I have two cameras. My primary camera actually isn't a camera, but a camcorder. The Sony HC7 is an HDV camcorder, plus it takes pretty good 6.1 MP still photos. One of the nice things about the HDV format is that you can grab 3 MP stills from video. The Giraffe Cat was taken as a still, the photo of Snappy's operation was grabbed from video.

My other camera is an Olympus Stylus 770 SW. It is a pretty basic point and shoot, but it is waterproof to 33', shockproof, and crush resistant. I take it places I would be afraid of ruining my Sony, plus it is pocket-sized. The Niger Cat picture I took from inside the tank, I just got the camera and wanted to try it underwater. :) The Hillstream Loach photo I took from outside the tank.

None of the pictures are uploaded at full size, I have very SLOW dial-up internet. :(

I would really like a D50 or D40x, but once you get a couple lenses and a few accessories the cost really gets up there!

D40x doesn't have a commander mode so you either have to buy a wired remote like sc-17 or sc-29, su-800 or a sb-800 to go wireless.

yup that's what sc-17 and sc-29 are. your camera and sb600 will be connected by a cord so you can place you sb600 on top of the tank or wherever you need it to be placed.
