HOOK-EYE CAM MAINTENANCE

maintanance

Basics
Do not let the Hook-Eye Cam sit in the sun too long. Use the Anti-Shock Waterproof Floating Case supplied with it to keep it stored when you are on the boat.
Soak the camera in fresh water for a few seconds after every salt water dive, if possible. Soak it for longer if the salt water had a chance to dry. Dry it with the microfiber cloth supplied in the kit.

O-rings maintenance
It is mandatory to check the o’rings to keep them clean and lubricated.
Wipe off the o-rings gently, being very careful not to stretch it. Use your finger wet with clean water or saliva. Do not attempt to use salt water. Wash the o-ring off if it has sand on it that won’t come off, or if it is really dirty.
Relubricate the o-rings and place the them back in, again being careful not to stretch them.
Do not over-lubricate the o-rings. Just a little bit is fine. Make sure you use appropriate o-ring grease.

Camera Fogging Prevention 
The Hook-Eye Cam has a housing containing 4 desicant patches. Check them and replace to avoid fogging.
Always keep one or two fresh desicants with you.
Don’t let your camera get too hot – keep it cool, out of the sun. Having a wet towel over it at all times is a good idea.
Fogging is more likely to happen when it is hot on the surface, and cold underwater.
