Well, to paraphrase P.T. Barnham, no-one ever went broke underestimating the intelligence of the general public. That is, if you pander to the lowest common denominator, you will almost certainly be able to make a profit - and that's exactly what we are seeing here.
I agree, your WB looks much better than I had ever been able to get with my old Sony camcorders, so I gave up and went to Canon. Very nice video, brings back memories. I may have to re-visit Cozumel again.

So, in order - bubffm, thanks. From your description, you are right, it must have been the Rx100, it was a very small camera. I will also try checking the metadata to verify.
Trickster and Nick Hope, thanks, that's exactly the kind of advice that I was looking for. I mostly shoot "run and gun" style, as Nick suggests (although I'd love to try some tripod mounted filming in the future).
I think that you folks have saved me some money this winter, but look out next year. I've got a couple of good trips planned for next year already, so I'll wait until after I get back and see what the market looks like at about this time next year. That will also give me some time to save up for the hit that my wallet will take.
Thanks again, what a great source of information Wetpixel is!

Since TimG is a moderator, I can't hit the "like this" button on his post, but I would echo his comments. I rather like the composition, but it needs a bit more snap. His suggestions ought to help. Good luck.
Thanks very much. Looks like we use the same video housing. Although I'm on an older sony camera and have the standard housing, not the pro version.
Yes, I have been using Light and Motion housings for a while now. This is my first Canon, though, having switched over after having too much trouble color correcting my Sony HC-9. Backscatter suggested going with the Canon over the Sony when I was upgrading. It looks as if you have been able to get your CX550 to work very well, though.
