Default Water Proof Camera

Can someone recommend a good water proof camera? doesn't have to be for deep see diving, 10meters or so is more then enough.

doesn't have to be made by Canon,

There are a bunch out there. I have a Panasonic that used their 14 megapixel sensor and it is all kinds of soft and noisy, the new version went back to a 12 megapixel CMOS sensor which I think is much better. So far it hasn't leaked in over 2 years of use at least, so the seals are good.

It is just the right size. It has all the controls on the outside so you can change every setting. Even with the case it will be smaller than a DSLR.
