    Fuji Finepix Z33 WP is my current point and shoot waterproof. Works great for my needs. Did not "break the bank" when I got it. I've used it in fresh, salt and chlorinated water many times.

    I have a 3 year old pentax optio W30; there are now newer, higher pixel models. My 3 year old point and shoot digital camera take great pictures in, around and above the water

    PM me if you'd like to discuss.

    2 ways to go on this:
    1. a waterproof point and shoot
    2. a camera with a waterproof housing.

    My recomendation to you is to go with #1 b/c #2 means another bulky item to packedaround...
    You can read a good review here:

    A highly recommended one is the Panasonic TS2, itll do good in and out of the water.

    I'd also highly recommend this warranty!!!
