:) cheep and good combination is mission impossible... don't waist your time and money, unless you just want to take pictures of yourself bubbeling! :) it sounds that you want to take pictures, then you'll be soon trying top sell your camera! rent one first and try it! myself i feel tha D70 is not enough anymore! a year ago i was more than happy with the Olympus 740 ultrazoom! don't do my mistake !

If tou want to take good quality photos to remind you of your diving then cameras underwater do some very good packages, olympus sp350 in particular.
If you want pro yype photos then cheap wont work
I have an old olympus c4000 and get photos that are reasonable even when a 4 size

I am selling me Olympus SP350 with underwater housing. Its a fantastic camera with loads of manual functions so it's great for learning with.
I'm looking to get 280 for it.

I have a DC500 camera and have been using it since May last year, have taken plenty of photos with it both in this country and Egypt. Have a slight problem with the camera freezing on occasions though, andhave just downloaded the latest software from the manufacturer's website to the camera so hopefully it will work fine. Will test it out soon on a week's diving to Malta. I can e-mail you some pics if you want to see the quality of the pictures, but cannot always guarantee if I captured the whole of the fish? Still learning how to compose the picture, and I am sure tha the fish are just too fast for my reactions.
