Yes and no. Will it work? Yes. Will it work OK? IMO no. I agree with misguided angel that a digital will produce way better pictures. But the cost difference may be too much for you to swallow. The Stylus 850 SW is going for $259 on However with the diposable there's the added cost of development and buying a new camera every time you Snorkel. There are other options such as waterproof cases for your non-water camera, but if it leaks your out the money. I prefer to use underwater disposables with built in flash. This improves picture quailty. However I am considering going digital if my girlfriend doesn't stop booking us on these wonderful cruises. Worth a look.

P.S. There is another post on this subject. Try copying and pasteing this in your web browser. Sorry I can't make it a link as I am on a PDA right now.
