Several people have used them below 100 feet without a housing.
I also have an olympus sw 770, i've had it for almost a year now, these are great pics, do you mind if i ask what features and adjustments you used in these shots?

I like it OK as far as picture quality and reliability but unless Oly has changed some things on the new camera I'll bet these issues still exist:
Proprietary USB connection (one more cable to keep track of)
Does not charge from the Computer while plugged into USB (must carry the charger with)
Expensive storage media. (there are other more "standard" forms.
I'd be interested to hear if Oly has changed any of this.

What I found especially intriguing is the comment that "Internal flash can be used underwater to trigger digital compatible slave". While this is a given for any compact, I wonder if this means that Oly has integrated FO sockets in these housings as they haven't previously mentioned this for any of their housings (it would make sense since they now have their own range of strobes, strobe arms etc...).
I will provide a report as soon as I have it.
