Brilliant idea on the sea. Terrible idea in the swimming pool.

A terrible idea in the swimming pool? Just think about the possible uses. Soon we'll be hearing news stories of sleazy college professors and police officers being arrested for taking unsavory underwater photos.

just enjoy what you're doing. You don't need to take photos and video of things you'll never look at again

Nothing is good if you abuse the crap of it. Do not punish majority just because one dumb ass do the wrong thing. Where I live, camera & video are totally banned in public swimming pool. Sad reality!

I'm no perv, but why would you wear bathing suits in public that you wouldn't feel comfortable with other people seeing anyways? I don't see what the problem is.
