Multitasking underwater with aquatic camera

New waterproof camera from Japan

In our sensory-inundated world, multitasking isn't confined to terrestrial pursuits. While you swim with your iPod and transfer USB files , for example, you can also be taking photos underwater .

The newest entry in aquatic photography is a 6-megapixel camera from Japan's Sea & Sea (shouldn't it be "Sea & See"?), which was posted on Engadget. In or out of its protective casing, the camera is no slouch where specs are concerned: It has a 2.5-inch LCD, 3x optical zoom and 32MB of built-in memory contained in a 3.7-by-2.2-inch body that's less than 1 inch thick. But at about $462, we're not sure if we'd want to get it wet.
