I have a number of digi cameras including a Sony a100, but am pretty excited about this inexpensive little point and shoot. It`s loaded with features and is 8 mp. I bought it because of it`s compact size and because I can take pictures of my kids while we are in the pool. We spend countless hours in there and I didn`t want to ruin one of my expensive cameras by getting it wet.

It`s waterproof to 10 feet without the optional diving case and shockproof from 5 feet.

I took a quick macro shot of a frogspawn in my nano cude to post here.

No acrylic tube or box needed. Just turn the camera and drop it in your aquarium.

this really is a good camera, i've taken it for scubas and it works great. Mine is the 770 though and it goes up to 33ft and is encased in stainless steel. If you HAVE to have an underwater camera, this is the one!

picked up a 770SW as well, partly after this thread (http://216.187.96.54/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=32964&highlight=olympus)

Nice pic, I have the 720sw and can't seem to get very good macro shots from the aquarium, the colors don't seem to show true(and some focusing problems). What settings are you using? I better get this figured out soon for my up coming tip.

Fuji has a new one out too. 10 mp and waterproof to 10 feet, it isn't shock proof though. Anyone have any experience with it, I almost made an impulse buy yesterday. I've seen them from $199 to $229 at various stores. They come in green, blue and black. They are tiny, my big mitts might have trouble manipulating the camera.

I currently have a Panasonic Lumix FZ8, nice camera all around, but not overly portable... I'm considering getting an Olympus 1030 SW, looks like a great camera for the beach!

This blows photobucket changed some thing. Before I would click on the image in photobucket, then image would appear in lg view. Then I highlight the IMG code, a icon would appear saying "copied". I would then click and drag to the post window and wala. But now it wont let me drag the copied code?

Just mouse-over the small image in the gallery view, the options pop up below... you mouse-over the IMG tag, click and it copies. You then Ctrl-V it into the post.
