>what brand/model camera did you find that works with the aquashot II?

George I just got back from Hawaii and bought an aquashot
there.....the Kodak throw away fits also without any modification...
The funsaver 35 comes with 800 asa not the 200 someone
suggested...only problem is Kodak is discontinuing that model and
replacing it with one that doesn't fit...the local Sam's had several
cases of the old funsaver with a five dollar rebate making them cost
about $6 apiece. I plan on reloading my cameras as I have a darkroom
and also a changing bag. The message that says you will get shocked
on the camera is a joke as they want to keep you out...there is only a
AA battery for the flash. Ikelite also sells cameras for the aquashot
but there film is not as good.. I have been reloading these
throwaways for quite some time as I like to play with their
panoramic..etc.... on land I shoot Nikon F3's and Bronica medium
formats... if you are interested in reloading and are not sure email
me and will be glad to step you through...
