    First I want to say AAAAAAAAAAAAAA!! I am having a time trying to narrow down the world of digital point and shoots. :confused:

    Here's my specs:
    6 or higher megapixels
    Has underwater housing
    Has as much manual control as possible
    11x14 will be the biggest print I make

    Don't care about brand but I am used to Canon. I have found out that Nikon has very few underwater housings so that put a damper on those.

    I'd appreciate any help you can give me.

    I have a Canon g6 and would highly recommend it as a P&S camera. Image quality is excellent and the manual controls are well layed out and relatively easy to use.

    That being said if 11x14 is the biggest print you'll consider, then you really don't need 6 megapixels on your camera. Four or five should do it.

    Thanks Peter! I'll check out the G6 and also look at less megapixel cameras.

    I have (or should say had) Olympus C5060 and it was awesome! I know it has underwater housing cuz I saw people selling it on ebay. Just a suggestion. It has 5.1 megapixels.
