Digital Camera + Underwater Housing

  markgozo 15:44 11 Oct 2008

I'm looking at buying a new digital camera with an underwater housing. A friend recomended a Canon Power Shot A720. I need photos to be sharp and colours bright. Any advice on this or other cameras please?

My daughter has a waterproof Olympus mui digital camera - the pictures it takes underwater are brilliant (she lives in the Caymans).

Not sure if this is the actual model:

Can you find an available supply of the A720 anywhere ?

It consistently received excellent reviews and I think it's 'out of stock' status speaks for itself.

If you find a good supply, please reply with a link.

The other offspring has the Canon A710IS, which was replaced by the A720.

Again superb picture quality and detail and, what's more, a "proper" viewfinder..:-)

We have an Olympus mu85SW. Waterproof to 3 metres. They probably make a later model now.
It is excellent even takes good video under water.
We have used it in the Maldives for the last couple of years to video fish on the reef.
