UW-Photography !
Taking photos under water cannot be compared to taking photos on the surface. When I took photos the first time, I realised that  about 70% of the pictures were "rubbish".... It is not very easy doing this underwater. When I had been in Hurghada, I have used the Sea&Sea Mx10-camera with the TTL-strobe. It is easy to use- even for beginners. Some time ago I have bought this camera. You can also buy special accessories like macro-lens, lens-caddy,close-up-lens etc. Check out for further details. I am very happy with this camera and soon I will try  to make some pictures of some lakes here in Germany.... but at the moment it is too cold and I do not have a dry-suit.

When I had been in Teos I have taken pictures with the Sea&Sea MXII-camera (same link). It is more expensive but it offers more possibilities concerning taking pictures. The camera is less easy to use for beginners and people who do not have any knowledge about photography. You can also buy special accessories which are better than those for the MX10.... especially the available strobes and macro-lenses.
