Here's some cameras that came out at CES this past weekend:

Fujifilm adds GPS module, geotagging functionality to waterproof Finepix XP30 camera -- Engadget
720p, waterproof, shockproof, gps

(waterproof case for the contourgps coming shortly -ContourHD case has different size specs), GPS

Kodak intros Easyshare Touch, Mini and Sport cameras, Playfull and Playsport camcorders -- Engadget
1080p, waterproof, dustproof, shockproof, no GPS

Swann's shockproof, waterproof Sportscam straps on your cranium, captures momentous occasions -- Engadget
VGA not 720p or 1080p, shockproof, waterproof, no gps

Sony reveals 3D capturing Cyber-shot cameras, includes world's first compact capable of 1080/60p video -- Engadget
some waterproof, 60fps for sports shots and/or gps

Similar pricing

Only ContourGPS reads to have waterproof (with case), 1080p, 60 fps (at 720p) and gps specs combined into one camera.

Contourgps (case coming soon) out now, rest shortly...

I have always had good luck with the Olympus Stylus Tough....minus the one that sank into the depths of the Owyhee when i was pulling the dog into the boat. It is small enough to live in my vest pocket, it takes ok pictures, and it can take a beating. The only issue I have with waterproof cameras is the lens fogging. It takes a few dips in the river with the lense cover open to get a water off the glass. Rain-X would probably solve this problem.

We just got the submersible Nikon CoolPix AW100 and love it so far, though it has not been submersed yet... My mother gave it to us as a Christmas gift and she's a professional photographer and used to own camera shops. She prefers Leica but said the Nikon is the best "tough" camera on the market. It's a 16mp camera and my last was a 3.4mp camera so we're stoked!

The Nikon looks nice. I'd bet you are going to love it!

Canon has a brand new Powershot D20 that looks really promising also.

Here's 3 more waterproof point and clicks that were announced yesterday, Feb 7:

Canon D20 Canon ventures back in the water with the rugged D20: Digital Photography Review

Pentax W-G2 Pentax refreshes its rugged camera lineup with the Optio WG-2 series -- Engadget

Olympus TG-820 Olympus announces TG-820 back-lit CMOS rugged camera: Digital Photography Review

Starting, I believe, with the Nikon AW 100, these and a couple others mentioned in my prior post now have 1080p, GPS and are waterproof, among other specs.

Next stop: lightweight mirrorless 4k video full frame dslr's w/o need of casing to waterproof for less than $300.

I have a Pentax Optio that spent 6 days under the cooler in water on the Grand and by the end of the trip dried out and took pictures the last week and still works perfectly. They really mean waterproof. Don't ask how it ended up under the cooler. It's a sad story.
