Hubby did a basic dive at CTI in 2009 and loved it... So he is taking a course this summer to get certified to do the "bigger" open water dives when we return to Jamaica this fall .... Can anyone recommend a camera that would be good for the "bigger" (deeper) dives?

Going to try to find him one as a surprise. Price is kinda an issue (dont want a 1000 dollar camera!) but Im willing to spend some money for it to cover any dive he may make; bonus would be if its also usable above ground for great shots too ....

(25 ft? 50ft? 100ft? or more) I dont even know how deep they go! Im not going, have a health problem, but would love to see what he sees

Thanks for any suggestions! Would like to purchase prior to July so he can use it during his training in the Great Lakes
