The SeaLife SL321 ECOshot is (allegedly) the world's first underwater camera built into a snorkeling mask. It packs a 5 megapixel camera and is good up to depths of 15 feet. It even has crosshairs in the eye pieces so you can frame up your shot and goes for right around $100.
Sweet. Mine just arrived so I'm gonna head down to the pool and see if I can't score some shots of the college girls swim team in action. I'll post any sweet derriÃ¨res I manage to capture.
UPDATE: So I was the only one in the pool. Which was weird, I mean there wasn't even a lifeguard around. I guess I missed the sign on my way in, but the pool was supposed to be closed for disinfecting. Which explains the floater in the deep end I snapped a pic of.
UPDATE UPDATE: Just got an email from a concerned reader.

Subject: Geekologie Tip - We came up with this shit years ago
This post is bullshit. Snorks came up with these years ago and have been selling them forever in Snorkland. Screw whoever is making this claim, we demand royalties.
Help us get our money,

Thanks Andrew, and no, it definitely wasn't a Baby Ruth
