Vacation at Red Sea

The photos were taken at Sharm El Sheikh since 2004 near resorts Conrad, Concord, Lavita and in excursions at Sinai.

A squba wasn't used underwater, only a diving mask. Firstly I used old-fashion film cameras. Those photos aren't interesting. Now I prefer small digital pocket-size cameras. The photos shown are made by
- Nikon cp880 with Ewa-Marine underwater soft box
- Fuji f30, f31 with underwater hard box
- Canon d10 - allweather underwater camera
- Nikon cp4500, p6000 - overwater only
