Hi
Wondering if anyone has a preference for which brand of disposable underwater camera to get. I used one once, can't remember what kind and was disappointed in pix.

Thanks, Sue

I bought a Fuji on the ship last cruise and it did a fine job.

Cheers, Neil

hello,

i use kodak. one piece of advise, keep the camara in your carry on. we had a five hour wait for our flight from miami and had the camara in our checked bags and the film suffered heat damage. the pictures came out ok but should have been better.

have a great cruise!

Just an idea...don't buy a disposable. I went to eBay and bough an underwater camera for $20!! Granted it's not the best but it takes GREAT pictures and it's easy to change the film.

Not a disposable but I bought an Olympus 770 for my last cruise and it worked great!

It is digital, with a 1 Gig card it will take 294 pictures.

Hello,
I used a disposable underwater camera from Kodak in 2005 when I had been at the Seychelles. It did a fine job and it was possible to use it even for a depth of about 10 - 15 metres!
A nice aspect of this product was, that althougt you just could use it for 27 pictures, it doesnt causes much garbage because Kodak can use it again, refill it and sell it again.
But Im from Germany and so Im not sure whether its the same with Kodak in the USA.

Fuji, in my opinion, takes the best underwater shots. We always bring 2 cameras with 27 exp. each.

I don't know much about the disposible underwater cameras. But I have a digital camera that has a underwater case sold separately. It is the Panasonic Lumix FX-01. I bought the optional underwater case that Panasonic taior-made for the FX-01 and used them both on my last cruise. I was very happy. The case lets you total control the camera underwater. It may cost allot more than a disposible camera but it was well worth it. During my shore excursion at Trunk Bay, St. John, USVI, I ended up taking allot more photos than I would with a disposable camera. I could have taken a few 100s of photos with my digital camera than just 27 with the disposable.

Frase, My husband wanted to purchase the underwater housing for our digital but I was nervous that it would leak. You haven't had any problems with water leaking in?
