xobxdoc, I will have my underwater camara for you guys when we snorkle. I alway had a canon and a hard water box to fit it. It leaked once and the camara was shot. I now have a olympus that is all water proof with no housing. It takes the best underwater pics or above water pics. Its about a $400 camara but its worth it for me. Kent

We were discussing this last night. $400 is not much for my son who hopes to work for National Geographic. We are still undecided. His Nikon Cool Pix was 249 while is Nikon D90 was much more (this was required by school) He is thinking about a case for the cool pix. I also like the idea using it just for protection. We will keep you updated
Iactually bought the waterproff/shockproof Canon D10 and it takes the most amazing underwater shots and videos... in the gallery all of my underwater shots were taken with it. I have found it to be a great all around camera for anythign out doors or even indoors. It is beefy enough tat it doesnt feel like it will break and it can survive a tough fall.
Here are a few up close and personal fish pictures taken with our Olympus Stylus Tough 8000. We are generally happy with the camera but I think we are going to upgrade to the new Olympus TG-810 camera before the next trip so we can get the GPS EXIF data and 14 megapixel resolution.
