old young friend. Let me give you all a piece of wisdom that I recently learned the hard way. If you go on a fishing trip called ‘Hit em’ Hard’ and the captain tells you that you should take your bag off and put it in the ‘dry container’, what he really means by ‘dry container’ is a place that will fill up with seawater after he accidently clogs the drainage pipe, soaking you and your friends cameras, bags, wallets and cellphones for over an hour in salty seawater.
Better yet, just never go on a fishing charter with a name like ‘Hit em’ Hard.’
If you’ve ever wanted to know what the Fuji X100 looked like on the inside, without breaking your own apart that is, then you can benefit from James Maher‘s misfortune. On a recent fishing trip, the dry container Maher used to store his camera gear turned out not to be watertight and soaked all of his equipment. Rather than doing what most of us would do (assume the fetal position and cry uncontrollably?) he took it as an opportunity to take the whole thing apart and document the process in photos. The photo above shows the entire camera broken into all of its constituent pieces, but if you’re interested you can see detailed photos of the whole process by heading over to his website.
