What exactly do you mean with "water proof": can handle the occasasional rain drop or can make pics under water?

If underwater - how deep underwater?

Scuba divers insist that you need a "hard case" waterproof case for Scuba.
For a swimming pool, most waterproof "point and shoot" cameras will work.

Water Proof Camera or Camera housing unit

Sometimes getting a water proof camera can be a solution. However, it has been my experience that if the actual camera itself is water proof, it may not be a very high performance camera.

I've got a Panasonic Lumix Tough that does the job quite nicely.

Currently I'm using Canon PoweShot D10 waterproof and I'm very impressed with the picture quality on this camera. The 12 megapixel sensor, coupled with a dozen shooting modes, produce an excellent image.

hi i was searching the forum for some advise on camera lenses when i read your post . . . . i recently purchased the GoPro Hero 2 for use both under and out of water. Kids use it on surfboards and when snorkelling and then its attached to the motor bike, push bike ripstick and skateboard - if you can think it we have probably tried it. Its a fab little camera 11 megapixels takes great video and it comes with a clear plastic housing for underwater. If $$ are to much maybe you can purchase earlier model which are still good at 5 m/p.
