I remember somebody mentioning the canon powershot A570 being a good beginner camera to use for underwater pics. while looking around for the camera I noticed the new A580 which appears to be similar if not basically the same. is there a housing yet for the 580 or will the same housing work for either the 570 or the 580? Canon website doesn't show a housing for it.

never mind, after checking further it appears the 580 doesn't have manual exposure setting. if somebody knows different let me know please.

thanks for that, I too am looking for an A570. I have done a lot of research on them and think it is a very good rig. they seem to sell for about 125-$150 without housing. Too bad I need some other equipment first so unless I find a smokin deal it will have to wait.
