Blessing in disguise?
We went to look for some shops selling western food and came across this temple where a real friendly monk (Hindu, Buddhist or else) gave us a blessing for good luck HAHA. We took some nice pictures of all the different gods and Fiona and myself with a white dot (from the blessing) on our foreheads. Left the Temple, sat down on a bench for a cigarette, got up, carried on shopping and realised later, we had left (I did) our beloved Lumix Camera behind and lost it. OK, the blessing just did not work. Now we had to look for an alternative camera in all of the 5 fairly decent Camera Shops on the Island for the next few days. We looked at most Cameras on offer, went home, did our research on the Internet (as there was nobody we could ask) and decided on a Nikon Coolpix AW100. Not as much Zoom as on our Lumix, but for that, waterproof (10m) shockproof, temperature resistant and dustproof. We think just a good Camera for travelling, beaches, snorkelling and easy to use. I am showing you some examples of what the camera can do and will keep you updated whether it is worth buying (our opinion) or not. Well you will see for yourselves as all pics from now on are taken with our new Nikon.
I took the video below this morning in our pool. The plastic rose was just to see how good the colours come out under water. I certainly was impressed!!
The Video is normally in HD quality, not as seen here on the blog. It is just to show, the Nikon works fine.
