Light at only 158g, the Rollei X-8 Sports is waterproof up to 10 meters, ready for dirt or cold weather, and is resistant to moisture. Why, it can take a 1 meter drop so you have nothing to worry about if you’ve been to careless.

    Rollei is on a real winner with this camera which is rugged enough to take sailing and keep in the pocket of your wet gear to get the close action of whales and dolphins along with other boats while actually out on the water.

    If you leave it over night in our pocket it will not self destruct like some ot the other “WaterProof” cameras that are out on the market

    Only disadvantage is that they are not well set up yet in North America nad the Europeans get the first chance to buy these units..

  14. Exactly the noesis we was trying to find. Taken to change our outlay habits shortly.

  15. Quality read. I found your site on google and i have your page saved on my favorite read list!
    I’m a fan of your blog. Keep up the good work

    Incidentally, this Rollei waterproof digital camera does NOT have a photo of Chuck Norris on the front- I bought one and it works very well and does not have the Norris photo…..

  17. For every cliche there is an equal but opposite cliche.

  18. Greetings! Quick question that’s entirely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My website looks weird when viewing from my iphone 4. I’m trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to correct this issue. If you have any recommendations, please share. Thank you!
