My Fuji Finepix F700 is knackered. With a trip planned in 4 or 5 weeks time, I need a new camera / housing.

So, budget is an issue. Couple of hundred for the camera and the housing costs what it costs. I plan to do a mix of macro and landscape shots (will also be considering a macro lens).

Over to you good folk,
S.

I have just been down the same road. I wanted a good camera, good housing, but had to limit the budget which effectively ruled out DLSR. I ended up with a Nikon P5000, which has an ikelite housing, and TTL sync cord strobe. Cameras Underwater have just told me the housing has arrived (yippeee... only a week!) but the pics I have taken with the camera so far seem excellent.

The camera itself has a list price of £300, but shopping around you can get a decent deal. i got mine for £250. Housing and strobe was about £700.

If I am brave enough, I may have pics to post after the weekend.
:)
