  1. Thanks for the advice, I will definately check them out
  2. I am brand new to underwater photography and I am looking for some advice/opinions on Intova cameras, specifically the intova sports 8, as well as any other brands people have found to have good beginner cameras. I want something that I can use above water as well as underwater, and that has some adjustable settings (shutter speed etc) but not something that you have to be continuously changing settings to get a good picture. And something that is not extremely expensive (am willing to spend up to $500ish on a camera + housing) At the moment I am using a 12MP Fujifilm and it takes wonderful pictures, but I find that if the light isnt quite right, some of the colours become really bright (sorry, not very technical description I know) or the picture becomes "grainy" when taking photos with the sun in the background/corner, or taking pictures where there is a bright light in one corner. Does this happen with some cameras, or is it just what happens when the light isnt very good? I havent printed any of the photos I've taken with it, so maybe its purely a computer monitor issue? Any suggestions as to what brand people have had good/bad experiences with, and websites to check out to find out more information and tips on underwater photography will be greatly greatly appreciated!

  3. Hi I am a beginner to underwater photography, but have had some success shooting on dry land with a small 12MP fujifilm. I was just wondering what everyones opinions were on the Intova sports 8 or intova CP8. I have seen them both in a local photo shop for a reasonable price (including housing). I have seen some photos that have been taken from the intova sports 8 and they look quite good. Has anyone had any problems with them, and are they suitable to be an all round camera (dry land shooting as well as underwater?) I'm looking for a camera that hasnt got a millions different settings for light and shutter speed etc, but I do want a camera that has some variation to its settings and can be used in many different situations. I havent fully researched many brands, and am planning to go to a local underwater photography store to have a proper look into what is available, and hopefully get some much needed advice on where to start any suggestions would be VERY welcome!
