I had an "Ion Air pro" camera that the charging plug went bad this week. I used it a lot snorkeling in Salt water. The camera was waterproof without having to put it in another case. I would drop it off a boat with weights and look around out in the Gulf of Mexico. I paid $35 US. for it at Walmart in the clearance aisle. I could carry it in my closed fist and no one knew I was taking pictures. I had it for 6 years. This might be a picture of it, if I did the paste right. It came with multiple attachments for mounting.

I would still like to mount a camera on the boats. One under water moving slow would be cool. How about a bait release system? Lol.
Yes working on cam , I have a few but nothing like the one you had which is perfect for the job,,pitty I not in South Africa I would check all river and creak run offs into the ocean and hunt rubies and gold lol,,
Carpking boat has those 2 buckets on back I use to drop sinker and baits and has a great range of over 700mtrs,,almost endless power since it runs 12 volt motorcycle battery that's stock fitted and perfect candidate for the cam,I'm getting there

You're making me drool. A black light mounted with the camera helps spot the rubies better. Lol.
The rubie mine I visit doesn't allow the use of black light. Here is a couple pictures I took with my phone of some rubies. Second one is with a small black pen light. The cut one is more pure than the others in their raw state.

It doesn't work with gold. Here are a few items I dug up. There is a small nugget in the center.
