I have had great luck with Panasonic TS series (I have owned the TS-1 and TS-3). Yesterday I used my TS-3 at Disney in the middle of a strong Florida rain shower. I have also used it underwater in the past. Great little camera imo!

I have had 2 Panasonic P&S waterproof cameras - The TS1 and the TS2. Both failed. The TS1 corroded within 6 months even though proper care was observed. The TS2 failed first time snorkelling - water leak.
I now have a Nikon AW100 but have not tried it under water yet. I am not really impressed with the still picture quality, although the movies look OK.
