My favorite is the Nikon Action Touch. This is a terrific camera and I am always on the lookout for them. They are waterproof, bombproof and the pictures are sharp. The only hitch is that they haven't been made for 5+ years. Don't be discouraged. These babys last and I run into them every now and then( about$250.). If you see one buy it. If you don't like it e-mail me and one of my friends will buy it from you. This camera is almost a cult item.
While you search the world over for the Action Touch, get a Pentax Weathermatic. They are water resistand and take very good pictures as well. Eddie
