I think its a great step, but I prefer the Olympus Stylus 1030 SW. Its been out for over a year. Really nice camera and takes great pictures in and out of the water.

I've read a lot of mixed reviews about the Olympus Water cameras. Some are just but there are more that simply fail and let water in. When I researched it I found something like 7 our of 10 had issues so I said not worth the risk.

Looking forward to the reviews on this little thing. Would make a nice point and shoot to have so I dont have to take the SLR everywhere.

I think this is a winner. The design is decent and Canon has a very good reputation when it comes to executing their P&S models. Although I prefer the spec sheets of other brands such as Panasonic, Canon continually churns out reliable point and shoots with very good image output, usability and metering. Good on Olympus for selling in the waterproof niche all this time, but I had always been waiting for Canon to join the party.

Looks a lot like the Fisher-Price Kid Tough Digital Camera (external link) to me.

Seriously though why does it have to look like a kid's camera? At least the Olympus' look like an adult camera that's simply reinforced.

possibly because it's mainly aimed at a younger generation of photographers? You know, the teens taking it to the beach, a pool party, etc...

Yeah that's right. Because a camera has to look like a bar of soap if it's gonna be at the beach. In the meantime, it looks out of place everywhere else.

Yes, it may look funny, but I wouldn't care if it takes good pictures and is convenient to use. FWIW, The lens spec seems better than the comparable Fuji and Olympus.

What Fuji do you consider comparable? If you're talking about the Z33WP, I agree. It also looks like a bar of soap though. I'd probably go for an Olympus though if I knew I was abusing my camera a lot. You don't really need (or want) a fast lens in broad daylight so that's kinda moot. Downside is they suck at night. I'm not on the beach much so my standard Fuji is fine. And it looks like a real camera.

Yes, Z33WP. I actually don't mind the toy-like dinky appearance, that may help deter theft in places where camera is hard to hide (like my wife's bikini :-D)

I'm going to be interested to see this one. The price tag seems high to me since I can grab an excellent A series and a Canon housing for about $300 already.

Love to lay hands on one of these guys, but not sure I'll be popping for the $329...

Duh... so it looks sexy upon entry into water! ;)

You can have a Canon that slides smoothly into the water...
