Topics I've Started

Canon or Olympus ???

25 July 2011 - 05:41 PM

Hi all,

I have been researching more than i'd like to admit - almost to the point of obsessive!
It'll be my first time diving and snorkelling with a camera in August, going to Bali.

I love photography but as i've never photographed underwater i am worried about taking my DSLR. So i am looking to invest in a digital camera and housing for diving and snorkelling.

I have narrowed my list down to either an Olympus or Canon.

I can only afford (for now) a good camera and housing. If it is something i enjoy then i'll venture into strobes etc etc So on a budget i need a camera with a good flash for underwater and able to take great close ups. All of that just based on the camera and housing, no strobe lights.

So it'll be great if anyone can help me decide on which of the following:

Olympus TG-810
Olympus XZ-1

Canon Powershot S95
Canon Powershot G11 or G12

Your help is greatly appreciated!!!
