Keeping it watertight

Hazen sent me this photo.  It was the last picture he took before the camera died.  Its pretty interesting what the camera has done breaking up the picture.

The watertight seal failed and the camera is toast.  I had the same thing happen to my first waterproof camera that lasted just under two years.

My current camera, an Olympus Stylus Tough 6020, is just over two years old and functioning fine.  I think the main reason for that is because I leave the battery compartment door open when I'm not on the water.  Keeping the door closed I think keeps the gasket compressed and then it looses its elasticity allowing water into the internal workings.
