Well last week was my girlfriends last spring break, so I took a few days off work and went to Key West! I was the designated digital camera protector for the last night, and of course I break it. I took it out of my pocket and the damn screen is Jacked Up! Damn 151 Baccardi got to me i guess..

Anyways, I told her I'd buy her a new one, so I went to Best Buy and couldn't pass up the Olympus 7.1 Megapixel camera that is water proof up to 33 feet!! It's also shock proof! Didn't get to try it on the water this past weekend, but definately next!!

Check it Out! (http://www.olympusamerica.com/cpg_section/product.asp?product=1287)

That was some expensive 151!!! Nice camera.....does it have a zoom lens? I just bought my wife a Nikon with a 10X zoom and it really does the trick.

I have the previous version of that camera the 720sw which was waterprof to 10ft. Everything else is the same. Wish mine could go deeper for shallow scuba dives. I have used it a few times for underwater shots in the pool. Anyway it is a great little camera. Takes really good photos and nice video (I use it on a trakker a lot in the boat for slalom video). you'll love it.

Wish I would oh had it a year ago (dropped a Sony scybershot in the lake recovered it but it was toast.) ANyways the new olympus takes an amazing picture compared to previous cameras.

I got a Sony DSC-N1 8.1 Megapixel for Graduation last May... I love it. Touch screen, slide-shows, the thing is cool!


Then, I got a waterproof housing for the camera.
