BD, don't know if John was joking or not and I don't know how often this
happens but while diving in Mexico a few years ago, one of the people on the
trip did just that with a rented camera.  He was stunned when he found out
he should not do what he did.  He got the dubious pleasure of buying it on
the spot with the credit card he used as security.  They suggested he send
it back and tell them what ever story he could come up with.  His wife was
not pleased with his purchase nor impressed with his knowledge of underwater
photography. I saved another person from doom, he brought his film, sans
containers, underwater with him.  I saw it dripping when he was about to
change the film - above ground at least.

My local store had a Nikonos V returned for warranty* because after the
chap changed the film while underwater, it would not work anymore...
* No, he did not get another camera.

This is a joke, right? :-)
