The unlost treasure of James Vaughan

I set course for the town of Pickering. My plan was to pick up James Vaughan and then set course in the Eastward direction.
So we did. Then we picked up some BBQ meat and vinegar and then some BBQ gas tanks.
Then we asked some girls for some directions.
Then, after about 2 hours of driving we got lost and asked other people for directions.

It was 20 minutes to 6:00 pm when we finally got to the beach.


YouTube synopsis: Michel and James set off for a perilous journey on an inflatable mat to a local island but face the overwhelming forces of nature such as wind, waves and... well, gravity

Dedicated to Pentax Optio W30

The first camera I owned. The BEST camera I owned!

The camera I use to make this show is Pentax Optio W30. This is one of the best waterproof digital cameras in the stores apart from Olympus Stylus SW 770. The other option you have is to buy a water-resistant camera case for almost the same price and then take that clumsy thing around!


  • WHAT MADE ME BUY: 30 frames per second video (unlike Olympus 770 with only 15 fps)
  • (Of course) Waterproof!
  • Extremely compact, easy to handle
  • A LOT of features that are easily accessible.


  • Only goes down 3 meters under water. Olympus goes down 10 meters.
  • Pictures are slightly grainy. Olympus is smoother and better.
  • Extremely slow with focusing, especially in the dark.
  • Video does not refocus while filming, it will focus on whatever is in the first frame and then start filming and never refocus again. That's why movies done entirely UNDER the water will often be out of focus, because it focuses on god-knows-what-can-see.
