    Hi all,

    I am currently living in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. Have about 300 dives under my belt. Very easy and relaxing diving out here. Get very spoilt with the calm, warm waters, simple entry and exit points (not to mention the silvertips, hammerheads, mantas etc!) I stumbled across this site looking for a little info on underwater cameras. I would be more than grateful if anybody could point me in the right direction. I have posted a thread in underwater photography>Strobes and lights.

    Cheers,

    Richard

    Welcome to the board!

    I lived 1.5 year in Jeddah, from 6months to 2 years old... My parents say the coral was great, i wish I could remember!

    I passed my open water in Jeddah. Great diving but 8 years in SA just too much. Had to wade for ages to reach the edge but lots of fond memories. Off to Sharm next month for the Advanced. Good diving
