I use a Canon A85 with the Canon WP-DC30 housing. Full access to all
controls. Works well. Same housing works with A75.
A85 is perhaps a bit bigger than some of the compacts, it uses 4 AA
batteries. The plus side of this is long battery life, less opening of the
housing between dives. Less chance of a whoops, my camera is flooded. I used
a 1 gig card with it. Backup to CD every day.

Rudy,

Would you be willing to share some of your underwater images for us to see?

Did you try a camera store?

If you can't find a housing for the cameras on your list, and a
housing is important, add more cameras to your list, ones that have
housings.

I have a Sony DSC-P73 which might not be as small as the cameras on
your list, but it ain't exactly huge either.

It all depends on what is really important to you.

Why don't you get a Sony DSC-U60 on ebay. It's already waterproof,
very cute camera, too bad it's discontinued.

I am in England and have a Canon Ixus 400, and a Canon WP DC800 housing.
The housing fits an Ixus 500 aswell. Not sure how this translates to the
US, or wherever you are?

"Perhaps?" It doesn't really sound like you want to share. No problem. I
just enjoy seeing what other people are accomplishing.

My address is real - just remove the REMOVEs.

There is a good reason mine does. It helps prevent the email harvesters and
spidering programs from grabbing up my address and dumping it into a
database for selling or spamming. It isn't perfect protection, but it helps
and is quite common.

Since its my own domain, I can generate email addresses at will. Anything
coming to this address is automatically assumed to be spam, I act
accordingly. So far, it has not proven to be a problem at all.

I know there are underwater housings available for some of the Pentax Optio
cameras. And, they are "very" small and light.
