I've been reading reviews on the web and it sure seems that camera is a
winner. Having the waterproof case for underwater shots makes it even more
of a winner, and I guess also keeps this discussion on topic :-) Me and
the misses are planning a Yucatan vacation and I'm thinking of the costs of
underwater cameras, film developing, etc. This camera could recoup some of
its costs that waypay for itself over time. One drawback is that it takes
standard batteries and uses them up quickly.
