Pentax Waterproofed

i love diving, swimming and just being underwater. with the recent digital cameras, i've been able to freely take photos underwater and the results are fantastic. aside from losing my camera due to water leak, i've been pretty psyched about taking photos underwater. waterproofing your camera also means you can take it to the beach, to ski, or any other weather conditions you might throw at it.
Pentax has gone further and waterproofed their WP series without a casing. this week, they revealed their 3rd installment and upped the megapixels to 6. now i'm not saying it's no good, but this is basically a sports camera instead of a true underwater camera. the W10 is still only water proof to 1.5 meters and only for 30 minutes. basically, anyone who snorkels will be going further down to take photos of any corals, fish or turtles... there's no way the animals will be up in the 1.5 meter water for you to photograph. this camera is suited towards skiing, beaching, wakeboarding or other water sports. i think it's really handy to have a water tight camera, so that you don't worry about the rain or weather conditions. it's also turned out some pretty nice photos, fast startup (0.6 sec) and simple point/click action. i still haven't learned from my mistake and got another camera, but perhaps one of these would do me good.

the first Optio WP has 5 MP, 3x zoom and a 2 inch LCD.

the next generation Optio WPi has 6.0MP, 3x zoom and 2.0 inch LCD. this is the one i've tested out and pretty much works like a point and click. i wouldn't take one home with me, but i like where it's heading. great for outdoors junkies.

the LATEST Option W10 has a new formfactor. slimmer and larger LCD. 6MP, 3X zoom, 2.5 inch LCD. I'd like to see an improvement on the waterproof class next time...
