    None of the cameras on your list have received decent reviews (the Sony Bloggie and Kokak ZX5 are inexpensive video cameras) Waterproof digital cameras by Sony and Panasonic will probably give you the best image quality. Both the Sony TX20 and Panasonic TS25 are good cameras and can be purchased in the US for under $200 USD (I don't know what the prices are where you'll be shopping).

    The D10 is an older camera and not widely available.
    I'd probably go with the Panasonic TS25. You can buy it in the US for under $200.
