Yep, I have been spending my money… again! – This time I have been buying a couple of items in preparation of my vacation to Egypt.
Kodak EasyShare Sport C123
First on the list is the Kodak EasyShare Sport C123 – a 12 megapixel underwater camera that allows you to take pictures 3 meters / 10 feet underwater. I purchased this camera because I had heard about the wonderful sea-life in Egyptian waters around where I will be staying.
I still intend to take my Canon 30d SLR for the more creative shots, but this will be fun to use when I am out snorkeling.
This watch cost me £44.95 from Curry’s UK.
Check out what the manufacturer has to say about this camera below:
Splash! Whether it’s a dunk in the pool, a downpour on the hiking trail, or a spilled drink at the restaurant, life can catch you off your game. Be ready with the KODAK EASYSHARE SPORT Camera / C123.

Casio SGW-100-1VEF watch.
The second on the list is the Casio SGW-100-1VEF Twin Sensor Watch.
Something else I thought would be of use to me when I am away in Egypt, but it will also come in handy when I am practicing my diving in the pool, back home.
The SGW-100-1VEF features a Stopwatch, 5 Alarms, World Time, a built in Compass and Temperature Measurement. The EL panel includes an After Glow feature which illuminates the display for a few seconds after the light button is released.
I see myself using the Compass and Temperature Measurement features the most on this watch. Of course I will be using it as a watch also, who wouldn’t, right.
