Hi,

I am searching a waterproof compact/point and shot camera (able to go to 10 meters / 30feet deep or more) for my wife
Budget around $500 or less ;)

Any idea, experience or thought ? (i don't care about the brand)

Thank you for the links Copper NYC and denncald they allowed me to see 5-6 different brands
And this afternoon we went to different camera shop and my wife "crushed" on the Canon PowerShot D30 rated for 25meters and some people push it to ... a lot further.
i personally spent plenty of time comparing the jpg on DP reviews with others brands ... over all i found Canon less "paint effect" (anyway she didn't care about my pixel peeping -? )

So Canon PowerShot D30 it will be tomorrow :-)

Thanks again
