    Just like what I read from some review, basically u can't/difficult to use flash underwater. The flash will causes a lot of flash back (is this the right term?) from the particles in the water.

    Haha, you enjoyed the camera and what it can do for you, right? Of course its image cannot beat with some of those well known top quality compact on land. But who cares, when it's down in the sea. WAHAHAHA!

    LOL...the first thing I did when I arrived on Tioman was to get myself into the waters and test the camera and it is really more than what I expected it to perform. Had a good time underwater!

    Just curious, is this normal for the 10s thingy on PNS?

    Strange! Which means u did recording for (640x480) 30fps for 30mins.

    According to the specs, it read (640x480) 30fps for 10s and 15fps for 29mins.

    Below info from DCresource

    Movie Mode

    The Stylus 1030SW has a pretty good movie mode. Assuming that you've got firmware 1.1 or greater, you can record video at 640 x 480 (30 frames/sec) with sound, for up to 29 continuous minutes. Do note that a Type H or M+ xD card is required for this. A 1GB card holds just under 9.5 minutes of video. To save memory card space, you can cut the resolution (to 320 x 240), the frame rate (to 15 fps), or both.
