If you remember that waterproof cameras are not known for image quality, you have won half the battle. Also, with a camera meant for good outdoor and underwater performance you want reliability and ease of use. An affordable point-and-shoot to splash with at the beach or pool should allow use at some depth, provide a clear viewing screen, some video capability, and some zoom. Some new models even allow GPS tagging. Well-known brands Fuji and Kodak and lesser-known companies Vistaquest, Vupoint and Vivitar have waterproof cameras for under $150. Look for the sport camera label along with the waterproof tag - this means that the camera is rugged enough for usage in the wet.
