Underwater recreation is not cheap, more if you decide to take snap of its beauty but it's worth it. Try to use your normal digital camera with underwater camera housing. You can try lower end housing like ikelite™ if budget is the deciding factor. Don't buy cheap uw casing from camera manufacturers, they do not specialized in that area - it's a waste. Once you flood your camera it is not logical to send it for repair. It is even more not logical to buy another camera to be flooded by the same uw casing, that being said, you waste both your camera and uw camera housing. Some of the important factors are proper equipment selection, operation, maintenance and storage. Do not exceed the rated depth, it's not worth the try.

Underwater camera housing can be fitted with accessories like arms and strobes for better picture quality if you decide to take underwater photography seriously.

Proper maintenance after each dive is a must or you risk your camera being flooded.

some of the underwater casings for camera are soo bulky. quite difficult to lug around. i'm eyeing a D10 (since forever!) but i don't know i'm still not super convinced if i should get it.

after throwing away (literally) 3 underwater cameras (ge, fujipix, lumix) i finally decided to buy a SEASHELL housing (from infomax, with a big discount). it's configurable so after following the instructions, i finally snug-fitted my samsung t550 inside it in a few minutes. tried it in matabungkay last sunday, no problem under 3-meter depths. haven't tried it deeper (it's rated for 40m) but i'm confident it will still be airtight.

canon d10 is bulky too and its color won't fit any other occasion aside from a beach activity. but according to some users its shots (underwater and above) are better than underwater cameras like lumix, ge, etc.

the only drawback is its video which can record only vga quality and it can't record sound

i wonder why canon never made another underwater camera

I was also reading for some underwater camera reviews as I am also planning to get one. I tried using Olympus before, but wasn't so impressed. Lumix is my new bet (and now saving up for it.) :)

good luck to your plan to buy lumix. my lumix was flooded after 2 uses, in spite of following all their precautions. the 0-ring must be replaced every year (you'll read this in its manual's small prints) and the replacement price might set up back

well i finally got wiser (after reading lonewolf69's suggestion) and bought myself a SEASHELL underwater case from infomax. the owner's a friend of mine so i got a hefty discount. now, NO MORE WORRIES! i've brought it 30' underwater in boracay and other places. i use it with a samsung st550. you may use it with any type of handy camera.

I've had the Canon D10 for 3 years.  I still love it. The metal screws are starting to corrode due to all the salt water trips, but it still takes good pics.  The video also has sound.  Don't know who said it doesn't have sound, but it does. Of course, the sound doesn't do much good filming underwater.
