Hi all,
Off to Phi Phi Islands in Thailand and don't have an underwater camera. Wondering if a disposable is going to cut it when taking underwater photos - what's peoples experiences with them?

Thanks in advance,
James

If you have no other option, then a disposable is still worth taking as you will not be able to go very deep with it and therefore have petty good light. The kodak I used was good down to 12m and it gave me some respectable photies. A disposable is always good for the beach and general abuse also.
Better still, get an entry level camera fo about 300 and you won't be disappointed

If you don't fancy buying a waterproof disposable camera, then try this - a housing for standard disposable cameras: http://www.ikelite.com/web_pages/aquashot.html

I've used one before and the pictures were OK - I found the viewfinder crosshairs above the housing to be really useful vs using a waterproof disposable and trying to look at fish through a traditional viewfinder.
