Dive in with the camera that goes anywhere. The waterproof, sporty STYLUS-550WP is one camera you won't need to handle with care. It's built to survive whatever you can dish out - the pool, the game, or even the beach. If you are the type that is always on the go, this camera can keep up. Whether you are snorkeling in Cancun, or crossing streams while hiking through National Parks, the Olympus Stylus 550 digital camera is shielded from water (up to 10 feet). The STYLUS-550WP can go where other cameras fear to tread and can perform as well under water as it does on land because of its slim lightweight, aluminum exterior that is sealed from the elements by interior rubber gaskets and O-rings. The inclusion of an underwater scene mode makes it ideal for taking photos while snorkeling, in the pool, or riding the waterslide. It's a simple to use vacation essential for outdoor fun. Minimize

Waterproof but not foolproof
Pros: Small, waterproof, inexpensive, good video format. Devices seen as folder under Windows.
Cons: Slow autofocus, crazy power save function, no viewfinder, proprietary battery, special USB cable.
Given that there isn't a camera out there that met all my buying criteria, this was the best waterproof choice for me, at the price. Read More at Epinions.com
