On a recent kayaking trip to Christchurch Harbour in Dorset I thought it would be great to get some video from the paddle. So I fixed my GoPro to the metal shaft of the paddle and proceeded up the river on a lovely sunny afternoon.
Safe in the waterproof casing I was planning to get some action shots as the camera went under water and all was going well until about half way through I noticed the paddle ever so slightly lighter than before. Yep, it had come loose and dropped to the bottom of the River Stour. It was at about 50°43'40.0"N 1°46'15.6"W for the record should it ever turn up!
It's not top of my list to replace at the moment, might look at other action cam options instead.
