Yes, DMC-GF3. I have it setup in a way that I don't need to use to much of the touch screen. I can just use the hardware buttons to change settings if need be. I only really use the touch screen to select point of focus. Good to know about the tampon trick, I take those flat pads could also work?

Yes, I am as we plan to get one of those swim with a dolphin packages. I am deciding to get a non-baggie housing for my GF3, and I have heard some some very good marks about the Meike case, though most of those were for the NEX variants, I am sure the GF3 model should be just as nice. Plus at about 110-130, the price is pretty fair. Then I noticed on the internet that I should also be looking to using some of those go pro anti-mist/fog pack to minimize the occurrence of that occurring. Just to be sure, is that really needed?

Not sure what the Galaxy NX has to do with this, but if I didn't have the Sony it would have been an interesting choice to get. 

 

I have seen the Ewa Marine, but the price is around $200-300(unless I am looking at the wrong places?), which is more than I prefer to spend. The Digipac looks good, but is there any other suggestions like it, or is Digipac best in class? Thanks.

Well maybe I wasn't too clear, but I have own both cameras. Well I want to use one of my cameras when swimming with dolphins and going snorkeling(nothing too deep, like 5-10 feet at most), without getting one of those compact water and shock proof camera(like the Olympus tough series) as I don't need/want another camera. Thank you.

Well not to get off topic, but the rumors going around is Olympus plans to bring out a model one step above the OMD, and will allow users to use 4/3 and m4/3 lenses. So, I can't say they are really abandoning their DSLR users, just wanting to move them to their mirrorless system.
