West Neck Beach OWS: Sunday, July 10, 2011 -- I Test a New Camera

I picked up a new GoPro Hero camera on Saturday -- less than 24 hours ago and was itching to give it a test! Sunday morning dawned bright and clear so I figured there would be a few people from the West Neck Pod in the waters of Cold Spring Harbor. They were there in force and with a fair number of "guests"!

I didn't have a wrist strap so I was confined to just standing in the water and holding the camera in my hand. And, with no screen to view results, you have to wait till you can get to a computer. I did, and here is the result (at least one of the results!). Can't wait to get a wrist strap so I can actually swim and take pictures!
