Not recommending for diving but I thought some people would be interested in the review for shallow dives or snorkeling........

Nice - I actually suggested this camera to a snorkler couple recently. Great shallow water camera - oh and it's a Canon :)

Good read, good review, thanks!

Shame the Olympus tough cameras have consistently turned in such cruddy image quality. Great featureset, otherwise, could be a really nice camera!

Not a huge surprise that Canon sweeps the field yet again, though.

Shame they don't make a housing for the D10 to allow it to go even deeper. I would seriously consider a point in shoot that was durable, a Canon (I love Canons), potentially survive a leaky seal and was built to be around water outside its case. Would be nice to hook up accessories and such to the housing as well so you have a good point in shoot for snorkeling as well as a decent starter camera for diving.

Ello to every body, I'm new to this forum (but not to UW photography:smiley2:)

I agree with this concept. I'm wandered by possibility of loosing my camera due to a flooded housing (has happened to me).
Can anyone suggest a combination of one of these camera with a 60m housing? .. or may be more reliable a kit like those proposed by Sea&Sea (e.g. DX2G)?

Here is some good info on what's available in the market right now. It is a little old (there are some newer models out) but take a look and let us know what level and prince best fits your need and we can give you better direction.

If anybody lives in California and near Backscatter, talk to Berkely, Marshal, Jim, Russ, Dawn, and David, they'll help you get the best point/shoot, or Dslr.

Finally got my Dslr going.
