My boyfriend purchased the Nikon AW110 for me for my birthday and the camera works great underwater and takes excellent video as well underwater. I highly recommend that camera its runs about 350 but was able to get it for around 315 when it went on sale online at Best Buy. Hope this helps :-)

Buy a GoPro 3 White for $199 and you can have 1080p video and still shots even underwater. It is the best thing going, divers love it too. You can look on youtube for video if you doubt me. :-)
