    Oh yeah, I have an old $300 canon that I dropped in a pond. It actually still works... I want something with great macro and megapixels but that is at least waterproof. Because, well, I want a waterproof camera...

    For giggles:


    It was underwater for like, a minute. It has minor staining on the inside of the lens and a bit of damage on the LCD. I paid maybe three hundred for it, but you may be able to get an equivalent model for half that now.

    It took some nice photos while it was in its heyday.

    Photo was took on iPad, which is why it sucks...

    Canon PowerShots are really awesome. One I use to use, (still use on things like hikes) before getting a dslr was the PowerShot SD1400IS, and I used it HEAVILY for macro. I purchased it almost a year and a half ago at $200, should be a little under that by now.

    The older WG-1 is about $100 less. 14mp and 720p video but the rest of the specs are pretty much the same.

    Hey, Crofthulhu, those macro shots are pretty good for a point & shoot. I'll check it out.
