which waterproof digital compact camera ??

Hi ,
Search function did not answer my question and the electronic market develop that fast that a good recommendation from last year might be already not "up to date" nowadays ..
So - which digital cameras do you use on the RIB ??
The camera should be good to make pictures in motion and needs to be robust , small & waterproof .
Any advice ??

I have a Panasonic Lumix DMC-FT3 which I'm very happy with.

Second the Lumix DMC-FTxxx - fantastic cameras - had one which I lost and replaced it with a Pentax waterproof - worst decision I ever made!

Its not waterproof but I bought a Nikon J1 with two lenses and its great

As for something to keep in your pocket how about an iphone 4 or something like that in a waterproof case?

Just a thought so don't kick me in the spuds

Panasonice Lumix. Had an early Olympus, but dissapointed with it. Huge 'shutter' lag and poor screen. Good to 10m depth though.

I use a cheap Praktica Aquapix with a waterproof case at work, and while it's not David Bailey quality, it does the job well enough. For 40ish including the case, you don't have to be too careful with it either.
