    Default Cam for snorkeling

    Hi,

    Is there something like disposeable cam use for taking photo underwater?
    How much does it cost n how many photo can I take?

    Not worth to get a waterproof casing for my A40 cos very very seldom or never use at all, unless can rent one somewhere.

    Thanks

    Hi,

    I just bought one Fuji Disposable camera at MS Color a few weeks ago for S$19 as I'm going to Pulau Perhentian next month.

    It's waterproof to about 5m camera which comes loaded with 27 exposures Fuji Superia XTRA 800 film.

    From the comments of the people in this forum, they say Fuji Superia XTRA is better than the Kodak MAX in terms of grain.


    P.S.
    The Kodak underwater camera did not state whether it's using MAX 400 or 800. I suspect it might be using Kodak MAX 400 instead of 800.

    Remember to shoot in bright sunlight & clear water conditions.
    For this Fuji camera, to keep within a distance of 1-3m for best results.



    Happy snorkeling!!!
