  1. Alright, so I think I have finnnalllyyy decided. Thanks to everyone who helped me out. :] Although, NOW I just need to decide on the housing. There is one from Ikelite that is $450, which is a little more then I want to spend, but I am willing to do it if the other one is terrible. The other one is the Canon housing for it. Here is the link for the ikelite: http://www.ikelite.com/web_two/can_a650.html and the Canon one: http://www.amazon.com/Canon-WP-DC18-Waterp...6624&sr=1-1 Just for clarification, the other ones say "power shot", while the Ikelite doesn't include that in the title of the camera. That is still the exact same camera, correct? What do you think I should do..? I don't believe that Canon one can have strobes attached to it, right? But the ikelite one can? I won't be able to afford a strobe for at least 3 or 4 months anyways, but... yeah. Sorry if I'm asking really obvious questions.. I'm new to this. :] Thanks a lot!
  2. Alright, so the camera noob has another question.. :] Haha. I have been asking around on a few other forums and I think I came up with the choices between the Canon 650, or 720. I'm just curious if there are strobes that I could at some point buy for them? I tried searching on google, but couldn't find any results. I think I'm leaning towards getting a 650 more, but I would like a few more opinions on it first. :] So any opinions on that? Also, this is the deal I would be most likely getting: http://www.amazon.com/Canon-WP-DC18-Underw.../ref=pd_sbs_p_3 (If you go down you will see it with the camera for $472.97). Would this be a good case, or would the Ikelite housings be better? Would I be able to put on a... (I completely forget what they're called.)... the things that are like zoom lenses things. Thanks! Edit: Please see my new post in this section. :]
  3. Alright, thanks again to everyone for their replies! I have been looking at the Canon 520.. although I found this 720. Instead of 7.1 MP, it has 8 MP, and instead of 4x zoom, it has 6x zoom. Although it is cheaper then the other? Here are the 2 different links. http://www.amazon.com/Canon-WP-DC12-Waterp...5179&sr=1-7 http://www.amazon.com/Canon-WP-DC16-Underw.../ref=pd_sbs_p_4 The price difference definitely comes from the actual camera, but I am not sure why, and I have researched it and it doesn't show anything of why it would be that way. Any ideas??
  4. Thanks a lot for all of your great responses! I'm going to have to do some more research. :] Also, for your suggestions; am I going to have to spend a lot of money on a strobe? (I'm sorry if you included this in your answer, I haven't had a chance to thoroughly read them over.) Will just the flash do until I can save up more money for it?? Also, what is the lowest megapixel you would suggest for underwater photography? Thanks!
  5. Hi there! I have been diving for about a year, and I have decided I want to finally buy a camera. :] I have been talking to someone, and they suggested the Fuji F30. I have researched it, and the camera seems decent in itself, but I want to get another opinion on it. I don't want to spend too much money (I mean like 2,000 or over)... unless am I just being too cheap? Is it impossible to find a decent camera and housing below that amount? Here is what I am thinking of getting, because you can get the camera and housing combined for $950. http://www.amazon.com/Fuji-WP-FXF30-Underw...pd_bxgy_p_img_a Any opinions would be great! Or other fairly cheap set up suggestions would be really appreciated. :] Thanks!
