    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).
    My Gear:
    Panasonic FZ28
    Canon Elph 110 HS
    Canon A720IS (retired)

    Thanking you a whole lot for the insight, i really am once again so much thankful for your time, which camera you would have gone with if you were in my place with a budget of 200$ max?

    i really am looking forward for an advice..

    PS : How about Canon Powershot D10?

    Thanks

    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.
