Contemplating Olympus 720, 770, 790 or ?

27 December 2007 - 03:19 PM

I just got started with diving and I am also in need of a new digital camera. Currently I am looking at one of these 3 models with the housing unit as well. Does anyone out there have any experience with these models with the housing unit? On this board I have found a few posts about these models, but none regarding them with using the housing unit.

What i am basically looking for is a decent slim digital camera that I can also get a housing unit for and use it as a regular digital and an underwater digital. Do you have any other recommendations out there? I saw a lot of good reviews for the Canon a570, but this is almost an inch thicker then the Oly models and heavier. And there seemed to be too many negative comments on the short battery life.

Any help appreciated!
