Underwater Digital Camera?
I will be heading to Puerto Rico this coming Sunday (woot!!) and I'd like to get a camera that I can use during my snorkeling trip. Please let me know a good option! I am looking at this Olympics one...

We have underwater disposable cameras for our trip to Discover Cove tomorrow. I'm actually posting this in our villa in Florida right now.

I was thinking of this Olympus Stylus 1050
But yes...disposable ones might be a better choice at this moment. I just don't want to risk the chance of exposure during the x-ray check...I don't know. Being overly paranoid.
Have anyone used this camera?

im working as a lifeguard for the summer and i saw a family using a digital camera underwater. it looked like a normal canon. i had never seen a non-disposable waterproof camera before.

Oh man...I actually came across this waterproof digital camera randomly on a page in a magazine...I thought it'd be nice to have one. =)

There are some good camera water housings. I use one whenever I go diving. The work very well in shallow water but the images get a little to blue beneath 30 ft unless you got a red filter or a strong external flash.Do as I say. Not as I do.

As William says, many manufacturers offer waterproof housings for their digital cameras, so you may want to get a regular digital camera plus a waterproof housing.
