    Thanks.

    These pictures were taken using a Canon S70 digital PowerShot in a Canon underwater case (rated 40m). I find the Canon's brilliant as they have lots of easy to use features, and small but still easy to use underwater with underwater white balance and a good wide angle lens which is a must for underwater photography. I've just upgraded to the new S80, which is my 8th digital Canon for underwater photography, so I think this will tell you how much I rate their cameras and can't wait to test the S80 out on my next dive trip to the Bahamas later this year.

    Hope this helps.

    Greg,

    Thanks for the info. Let me know how the S80 works out the next time you dive. My S230 seems to work ok, but I definitely don't think I am getting the vivid colors that you are. Maybe I just need more practice - or an upgrade of the camera. I agree the size and ease of use is why I like my Canon as well.

    Re: How many of you Doxa guys dive ?

    Leisure diver for 15 years but only in tropical waters with acceptable temperatures. (Indonesia: Sumba, Sumbawa, Sulawesi, Irian Jaya) Usually 2-4 dives per month combined with my monthly 10 day stay in Indonesia. My Dad had a Doxa in the early 70's to early 80's. Rediscovered Doxa on the web two years ago. I use a watch only as a backup, to divecomputer, so my divers are 95% land divers but will come along with me into the warm relaxing deep.

    Gotta say I'm pretty impressed, already 50 people on the forum here (so far) who have at least logged a little (or a LOT) of bottom time!

    WOW! I was actually thinking of buying a camera for underwater photography, but now I think I'll have to go kill myself instead...

    Awesome photos!!!

    VERY interesting result !
    thanks to all of you who voted in poll , and I feel very impressed by the number of "real" divers among us : it just prove (if this was necessary) that Doxa watches are REAL dive watches , and I do not think that many forum discussing about dive watches would obtain such a result
    cheers

    Re: How many of you Doxa guys dive ?

    I dive, too.

    Been certified for about 6 years, and have logged somewhere around 50-60 open water dives. I have gone diving in Culebra, Curaçao, Aruba, North Carolina (my best dive, actually), Grenada, and some other places I forget right now.

    The only Doxa I used diving was my Divingstar 600T, but all of my dive watches have at least been snorkeling (except for the newest TGraph).

    Deepest dive was in Grenada, about 180 ft. I wore my Seiko Kinetic Scuba there

If I was in the tropics I would probably take them along but most of my diving is in the UK & Canada. Does anyone else have these concerns?.
    Bob,

    I have the same concerns too--when I dive I just swap the steel bracelet for a Waterborne strap. That way I keep the watch even if a pin fails (which has never happened to me with the Doxa).

    Good luck with the Divemaster rating--hoping to get there by summer of next year.
