Camera question........

Given the choices available, do you prefer to use 12, 24, or 36 exposure
rolls or film, and why? Thanks.

Go for the 36 exposure, don't cut yourself short. I would rather have several
shots left than to run one shot short. The lab will charge you a flat fee to
develop a roll of film, it dosen't matter if its 12 or 36 exposures. The bottom
line is you have more to gain by going with the 36 exp. Also buy  film in packs
of 3 or more,  not the single packs (less $)..

If you can wind your own film, you might consider using a thinner
media, and winding 40's yourself and making good friends with
your local developer so they handle it properly.

The best shots ALWAYS come at the end of the roll and the end of
the dive. So start shooting from the inside out and swim
backwards so the critters think you're going back to the boat. It
works every time.

Um, do yourself a favor and use 36. I was in Cozumel and hit the 36th
frame and then a pair of dolphins came by a second later. Too bad i
could not reload UW. Sea and Sea should work on that idea huh?

Anyway - you can't buy 36 exp rools in packs but you can buy them in
"pro packs" which is what pro photographers do. If you buy 20 or more
rolls you get a discounted price.

At my studio I order through UNIQUE photo for film. They are fast,
fast, and they have a catalog. 1.800.631.0300. Get the book and buy
some Kodak or Fuji.

What ever you take it will be wrong!

12,  and as you use the last shot the Manta Ray suddenly arrives.

24  and you finish the dive and have a few shots not taken , but not
enough to go diving again so you change the film and it gets
expensive!

36 you have enough film left to go diving again but as you use the
last shot the Manta, you guessed it turns up <g>

I have been given only one good pieces of advice about under water
photography
"bye more film" give the cost of a minute under water especially some where
warm why not take as much film in the water with you as possible.
OK if you are a pro with multiple cameras may be its different. Given the
cost of the time under water take the biggest roll possible you can still
process a part used roll.
