Whoa can I do that? There's only so much max. speed/aperture that I can play with @ the surface !

I guess it's time to strap on those weight belt and tanks huh...

Default NHL: Time to get certified

Though our member Laz might disagree (he has done some outstanding photography while free-diving), I would say that shooting while snorkeling is a very difficult proposition. If you try to take a shot from the surface, you're going to get an extremely flat image, without color (even the biggest external strobes have a range of about 6 feet). If you free-dive, you'll only have a few seconds to compose and shoot before you are forced to surface.

Sorry if I was a bit opinionated but I'm glad you provided such a good example of how much the off camera flash can improve a photo. I was just trying to present one way that would hopefully give the most bang for the Buck.

Luminary,

Thanks for the plug.

Annie FYI, I now have the PT-010 in stock. Please let me know if you're interested because the supply is limited. One more thing, either way you go I think you'll be thrilled to see what a digicam can do underwater.

Default thank you

Thanks so much! You guys have saved me multiple headaches. I'll have a look at the prices. About the flash issue, I can see why having one would help me take awesome pics - it's a question of budget whether I buy one now or later. I'm currently backpacking in Western Australia and have stopped at Ningaloo! thanks again I'll let you know what I get.

Default int'l shipping

Hi
I'm leaning towards the Canon A40 but am having trouble finding a reseller that offers international shipping! Anyone know a reputable one?

There's really no wrong choice, what you'll lose in the battery department can be make up by the denser CF flash card in the Canon. I thought BH Photo is reputable and ship internationally
