Has anyone ever used a Intova Camara? I would like to buy my first camera but would like to spend under 300.00. I have seen this brand of camera for 189.00 for the 6 MP camera and housing, waterproof to 180 ft.

Cant tell you much about that camera..

But for another option take a look at the Reefmaster Ecoshot

SeaLife ECOshot 6mp Digital Camera SL-321, Underwater Cameras, SeaLife, SeaLife ECOshot 6mp Digital Camera SL-321 (http://scubatoys.com/store/detail.asp?PRODUCT_ID=SeaLifeECOshotDigitalCamera)

Its around $225 after your 10% and is a pretty solid camera and have seen some great shots taken with it..

What is good with this setup is it lets you addon wideangle lense and strobe..Make sure the intova allows for that!

It was discussed over on SB last spring. Consensus is that the shutter speed is really slow causing blurred images and it eats batteries...plus the second post mentions that there's no underwater settings...??

Anyone heard of this camera??? - ScubaBoard (http://www.scubaboard.com/forums/underwater-photography/174636-anyone-heard-camera.html)

A friend was looking for an inexpensive camera/housing a couple weeks ago so here's two that we found through Adorama. Both are Canon cameras with Canon underwater housings.

The first one at $250 is a 6.2MP Canon camera and housing but the camera is refurbished.

The second option at $327 is 7.1 MP camera. They also have it refurbished for $14 less.

All the u/w pictures in my photogallery were taken with a Canon A620 (6.2mp) in a Canon housing. All except the shark with the remora attached were taken using the on-camera flash.
