Thank you for this wonderful ongoing report. Great shots underwater. Based on your ongoing report and photos and that I was looking for a tough camera I bought a Nikon Coolpix AW100 for myself as a Xmas present, thank you for testing it underwater first. I got a great deal at Costco on sale, camera, 8gb card and camera case for $175.
Have a Great New Year and many safe journeys in 2013.
