In Topic: Olympus C-5000 for a beginner?

14 December 2008 - 11:57 AM

Thanks for the great advise. I somewhat accidentally/on purpose bought 2 UW camera setups (SeaLife 300 $40, and Oly C-5000Zoom w/housing $70). I figured they were cheap enough, and I can give one to the wife. I'll see how comfortable we both feel during certs, and take it from there. We'll be going to the Bahamas, and I wanted to be able to dive, but we're also going to snorkel while there. For now, it'll be 'vacation fun' type photos, just for the memories. As I live on the Gulf, and have a boat and at least 2 friends that dive, I expect to dive fairly frequently. Unless I end up freaking out, which I highly doubt, I hope to be taking 'real' UW pics by summer. Thanks again for the advise!

Thanks for the advise. I took your advise, and picked up a Sealife 300 housing with a Vivitar Vivicam 3705 and accessories. I'm not a diver yet, but the wife and I are going snorkeling in the Bahamas :) next month. I hope this will be decent for my very basic expectations. I paid less then $50US for it, so I think I did ok. I also wanted something cheap and waterproof I could keep on my boat without worrying about it too much. Once I get certified, and get more experienced, I'll upgrade as soon as the wife/banker says I can. :P Thanks again!
