Everything in the review about this camera looks good, but how is it in a housing in underwater conditions with a strobe?

That's a good question, we've not evaluated the underwater housing yet, but I can tell you from personal experience with underwater housings that the built in flash usually lacks the needed power to penetrate deep into murky waters, you'll need an external flash, or floodlights, to make that work.

What would be the largest image I could print exceptionally well at 300
dpi with 8 megapixels. Would 22x30 be easy?
