We just found out that the underwater camera housing the fits our digital camera is no longer available. So thinking that technology flies quickly, our 3 yr. old camera might be replaced. Anybody with any camera ideas for underwater? :rolleyes:

Try the Canon powershot series. Great little cameras for inexpensive and the housings are rated to 130 feet. The housings new run around $150, the camera can be had at Target for around $199. I got the housing at Best buy also has them on-line. good luck

PATLAF: We have an Olympus that needs a PT018 housing. But since you can now, 3 years later, buy a digital with lots more pixels it sounded ok to upgrade. What an excuse, huh?

I just did the same thing myself...went from a Canon Powershot S200 with 2 megapixels to an Olympus C8080 with 8 megapixels....still have to learn how to use it's a lot more complicated than the Canon, but it too has the underwater casing available.

We are looking, actually, into the Olympus Stylus500 with 5mp because largely it has a 2.5 inch digital viewer, (however no optical viewer) and supposedly has great pictures, and can use it as a camcorder for as long as you have dig. card to support it (up to 1 gig).

Also looked into the Canon Sd500 with 7.1 mp., with a 2" viewer.

I would try e-bay to purchase an underwater camera. I have friends that updated their Sea and Sea. Sold that one on e-bay and purchased a Nikonos 80 for $150. Can't beat that. Everyone upgrades eventually.

I purchased two disposable Kodak underwater cameras. The pictures were great.

RobertE's suggestion of the Canon Powershot is good - excellent package so long as you don't expect SLR performance in difficult conditions. Ditto for the Casio Exilim ZX55 & housing. I've seen very good results obtained with both setups, and have several of these for rental (but only to my own divers).
