I am about 95% sure that I will be headed to Cozumel this may. I would like to purchase an underwater camera for the trip and was wondering if you could tell me if the sea and sea camera is removable from the waterproof housing. I was looking at one of the sea and sea cameras and one was removable and the other wasn't. Not sure which one is. Removability is not something that I have got to have but would like to have it if there is not much difference in the price. Would you recommend me going with a different brand camera? Just looking for a good quality camera that is not EXTREMELY expensive and the sea and sea mini seemed to fall into that category. Thanks for you help

Both a bunch of Canon's and the fuji F50 are reasonably prices, excellent cameras, with low cost housings available for them. But a good strobe to go with them is pricey (but an ok strobe is not anywhere near the cost).

The mini is a camera that is the case... it is not that bad actually... not to the quality or controls of a F50 or the Canons, but costs less (when you include the case the regular camera's would need)

Yes. The Sea&Sea point and shoots can be taken out of the housing and used topside.

The Mini is not in a housing.

I don't know ehat the sea & sea mini is but I use their 8000G which is a re-branded ricoh. I can shoot on 3 boat dives a day before changing the battery and have been very happy with the results both underwater and on land.

Are you talking about the Sealife Mini? If so, I just got back from Cozumel and tried out my new one I got for Christmas. I really like it. Here are a few pictures.

Yeah, I meant the sealife mini, but I decided to go with the Canon a570is and housing. The camera should be here today but not sure about the housing. Those are great pics capt. ron

Good choice! Enjoy the camera and just play around with it and get to know it! You should be very happy with the camera!
