Nikon Coolpix has been very reliable for me, and taken many great photos and video, battery life is excellent, and it turns on and shoots rapidly. it also does not fog up nearly as much as the old olympus tough i had for too long. picture quality is awesome imo, except lack of real zoom or wide (standard for point and shoot)
i keep it clipped in to a mini cold-shut locking biner in my pfd pocket. Another thing i figured out on the fly was to protect it by keeping it in a beer coozie to protect it... (figured that one out at the upper salt put-in)... lol. it's worked well enough to keep using it since.
heres good reviews for all the above:

This camera (Nikon AW1)looks very intriguing although it has terrible reviews on amazon, due to price and potential seal failure with interchangeable lenses. I am ready for a better version of this, more zoom, more quality... not if its gonna fail tho.
