New camera for scuba diving

I got my Fuji f200 out of the cupboard, fired it up and the zoom lens stuck.  It had killed itself in the cupboard over the summer!

I was looking at the yellow Nikon W300 on web and London Camera Exchange had £20 off the yellow version.  So it was meant to be and I bought one from the local branch.

It does depth and gps so all my relearning of perl and exiftool to hack the depth out of my dive computer logs and match with photos is now redundant.  Except ... I bet it stores the depth in Nikon makernotes rather than exif.

The camera looks good though.  Only a small sensor but it is supposed to be waterproof to 30 metres.  Without a housing.  Will be testing that very soon.
