      What!? "..DCS 425 underwater digital camera which can send real time digital images..". Sounds too good to be true, and I'm sure it is. My guess is that this simply means that photos can be easily sent from the field, probably using a small laptop computer and a cell phone (or some other communication device). No way there's a built-in transmitter in this thing. (This was later confirmed by Jim McGarvey, Kodak's lead engineer on the DCS cameras).

      Looks like a Nikon version of the old Canadian made Leicas for the U S Navy. But, really, what is a riot is the armored binoculars the guy is using. Look at the brand! What a hoot.
      Oh and why can't Nikon make a camera now that looks as cool? My D3s are boring in comparison!

      UW = underwater. You shoot tiny wildlife on the reef and the like with a lens like that. Cool looking but not an optimum setup for observation.

      This is probably the coolest thing in the world.
