ISO a new point & shoot...

I have all the big equipment, but we're headed to WDW for a five day CAMPING trip in two weeks (sweaty just thinking about it) and I want to buy something new & compact that takes killer pics. I have a couple Fuji p&s's that have been ok through the years plus an Olympus underwater that I love.

That said, I am looking for great quality snapshot camera in something that isn't going to break if I look at it funny. Also and I don't know if there are any great p&s flash cameras out there but that's always been a problem for me with the Fujis.

Soo...any advice and suggestions greatly appreciated.

Don't laugh, but I'd prefer to stay under $300...less is better. It's been so long since I've camera shopped I don't know if its possible.

Also...I wouldn't mind it being an underwater if the other specs are what I need. I like the Olympus I have but it's a beat beaten up too.

I had looked for a waterproof camera last year at one point and saw a Panasonic that had good reviews. Its been replaced since by this one:

The previous version of this camera got a good review at dpreview.com

Now if you also want a zoom, I had bought my Dad a Canon Elph 300HS at Christmas. He really likes it. I have seen it under $200 at times. Its not waterproof but waterproof cases are available for it.

I'm a huge fan of Canon's image quality (although I prefer their higher ends like the s95). But check out their D20 for your purpose.

Currently the Sony RX100 is expensive but very nice. In your prive range the canon S95 and S100 are nice as well...
