Looking at a Panasonic it gets very misused reviews especially when used under water supposed to be good for 10m but seems to fail....
Panasonic lumix DMC -FT20 iv'e had this camera few years now & never failed

Was about to order the Panasonic as saw a good deal on one Under 3100 then spotted an old Kodak on ebay had a cheeky bid and for £15 delivered i'll see how it goes, if its not great i will give it to some kids or ebay it back again!

IT got decent reviews when it was new (some 5 years ago) and runs on AA battery's and uses old school big SD cards which i have a few of kicking around...
