Just a quit question, when choosing an underwater camera, do i have to consider the number of megapixels??? or there are other things too, Now im thinking between the Olympus 5.1 pixels or the Sea&Sea 3.3 pixels , can anyone tell me which one is better?, Thanks a lot

I suggest one of the SONY DSC range. I have a DSC-9 4-Megapixel and Housing very need/small packeage that fits into a BC pocket. Totally mazinf results and all menu controls available underwater by button controls. This means you can alter settings, picture size and quality etc whilst diving. Good battery life too.

More pixels = better quality = higher price

MegaPixels aren't everything. The quality of the lens is of equal if not greater importance. Another important consideration is ease of use and reliability. There are really so many factors. Just contact as many manufactures as you can and ask each of them the resolving power of their lenses (not pixels)

As an owner of an olympus 8080wz which takes excellent pics but has a slow write time I would check out how long it takes to write a raw file
Check if u can buy a TTL strobe, or a wide angle lens, is the autofocus good in low light, Do the batts last 2 housr at least, If it cant write raw it needs good whiteballance control, pixels 5+ but the best advice I got was to ask lots of divers what they thought they would upgrade to
