Re: I Shorty Waterproof (In Fresh Water)

@granddusk75548 - Yes, since there are no electronic components on the Shorty, it can be used in the water. However, the Shorty does not provide any buoyancy, so you'll want to add a Floaty or other floatation to the camera if you'll be using it in open water.
