9 - Nikon Coolpix S30 - Waterproof  

Nikon Coolpix S30

"The Nikon Coolpix S30 is a waterproof camera that is easy to use and designed to survive being dropped and generally treated in a less than ideal way. This makes it ideal for families or those with small children, especially as its design makes it very easy to use."

Following models switched to a lithium-ion battery instead of AA, making this one of very few waterproof cameras to use AA batteries.
