      I can't recall how deep we were at the time, but in some ways it was irrelevant as you can't exactly open a camera underwater and in any case, whilst it is covered in salt water it would be very bad. Any electronics would very quickly become corroded. Even small voltages cause serious corrosion in such conditions in the sea. The Red Sea is worse.

      As for films not rewinding, again this is an unfortunate problem with some film cameras with or without auto-rewind.

      The skill in taking photos is framing. You don't need to have the most hi-tec camera to frame a photograph well.

      Admittedly some cheap cameras are better than others though. An old camera of mine was terrible at brightening the sky in the centre and darkening it towards the edges.

      This is something I found early on. Digital cameras offer a whole new way to photograph sunsets. They can introduce new false colours by enhancing/exaggerating existing colours.

      For me this is akin to changing filters or using a different film or ISO rating to obtain a different result.

      It depends what the size of the finished product is to be. A 1.3 mega-pixel camera can print a reasonable image on an A4 page. The iPhone 4 has a 5.0 mega-pixel camera. This could be more than sufficient for many magazines.

      Here is my gallery if you want a look, just recently started rebuilding it on Flickr after Fotopic went belly up.
