    It is a Canon Powershot SD800IS - Image Stabilization, wide angle lens, and very small. View finder is the LCD panel on back but it is easily seen even in bright light.

    Default Sony

    I'm a firm believer in Sony and picked up the very small, lightweight DSC-S750 Cybershot for under $200. The photo quality is awesome and it fits nicely in a small pouch that's on my sternum strap. The zoom isn't wonderful but as far as I'm concerned, if you need a big clear zoomed shot then you need a nice big lens for that anyway.

    The Canon G9's are great, they have all of the functionality of a DSLR but without the ability to put lenses on it (think a Rebel XT without the big lenses)

    I use an Olympus Stylus 770SW, it's a metal case, about the size of a deck of cards (fits in a jeans pocket) and has some boastful claims:

    1) waterproof to 33 feet (I use it kayaking and have submerged it about 4 feet)
    2) shockproof (to a 3 foot fall)
    3) crushproof to 220lbs
    4) freeze proof (to 14F)

    yes, it sounds "idiotproof" but for sea kayaking, I wanted something to keep clipped to the deck or my life jacket so I could take pictures at a moments notice.

    I've also used it for snowboarding, since it's nice and small to fit into a jacket pocket.

    It can shoot video but only at 15FPS so it's not great (maybe the newer models can do 30fps).

    I think I paid $330 last summer for mine, but at the time, was looking at a Sony point & shoot and a waterproof case, then realized I could just get one that had all of that protection without a big plastic case.

    My "real" camera is a Canon 40D, but that's not as easy to lug around
