    I'm going to buy a very good compact digital camera that I will use on surface and in the water when I'm diving. It should be a small camera that I easily can get in my pocket like an canon ixus. I'm pretty bad with cameras so I need someone who can help me figure out wich one I need.

    I problibly need a camera with these functions:

    X Big display so I easily can watch my pictures under water
    X compact and robust
    X Good colors and white balance
    X I want to take good pictures close to the target (good makro?)
    X It should give good focus on things and make the sourroundings a little blurry lite this picture http://www.vannar.net/foto/gronsak.htm
    X Good endtimes, it have to go fast to take a picture
    X I want to take pictures like this http://www.dykarna.nu/photoAlbum/showPhoto.asp?albumId=12332&photoId=127724

    I understand that I maybe can't get all this in a compact digital camera, but which one do you think would fit me best?

    It's only waterproof to ten feet though.

    No problem, I'm going to buy a underwater case anyway. And most of the cameras have underwater cases. So.. any suggestions?
