Cracked the casing, ruined it, ruined the memory card, everything. And the store wouldn't take it back because I'd taken it to about 12 feet. A deep swimming pool can actually damage it.

    You're much better off with the casing that Jean Marcus suggests - it will go to 25-50 feet depending what you buy, which is good enough for any snorkeling, and if you get a 50-footer should work for shallow scuba trips.
    im gonna have to let a friend of mine knows who just got one of those... i dont think she has taken it swiming or anything yet. mainly we just have fun with it by throwing it in someones drink at a party haha

      Olympus Stylus 790SW 7.1MP Waterproof Digital Camera with Dual Image Stabilized 3x Optical Zoom (Orange)
      7.1-megapixel CCD captures enough detail for photo-quality 15 x 20-inch prints
      2.5-inch HyperCrystal LCD screen minimizes glare
      3x optical zoom; Face Detection technology
      Waterproof (down to 10 feet), freeze-proof, and crush-proof design
      27 Shooting modes; in-camera editing options
      Just an aside (don't mean to hijack), but I just wanted to say you should be very happy with your Olympus. I'm on my third Olympus camera (keep upgrading, I'm a bit of a photo nut), and have no complaints whatsoever.

        We got disposable waterproof cameras for our OOT bags. At Kmart I think. They were probably $12 each but we have very few people coming to our wedding so we only had to buy 4 or 5. Don't know how good the pictures will be. I think we got cameras like this when we went to Hawaii a few years ago and the pictures were fine. I have a feeling FI 11 year old neice will be the one using them the most.

          I'm thinking of picking up one of these - Waterproof Camera Cases: Digital, SLR, Point & Shoot for mine and my mother's camera. Might be a bit pricy for OOT bags, but looks neat nonetheless.

              just make sure you get the one that fits your exact model number or it wont fit at all in there :)

                  I've never had much success with those disposable ones...I've heard the best thing to buy one of the waterproof cases for your digital camera.

                   

                  I'm going to look into those soon, anyone know of any good ones?
