There was no seperate wash for cameras but there was a camera table that
provided somewhat adequate space for 4 to 5 cameras, not video cameras.

I have dove Cayman Brac and Little Cayman several times and decided to take
my family diving there, 4 divers, 2 non-divers.  Brac Reef Resort is a very
good facility for divers and mediocre for non-divers (not really any place
other than the resort to entertain them).  The rooms were very clean, roomy
and well maintained and the food was exceptional and plentiful.  The food
improved drastically since the last time I dove there.  Most of the night
life occurs at Brac Reef for divers and locals, it seems to be a favorite
watering hole for the residents as well as a favorite for Sunday buffet. 
The diving was very good with great boats and the dive masters Mannie and
Phil were very accomodating and great at finding stuff, particularly for
photography.  One numerous occasions I told them what I was looking for and
they did their very best to find it, most of the time successfully.  The
dive one the Tibbets were really great and what can you say about Bloody
Bay except it's fantastic.  Lots of fish life with some large friendly
groupers, top hats, file fish, puffers,loads of French and Queen angels,
and many varieties of butterfly fish.  Sharks not really the place for them
but there is an occasional one.  Fish as always seemed less diver skitish
at Little Cayman than the Brac.  All in all a tremendous week for
experienced,intermediate, and advanced beginners.
