I used a disposable waterproof Kodak camera in Australia while snorkeling on
the Great Barrier Reef. The depth limitation in bright sunlight was pretty
severe. Anything deeper than about 4-5 feet was dim and all blue. No colors
at all. To the eye they were clear and colorful fish and corals. So, if you
can't get subjects within 5 feet of the surface, you will probably be
disappointed. Most coral reefs are deeper than that. This was a few years
ago, there may be more sensitive film loaded in them now. I don't remember
the speed.
