Looks nice but the biggy for me - no viewfinder. Makes taking pics on bright days, with lots of reflections a pain in the bum!

Looks nice, but I'll just stick with not submerging my current DSLR....

hmmm not convinced. scnee far to many 'waterproof' cameras perish in a light shower. also think about how it will react to salt in the seals ect.

I am not that much of a photographer.. I leave that to the wife and our in house Media department at work :-(

Not sure what you would call it, but is a camera with a lenses that you can change to make different types of pictures look better depending how you fiddle with it... the results will certainly look a lot better than my efforts on the cheap point and shoot thing I currently use.

I was horrified at the cost of cameras.. certainly would not want to take a non waterproof one any where near a river.

EVIL - Electronic Viewfinder, Interchangeable Lens. It would seem the acronym however has not caught on.
