To do it right can get VERY expenisve. Like 5 grand.
The cheap way is to use a point and shoot camera with an underwater case available, a hot shoe, and RAW capture.
Manual white balance would really help keep colors normal.
Aftermarket you may want to get some correcting filters, or just shoot RAW and correct the color later. The effect is virtually the same and much cheaper.
Strobes will be very helpfull, but can be costly.
Look for a camera that has a wide angle, like 28mm lens. In the water you will see that 35mm is way too telephoto.

Maybe i'm being overly suspicious, but it looks to me like jasonv and mimi just dropped in to push their website.

Yeah, I would hesitate to click on any link that has "calendar" in the heading.

Good call. Both post #1. Wonder if Jeff can see they are from the same IP address?
