I am a bit embarassed to admit that I've never scuba'd.Originally Posted by John McCallum
I used to love the watersports, bodyboarding, snorkling, canoeing, even the Xtreme deathsport of floating on an inflatable raft in a swimming pool while tossing back an icy rum drink with a parasol in it (You could put your eye out). I also enjoyed backpacking trips that seemed to draw the wrath of the rain gods without fail.
It seemed prudent to invest in a camera that wouldn't have to be pitched if it got wet. Back then the nikonos was about the only choice and could be found used at a fairly reasonable price.
If you are looking to talk diving and underwater photography, ericr is your man.
