When I start scuba diving I want to show my non-diving friends what's so fascinating about the world beneath the surface. So a bought a Canon IXUS v3 with underwater housing. Soon I realize that a camera with no manually function was difficult to use. So I upgraded to an Olympus C-5050Z with some extra accessories. Nowadays I have my Nikon D300. A great camera, both on land and in water.
