Re: Any chance you'd jump into the water yourself?

If I were the club photographer for a synchro team, I'd be thinking about asking if I could jump into the water and take some unique perspective pictures. Just wear a life preserver or something. LOL.

If so . . . I'd probably grab a camera like the Pentax K50 with its more water resistant lenses.

If you're going in the water, I think a waterproof (dive) housing would be much more appropriate than a weather sealed camera.

Weather sealed does not mean submersible. Drop a weather sealed camera in water and you'll need a new camera. Submerge a camera in a dive housing and you're just using your equipment as it was intended to be used.
