I'm looking for advice about a simple, compact digital camera and housing
for day to day work surveying reef?
Desirable features:
- fit in bcd pocket
- built in flash good for macro to .75 m or a bit more in clear water.
- simple controls preferably with auto-macro detect
- 10 - 12 megapixel photos
- immediate shutter response (I have enough fish tail shots)
- rapid processing to memory
- 2 - 3 hr battery life
- HD video
- 16 or 32 Gig memory (for vid)

I suspect one of the smaller Canons or Sonys will do the job - but if so,
which one?
