I'm looking for an underwater video camera, but not like a professional one people use for like scuba diving, just a cheap one for my pool. The websites I saw were all like professional ones and you had to call to order and you couldn't online. It's a pain to do that. Anyone got any sites? Continued…

Here I review another old Spectrum classic – Scuba Dive. A simple, yet surprisingly fun little game that sees you trying to amass a fortune in loot from the depths of the deep, dark ocean. Beware the fish!

I am going scuba diving next month and want to buy an underwater digital camera. Any suggestions? I have no experience with taking underwater photos so any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

A couple of things to consider here.
1/ Do you just need it for holiday pics and that’s it?

If so, there are many cheap digitals on the market. Wal Mart even had a 5 MP that was rated to 60 feet a few months back. A Vivitar if I recall and they had it on sale for 70 bucks.

2/ Do you already own a digital camera? Continued…

Ok, I’m sorry but I sat to watch David Blaine on the TV the other night. They were talking about if he’d make it through where he attempts to catch a bullet in the mouth? Well DUH..that was taped and it showed him live..yeah I think he survived the “illusion” of catching a bullet. Now the “dive of death” was a total waste of TV time. He didn’t even dive..he stepped off a ledge. Then there were the wires attached to his back and he “disappearedd into thin air”? Yeah when the camera panned away from him. Was it me or did I miss something?
Please if you know what I was waiting for that I somehow missed, other than the announcer trying to make up stuff because he didn’t know what to make of it, let me know.

it was not supposed to happen like that he was supposed to dive but winid was bad. but bullet catching is dangerous they have a bullet in there mouth and glass panel in front of them they get there assistants to shoot through the glass and miss but they don’t miss sometimes and 12 magicians have died catching a bullet in there mouth.

I know after each dive you should soak it in fresh water. But after that don’t you still get water stains after you pull it out? Should you clean it with windex or some other cleaner?
Thanks.
What cuss word ends in R?
I'm asking a question. I never said that I was going to do something so what action would I be performing that would make me a retard?

Actually, if I were to use a "household" cleaner on my Ike Lite, that would void the warranty. They suggest using a clean soft dry chamois type cloth to dab it after the rinse bucket. I can understand why they suggest that since those housings are also plastic. Some glass cleaners have an issue with plastics.

I want to try to dive into some short film making. What is a good mid line digi cam in the 150-200 range. I would like one that the viewing screen can rotate so I can film myself if needed. Oh yeah, good zooming would be great! Am I looking for too much in a camera at this price range?

You can buy camcorders with mini DV. These will be cheap. Many camcorders have the rotaing screen and optical zoom. Sony DCR-HC series can meet your requirement in this price range. DCR-HC32 may be the best. You better search in the 'ebay.com' for more choice and brands. You chek the price and the specifications. There are plenty of those for you below $200.

Hey, im scuba certified and everything, ive been on like, 25 dives or so. i was considering renting an underwater camera on our dive vacation to the Cayman islands, and i was wondering if its really hard to dive with a camera to deal with? do i have to be more advanced before i try it?

It used to be tough diving with underwater cameras because they were in big bulky housings but thanks to the age of digital photography, both cameras and cam corders have become much smaller and easier to manage.
The bulkiest part these days is the strobes used to create better lighting. Strobes are needed to restore color that is lost at depth. They need to be on strobe arm mounts away from the lens of the camera so they can light the subject rather than the area between the camera lens and the subject. Using an internal flash will reflect back light bouncing off the particulate matter in the water which will show up on the pictures, which is called back scatter.
Make sure that the camera you rent (or buy) is rated for the appropriate depths that you will be diving.

The chips used in digital cameras are more light sensitive than conventional film cameras so without a strobe the pictures can also be good. (better with a strobe than not).
Digital cameras also allow for on the spot editing as you can view the pic while diving and delete it if you aren't satisfied with it.
Here is a link to some of the underwater cameras out there.

I do suggest that you don't bring the camera down on the first dive of the trip. Treat the first dive as an acclimation dive to get any weight or equipment issues worked out.

P.S. You will love Grand Cayman. Make sure that you dive stingray city while you are out there. Stingray City is a definite Kodak moment.

what dive school would you suggest in Phuket ,what dive tours (daily)and expect to pay, my wife doesnt dive so snorkel same trip ?buying a suit any sugestions on where and cost/quality and expect to pay.What currency as USdollar 2.05 to GBP what do you think ? having three days in BKK and 5/6 days in Phuket and back to BKK hopefully Pattaya , in total 17 days open to all ideas and helpful tips , buying to take back, camera, dive watch , gold etc ideas please .

Low denomination dollars always helpful for haggling . If you exchange sterling most Asian currencies float with dollar so if pound strong you generally get good exchange and will reap benefit anyway. Take a mix. Plus Credit card if possible. I always find that exchange rate generally more favourable than exchanging cash and more secure than carrying lots of money. (providing you take normal precautions) All your itinerary will be able to find tailor to make to measure and turn round in less than 24 hours. Thai silk shirts are amongst the best you will find in Asia. If flying to/from Bangkok airport Tax free very good value and saves haggling for expensive items such as dive watches camera etc. Quality should be assured which will not always be the case in Thailand. I travel in Asia lots, buy Tiger Balm. Most essential item in my first Aid Kit.I've done some diving but not in a long time. I have done some snorkeling in Thailand and very mixed. Sometimes heavy seas in Phuket can make water a bit cloudy near beaches so not the best area for snorkeling but worth putting mask and fins in luggage as you may be lucky with conditions. If you are taken out to dive sites your wife may be able to snorkel from boat.
