Underwater camera show me your pics!!

Hey y'all I'm wanting to but an underwater camera for snorkeling. I want something that will keep true to white balance, not leaving a blue color cast on everything! What types of cameras have you used? Show me your underwater pics (list your camera too please). Also I'm looking for something with Video as well. Hope I'll get some good responses!! Thanks in advance everyone! Would like to spend around $100 or less... But for a great camera I'd go above!

Sealife makes great underwater cameras. That's about all they're good for, but they do it well.

The blue shift under water is more than just a white balance issue.

Personally I really like the GoPro. You won't find a very good "any type" of camera for under $100. Sorry to say. The GoPro does come in a couple of options that can get close though. I used mine on our trip aboard the Disney Dream and it performed great. The video is great too. Some of me shots are below. ( if I linked correctly). You can also see more on my Flickr Site. You will still get a blue cast but these can easily be edited out using some free editors. I personally use Lightroom but Google Picasa is a good starting program. Hope you find a good camera it truly is fun..
