Hi All,

I'm very new to photography and have heaps to learn, I purchased a Nikon D50 slr that I am playing with atm.

My question is this; is the Canon powershot A540 a reasonable camera for point and shoot photgraphy underwater? I have a limited budget and I can get this camera with the WP-DC2 housing here in Oz for about AU$560 for both.

I looked at the possibility of an u/w housing for the D50 but I would rather not for several reasons; cost of housing, required peripherals (flash and housing or strobe)fear of flooding and I really want a simple camera for family functions etc wjthout needing to lug a bulky slr.

Any help or opinions about this camerawould be appreciated and althoughI would love to justifyit, higher priced model suggestions aren't an option for me. thanks in advance.
