It was the Law of the Sea, they said. Civilization ends at the waterline. Beyond that, we all enter the food chain, and not always right at the top.

I've got the older Olympus 8000. It works great as point & shoot - what I used in Truk :)
If it gets wet, dive it - at least once......

Canon D30

I have had one of these for quite some time and I can say that it is really really good for its price range. (about $230 with cashback deal)
At the time of purchase it was the deepest point & shoot available. I haven't looked at any other cameras since. I still have it (4 years later?) and use it regularly. It functions properly down to about 27m before the buttons stop working, and ascending slightly gets it working again like normal.

I've since bought a housing for it (and lights) and taken it to 45m no probs (housing apparently good for 80m). Video and pics look pretty damn good for a $250 camera - good enough for me anyway. Just have to get the white balance set and you're good to go.
