Just an FYI on waterproof camera reviews from dpreview.com ....as we occasionally get questions on them...

I will add it to our "camera recommendation" sticky ...

and none appear to have been taken by a competent shutter musher !!! :hair::bounce::bounce:
Well, I wasn't gonna go there, but... :D I did notice that most all the shots appear washed out to some degree. Likely due to the plastic "lens" that protects the real lens... I'd like to see some underwater shots. None of those thrilled me as far as general purpose, above the water shootin'.

I got an Olympus TG 1 for Christmas. Before the year is up, I`ll give you a review.

and i now have a Pentax Optio WG-2 . i can say for snap shots it is pretty good. i will try to get together some shots soon. i am not in love with it, but it is handy for the yak.

I really like the current crop of Olympus "Tough" cameras. Mrs. Rip has an Olympus TG-820 that has been tough, good, and waterproof. It's got a good macro mode too...

I DO NOT like the FujiFilm Finepix XP50 - it is supposed to be waterproof, but the one that I bought was NOT!
