently thought about shooting from the water (instead of from the shore). This tip will prove to be very handy.

Thanks again,

In Topic: Surfing cameraman

uisceman and Hani Amir,

I own a Woman's Surf Camp in Costa Rica, and we have been shooting surfing pictures of clients for almost 10 years. We shoot almost exclusively from the beach with a telephoto. We have recently purchased a couple of Go Pro HD 2 cameras and have been having fun shooting surfers from the boards.

Are either of you (or anyone else reading this please) familiar with these little cameras and can they be used to shoot surfers from the water? I would think that the photographer would have to be EXTREMELY close to get a usable shot since the wide angle of the fish eye lens may require a close proximity. Is this a viable option? Are there settings I should consider using on this camera to get the most out of this use? I would appreciate any useful input or suggestions.

Thanks!
