I've been a Nikon Fan for years and I love their products. That Nikonus underwater camera is AWESOME! My father has an older one. Built like a rock, but it is for real diving and what not. I'll take my Canon anyday. In the surf for pics at the beach, in the pool, in the rain, on the ski slopes, or even in striper land, it is the best for its size. I also own last years version of that Nikon Nuvis camera, and it is well made as well. I recommend it for use on land, but nowhere near the water due to its pricetag. I don't think that is covered in the warantee :-).
