Default Waterproof Scarlet

Hey guys...

Just a thought, but perhaps the Scarlet will be entirely waterproof...That would be a huge advantage for us over in England...If the Scarlet was waterproof, it would mean no more underwater housing, no more raincovers etc.

Just another quirky feature it could have...

just a thought...

A waterproof/water resistant Scarlet would be amazing.

Naah just kiddin', that's a good point, but then again, as far as I know, you can't swap CF Cards in an underwater housing.

If not a totally waterproof camera, something adapts to become waterproof easily. By easy, I mean something that doesnt require a full-fledged water housing. maybe some add-on parts to certain areas. this thing is going to change things for us in the "surf-videography" world regardless but an out-of-the-box all weather/waterproof scarlet would obliterate me.

To make the camera "weather-proof" (meaning resistant to splash, rain, dust, etc...) would not be too hard (except for the CF ports), but forget about making it "waterproof" (as in being able to submerge it under water) - as it would not work with the lens. Once under water, all You focus will go "wild"... For such a filming You can't get away without a proper housing...
