Hi,

Im after a water proof camera. I do not wish to have a camera with extra casing. The camera will not be submerged more than 3 metres.

Reliability is a must. Do not want something that will break or leak water. Good battery life would be nice.
Would also be using the camera out of the water.
Will be using the camera for both in and out of water.

Any recommendtions would be great.

Also, if you can warn against any particluar models that would be useful also.

Thanks

Anyone have any experience orinfo on the Panasonic Lumix TS1?

And the best place to buy from?

Thanks

Olympus makes the Tough models. See:

for one review.

The lower specification models are only waterproof to about three metres.

You,d look a bit funny walking down the street but this would do the job.

The idea is to use it under water...:-)

I'm out of date on SLR's - used to use a Nikon Calypso film camera in the military.
