Agree. Been using the new Stylus Tough 8000. 12 MP. Very compact. I got the floating strap and clip it to my PFD with a mini-biner. Slides right down in the front of the PFD. Has image stabilization, which is nice when you're bouncing around in an eddy trying to get a shot.
Will say that I've sent it back for warranty service twice. First time was seal failure on first use in salt water. Second time was user error. Didn't get the charger cover closed back tight after charging. First time, Oly replaced the whole camera. Second time, they replaced the "motherboard" and lens. No charge either time.
Not SLR, but shoots good pix and decent video for my purposes. Good boater cam, IMHO.
