    Hi,

    I am thinking of doing some underwater photography in the near future and was thinking of buying a hard underwater case specifically designed for my digital camera?

    Should I also consider a generic soft bag instead? If so can you direct me to some?

    Could you please share any advice, info, tips etc etc for undrwater photography that may be helpful.

    Thanks heaps.

    Well I guess a good start would be to tell us what camera you have.

    Apparently I cannot use the inbuilt popup flash unit on my digital camera with the underwater housing on. There is an extra flash unit (UFL-1) which I assume will be another large expense for something I will probably only use once or twice!

    Do you think a flash is necessary for underwater snorkelling photography?

    Thanks
