    None of the cameras have received very good reviews but the Samsung WP10 is probably the best of the bunch. Keep in mind that users of these "waterproof" point and shoots often report problems with leakage when attempting to use them underwater.
    Panasonic FZ28
    Canon Elph 330 HS

    Hi Miso,

    For waterproof cameras my favourites are

    Panasonic Lumix LM-5 which I have and have been using for sometime now it goes up to 40feet deep and costs about $250 it also a super sturdy camer

    If you have a little more budget to spend there is the Olympus TG-3 which cost $340 but has been getting some amazing reviews lately

    If you need camera for diving and are willing to sacrifice a little on on land quality for the ability to go up to 82ft depth try the Canon Powershot D30 which costs $330

    Also if you want to take more video than shots you might consider a Go Pro you can get the white model from last year for as little as $200 check it out here

    If you are finding some of the camera reviews hard to follow you should try this camera quiz site Wizit it asks questions on how you intend to use the camera and makes recommendations accordingly.

    Let me know what you end up buying.
