Still shaking my head.  This guy is not the sharpest tool in the shed.

Well, I am sure he is NPS.  That means he has insurance to cover it.

 

Boodyhoo.... live and learn.  Won't make that mistake again, thats for sure.

Evidently, this was a record high tide, and the camera was placed above the "normal" high tide level.


Best,

Dennis, if American (NOAA is supposed to REALLY good at this) tide tables are anything like Canadian tide tables, info on the "record" tide would be readily available.  In BC, we get some incredible tide ranges.  Not quite like the Bay of Funday, but very noticeable.  Also very predictable.

 

If I was doing lots of time lapse photography in tidal zones, a $6-$7 tide table would be a great way to avoid destroying a $4,500 (CDN) camera. 

 

Of course, as Art points out, he probably has insurance.  Just avoid that particular camera store for a VERY long time.  :lol:
