    If that's the case, why not just get the S3 IS? When one has too many choices, one gets spoiled... just get one and start shooting

    To do that you will need to go to a shop, shoot, then view off their monitors. Those you see on the web probably edited liao.

    The risk is minimal, unless it's soaked in water, a plastic bag actually is pretty enough. There's no gaurantee a water casing won't seep water in after prolonged usage.

    Not to mention a water casing normally can cost the same or more than your camera itself.

    yeah i also checked sony's site... no underwater but have waterproof jacket....

    also, for canon s80, it has underwater casing..

    but, that does nt matter cos i wont go diving any time soon...

    but for waterproof jacket.. i find it useful, though a plastic bag may seem enough...

    hmmm.. now im undecided..

    if u looking for water proofing, my fren bought a sealed bag for his compact. it worked well, he tried take shots in the water and the cam was dry. we try putting a tissue in and submerged it and things came out dry! jus that it might be a little tough to handle the cam...

    to say the truth..... i heard that such casing are very ex.... so....

    hmm.. good point..

    so i guess i shd go down and test both Sony H5 and Canon S3IS unless anyone can tell which one is better? anyone tested both before?

    just go and try for yourself. I feel that camera is quite a personal thing. You have to handle, touch and feel
