Hi

I am looking for a camera for my dad. He is getting into his land photography and although he doesnt do a huge amount fo diving, other than at holidays, I think he would like a camera to take with him.

Therefore my budget is really low for this, prob between 50-100 and would really appreciate any advice on any cameras within this range.

Thanks very much

motormarine 2 film camera from ebay?

unlikely you'll get a digital cam & housing in this price bracket, and if you did, i wouldn't expect a great performer.

don't want to say it, but your budget is most def the limiting factor here.

i've harped on about the fuji f30 and housing before as they are a great combo. you could probs get cam & housing for 200 notes or thereabouts.

Hi, thanks for your reply devligas. I know my budget is certainly the limiting factor but as my dad would only have the opportunity to use this once or twice a year it really is only a camera that would give decent photos. I know that didital camera is not an option so it would just be film camera. I can't seem to find many other than the Sealife SL545 Sportdiver II. any opinions on this camera?

never used or seen one i'm afraid so couldn't comment on quality, ease of use etc. it's a good idea to test the waters on a cheap camera so that whilst you're learning the pitfalls of o-ring procedures you don't go and ruin an expensive bit of kit.
