any suggestions on where to buy a not so expersive underwater camera? not disposable? I already have a nice digital so I dont really want to spend a whole lot on an underwater but may want to change my mind about the disposables.

I just bought the Olympus Stylus 850 SW on Amazon for $160 + shipping. I took it with me on the jet skis in Coco Cay and the dolphin swim in Nassau. It works great! I haven't realy tried out the underwater features (snorkeling, etc.) but the waterproof part works great!

I have a DSLR and I was VERY impressed by some of the features of this pocketsize camera.

Olympus has a store on eBay where they sell old models and reconditioned cameras - you should check it out.

Sam's club is running this for about $158.00 right now as well and I think it includes the floatable strap. You may want to ck that if you are a Sam's member.
