Cool Gadgets 101 – Crafting Waterproofing Your Camera

0

Cameras are just one of many latest cool gadgets you see whipped out throughout the summer, particularly at beaches and pool sides. All it takes, nevertheless, is one negative dunk or even just a random splash of water to turn those great gadgets into very expensive paperweights.

Fret not, though, as you can waterproof the newest gadgets in the security of your personal residence. This setup will even allow you to take images even while you are underwater! Here’s how to set the whole thing up:

Prepping Components

Arrange an airtight Tupperware bag or comparable plastic bag that is just the proper size for your camcorder or camera. Then arrange a drill, two square pieces of plexiglass or entirely transparent plastic along with 4 small bolts and nuts. Arrange some sticky-backed craft foam, expanding foam, silicone sealant and sticking tape also.

Crafting The Case

Initially, position your camera in the plastic bag. Take note of exactly where the lens is positioned inside the case and mark it with a marker. Remember to extend the lens of your camera because this will determine exactly where you’ll put the lens port of your amazing gizmos. Now place the plexiglass over that spot. Drill a hole on the 4 corners of the plexiglass square and secure it firmly in place with the bolts and nuts . Drill out a hole roughly three times the diameter of your camera’s lens on the plexiglass and case. Unscrew the bolts and nuts. Locate the sticky-backed craft foam among the plastic case and plexiglass to act as a gasket. Reattach the plexiglass and bar all cracks with silicone – including the bolts and nuts – to avoid water from seeping into and destroying your great items.

Crafting The Viewing And Access Port

Now take the cover of the container. It will act as viewing and access port for your cool gadgets in 2013. Repeat the prior measures except this time drill out an oblong big enough for your eyes to pleasantly see through at close proximity. Remember: secure both plexiglass and case in place, cut out shape, take away bolts and nuts, apply sticky-backed foam, reattach plexiglass and seal up with silicone.

Securing The Camera

Pack your camera in a plastic box and suspend it in place with adhesive tape. Make sure to extend the lens. Meticulously put in a little bit of expanding foam into the case. Make sure that expanding foam can triple in size, so perform with little quantities and wait for it to dry and expand just before injecting more. Trim the extra foam with a blade or knife . If you do it properly, the foam must make a sound cushion that will hold your cool gadgets in place even when you press down on it.

Setting Up The Shutter Button

Now get a lengthy narrow plastic pipe that is lightly smaller than the shutter button. A truly tiny PVC pipe will operate just fine. Softly take out the foam from the case and place the camera inside the foam. You will have to locate the exact very same place exactly where the shutter button is positioned. It will take a little bit of approximation, so use a pencil to mark out the spot and make it less difficult for you. Cut the cylinder or pipe to just the proper length and softly, softly, press it into the foam until it reaches the place of the shutter button. Cut the pipe once more to fits the edge of the foam. This can be complicated as the most recent gizmos have various shutter button places.

Now just seal all the cracks up with silicone and there you have it – a homespun waterproof camera protector! Now you don’t have to be concerned about your cool gadgets getting soaked, and you can even get a lot of underwater photos if you wish to!
