    What's a good camera to take diving? We'll be going to Cancun/Cozumel in December, and I'd like to take some underwater pictures. I don't want one that's so expensive I have to worry about theft though.

    I'll be snorkeling in December, since I won't have my certification by then. When we go back in May 06, I'll be certified.


    Thanks,
    Angela

    If you're just snorkeling then you don't need something that goes below 50 ft. And even when you do get certified, rarely do "beginning" dives go deeper than 50 feet. Most of them stay around 30.

    You might want to confirm this,but I think you can rent camera setups local to were your diving.Not sure how much the cost is.Also some digital have water proof housing that canb be bought for cameras.My Canon S2 has this option.
