Canon IXUS 800 - Powershot 700
All these photos were taken with the Canon Powershot 700 and Canon WP-DC5 underwater housing.

Canon WP-DC5 underwater housingThe Powershot SD700 is marketed in Europe as the Canon IXUS 800 IS with the Canon WP-DC5 underwater housing.
The Powershot 700 / IXUS 800 is a couple of years old now – I’ve had mine since it first came out and taken thousands of shots underwater with it. I see no real reason to upgrade. You can read my original review of when I bought the Canon Powershot SD700 camera and WP-DC5 housing.
