Waterproof camera for travelling


\015 I'm looking for a waterproof, shockproof camera to take on my trip to Thailand. I don't want to spend a loot of money,(less than 100), as I don't want to be worrying about loosing an expensive camera. I would be a happy with a secondhand one. \015\012\015\012Can you recommend any cameras I should look out for?\015

I have a Canon PowerShot SD500, Digital ELPH. It has been WONDERFUL! Since I have used it a lot and for years traveling, I am wondering how much longer it will work. Is there an average lifespan for these cameras? What camera should I replace it with if I want comparable quality and function? What symptoms will develop when it is reaching the age that it will need to be replaced? I hope it lasts forever as it is a wonderful camera. The only thing it doesn't do is video.

When I want to download my most recent photos onto my pc, the camera automatically downloads ALL my photos on the memory card. There seems to be no feature to select the last few photos to download.

My Vivitar waterproof camera will not power up-have replaced batteries but still not working. It has only been used a few times but is now out of warranty. Have noticed there is a slight salt residue in battery compartment. Don't know why this has happened as I made sure the compartment was properly sealed and I always rinsed camera in fresh water after use. Is it worth sending away to get it looked at? (Will cost $44.00 plus postage).

This morning I showed my family the pictures on my Fuji camera which I took in Bangkok and Tokyo. Then I took a plane home from Los Angeles. I just came in (from a flight from LA to Dulles) and tried to show the rest of my family the pictures and what comes up in a wierd black and white outline on the screen. The camera traveled in my suitcase just like it did when I took it to Bangkok. It is fully charged. I hope I have not lost my pictures.

I am traveling through Brazil with my Nikon Coolpix S220. I had it in a ziploc bag in my sports bra. I took it out and started to look at photos when the screen turned white with gray lines.

Dear Experts: I got the 850SW over a year ago, I only used it less than 10 times around pool or water park. I never immersed the cemera in water though, I doubt it was really waterproof like they claimed. Three weeks ago, my friend borrowed it for snorkeling in Hawaii for a couple of minutes. then the camera couldn't be turned on: every time I pressed the power button, it kept on beeping a few times then went off.
