Rating: no ratingYou don't see many true underwater/weatherproof compacts these days, but Canon have the A1, which is very useful for anyone wanting a camera for taking snorkelling, skiing, snowboarding etc. The viewfinder is large enough to use with a mask or goggles, and the mode switch can be operated with gloved hands. The lens can easily be switched from Auto focus on land, to fixed focus underwater, and the outer casing is pretty sturdy to take knocks. Some may find the wide-angle only lens limiting.
