Default waterproof camera

Well me and my digital camera went for a swim in the middle fork of the Flathead the other day. I'm in the market for a new camera but this time preferrably a water proof camera.

I'm not looking for a super expensive one but would like one that takes nice pictures. I'm not to worried about video.

Thanks

I love my Nikon Coolpix AW100s.

Got a great deal on eBay on it. Worth a look if you can find one.

I have the Panasonic TS3 and Im really happy with it. So are my friends who I've let borrow it.

The Nikon AW100 is also a good option, it was released the day after I had ordered my TS3 otherwise I probably would have considered it.

Canon also just released an up to date D10 waterproof but they are kinda goofy looking and feel funny. Guy I work with has one and it likes to get lense errors though.

Stay away from the Fuji Fine pics cameras, my friend has one and its less then steller.

olympus also makes a pretty decent tough camera, just shop around, you'll find something you like.

I have the Fuji XP and I find it more than adequate for me. It performs well in onstream situations and comes with a float so if it is dropped it can be retrived. The large screen allows for easy framing of the shot and the video feature is easy to use. It is also significantly less expensive than the Nikon. I am an avid outdoor photographer and I have two high end Nikons so I do not use the Fugi for anything other than on stream photography. The only real complaint I have is that some of the controls seem small but I have that issue with all small cameras.

Not sure if you are an iphone kind of person, but I've been waiting for my SLXtreme(used to be aqua tek s) case for a couple of months. Just started shipping to the first backers earlier this month. Hopefully will be caught up soon enough. Of course the iphone camera might not be up to your quality requirements, but still pretty cool.

I have a Olympus Tough waterproof camera. Great pics above and below water. Even the video below water great. (if the water is clear).

Very fast shutter speed as well when taking regular pics.

Just my two cents....

Thumbs up Re: waterproof camera

Thanks guys for the feedback. I actually brought this up with my mom and she had already bought me the one that was on sale from amazon. It was supposed to be a Christmas present. Oh well.

Thanks!
