Hi there....looking for advice on the cost of renting an underwater digital camera. I did a search and noticed that you can rent them at Protech but they don't have a current website so I've no idea of costs. We've tried using the throwaway underwater ones in Hawaii but they didn't come out too clear & we don't want to miss out on the chance to get some great shots of the rays, sharks, etc.

We do have a current website - it's (can't get the search engines to work as they did for the old hijacked site).

We have several 5mp digital cameras (Canon & Casio)in housings for rental @ US$40 per day, which work down to 130'. You get the results on a CD or copied onto your computer, as you prefer, and if you want some basic reprocessing done (to correct blue balance, for example) we can do that for you.

We also sell cheap reusable 35mm film cameras with flash which work down to 95 ft for US$30 (including a 27 exposure film), though you'll find it much harder to get good results from these.

The beauty of digital cameras for underwater use is that you can view your picture straight after you've taken it and take another if you want to. And with our Casios, in particular, you can take 200 pictures on a single dive if you want to.

There's more to getting good pictures than just pointing and shooting. Especially true if you're snorkelling rather than diving. We offer tuition.

Till 5pm unless we have a night dive, in which case it's more like 8pm.
