Olympus makes a pretty cool waterproof camera uip to 10 feet. so you can take it in the pool as well as to the beach! It's also drop-proof(up to 5m) and freeze proof up to -10C. There will be a new release around March of their crushproof camera(So glad this one is back!) up to 220 lbs as well. LOve this camera just for these features alone. It's the everything camera, pair this up with Future Shop's product service plan and its pretty much indestructable! muahaha lol.

The Olympus one is as far as I know, the only one Future Shop has.

Hi all!
 
   Yes, Olympus have the good w790, it has 3 different "under water" modes, to take picture under water! For the new version, I don't know what will be the model alphanumeric name, but buyers are on the front line to get it first.
 
   Futueshop have also an other waterproof digital camera, de Pentax Optio w30, with roughly the same specs has the w790 from Olympus. For myself, I prefer the w790, because the case look much more stronger, probably because of it's shockproof.

the pentax one is only waterproof up to 10 ft. The olympus one is much more durable as is it drop proof and freeze proof.

They can both take video underwater, right? (I don't see why not, but some companies just don't think right..)

The Optio is garbage.

The Optio is garbage. At least the Olympus is acceptable.

The best way to determine which one would suit your needs...

The best way to determine which one would suit your needs is to take a trip to your local Future Shop and test them out, they will have both on demo to show you and answer any more questions you may have. My personal preference is the Olympus one since it can do more than withstand water :smileyhappy: hope this helps you out
