    The wife just bough me an Olympus tough 8010 for Christmas, I guess the discussion below on camera mounts is gonna come in handy. Beats putting the point and shoot in zip lock bags. :mrgreen:

    I am now on my second Olympus Tough camera and gave one to my girlfriend for Xmas. I suggest getting the waterproof strap - lack of one is why I am on my second camera!

    The 6020 is the one I just bought, very nice camera. Got it brand new off eBay for $175 -ish.

    Wife bought a Canon D10, should be here this Friday! I read good reviews on it and from Ed(Tootsall) in Alberta.

    I've shot a few pictures with a friend's D10. I was impressed with its ruggedness and how it handles. Have not really checked the image quality, but for a point and shoot, what I saw looked acceptable.

    Forgot to say we got it at Dell.ca at $269.99 if anyone else is interested.
    Hmm..... Price went up after the New Year's... Is now $289.99 and out of stock and we had free shipping......

    Great price, Rick. I paid $329 for mine and checked the prices in Hong Kong when we were there last fall... $389 with the full warrantee (if you happened to live in Hong Kong....always a problem buying "offshore")
