Does anyone have any information on a US certified (UL) intrinsically safe camera to use in potentially explosive atmospheres? I've found a couple with the (EX) designation for Europe, but none currently marketed for US.
I have an Olympus Stylus 720 that is several years old. I bought it to use on kayak trips and have been favorably impressed with the rugged water-tightness of the camera. As an ex-commercial diver, I understand that watertight doesn't necessarily mean gas tight, but with radios, handheld PC's, and lots of other devices made to these standards, why are there no cameras?
