how many dives have you done?

Good question. I am a beginner diver. I have only taken one SCUBA trip (last summer), and I have 7 open water dives. I am, however, very comfortable in the water. I basically grew up swimming all the time. Buoyancy control has never been difficult, but I am sure can get better.

Renting a camera may be a good option. But the Fool in me hates the thought of plopping down $50 (or more) every dive for a camera that I will only be renting. I plan to dive 12-15+ times, and that seems like a gigantic waste of money that could pay for a large portion of my camera.

On the other hand, if I wait, the prices on some these things are bound to come down, right??? I will making my final decision this weekend (probably) since my SCUBA trip departs March 30.

Thanks for your help. I do appreciate it.
