    After a good waterproof camera

    Hi Guys

    Im in the market for a waterproof camera. It doesnt need to go deeper than 5m (im not that good at diving) I just want something that will take a decent picture and fit in my pocket when down the beach or whatever.
    Budget is around the $350 mark. Ive been looking at the nikon coolpix AW100, ive found them in dick smith for $250 but i cant find one with batteries
    so i cant have a play with it! Has anyone got one of these? Do you like it?

    Any help would be great! Thanks

    Olympus have been making good ruggedised compacts for quite a while and have a good reputation for their range : http://www.olympus.com.au/Products/D...ras/Tough.aspx

    Ok. So I got the Nikon Coolpix. Got a great deal on it. Pretty happy. I did look at olympus, not a bad unit, maybe a bit chunky.
    Looking forward to taking some under water shots/ shots around water. Low light not so good but i guess thats is with most point and shoots.
    (a bit spoiled for image quality with the 7D)
