Recommend me an underwater camera
I'm going on holiday in January and will be snorkelling every day on a reef. I'd love to get an underwater digital camera to make the most of what I see.
I don't have much money to spend on it (all that's going on the holiday!) but anything up to $100-150 or £50-100 (I'm in the UK). Can anyone recommend any specific models? Do you have sample photos you have taken with an underwater camera?
I've used disposables before, and whilst ok, were not great quality (very, very grainy and mostly out of focus). I'd like something digital now that they are affordable.

Thanks for that. Do you have one? I've read good reviews on these.

Yeah I have a DSLR. I'd love an underwater housing for it but they seem to cost a lot more than the camera itself!

dslr underwater housings are super expensive. You'll be lucky to get a reliable one for less than a couple grand. Much easier and cheaper to get a camera designed for that purpose.

I'm definitely going to go for a purpose compact.

I have a GoPro. I got it for the tuff enviroment of off shore fishing. I think that the GoPro would be hard to beat.
