"waterproof cameras for snorkeling"


US
          

Hi All,

I hope this is the right forum for this question. I have 4 days post-safari that will be spent near Mnemba reef on Zanzibar. I don't want to plop down big $$ for an underwater housing for a D4 or D800 as I am not a serious scuba diver. However, I do want to capture some high quality images while snorkeling each - mainly underwater of the family and the underwater life.

I am looking at the Coolpix AW110 and the Olympus TG-2. Does anyone have exerience with either of these, or both as a comparison? I am mainly interested in IQ and not so much in wiFI capability etc. Both do not shoot RAW, and both seem to go down to about 50 ft. The Oly TG-2 does have an f/2.0 lens and the ability to attach a fish-eye lens, both seem very appealing for my short-term needs. However, I have read a couple of places that the IQ on the Nikon may be better.

any advice is GREATLY appreciated. Thank you.
Alex
