Never thought about this until Josh mentioned it in my DC thread but its a great Idea - any body got any suggestions /recommendations.

Ideally would like a digital camera so we can upload easily - or even better would be a case or something to put the F10 camera into.

Wouldn't want to spend a fortune - what do other people do?

May just pay a tenner for a cheap film jobbie and get the prints put on a cd by the printers

That is what I have, a SeaLife 35 mm camera in housing. Around $90 at Ritz. They have a digital version for under $200 USD. Housings can get a bit pricey. Are you just looking for waterproof or are you planning to go to depth?

Only to take pics at DC so no deeper than 1m I would have thought - probably just go for a cheapie disposable job

They can work ok Chris, just make sure that you tell them that it was shot underwater. They should process it differently, removing a lot of the blue.

Came across this one on Amazon, less than $90 USD...could be a bargain for you with the pound.
