I've been using a tetra for 2 years. In sept. of 2001 it flooded at the cover(my fault because I was in a hurry) and destroyed the Olympus C-3040 within. I had insurance, but had trouble finding a replacement to go in it. One size on these does not always fit all. I found a C-4000 on ebay and bought a C-3030 from a friend as a backup but have never had to use it. I have taken it on about 200 dives since then and have had no further problems exept the 2 gigabytes woth of photos on my hard drive that I never seem to find the time to edit.
I like this setup because it's light, compact and easy to pack in carry-on luggage. On the local dive boats, I can take it as well as my hunting gear. With the SLR + housing + strobes setup I'm sort of forced to make a choice between lobsters or pictures of lobsters.
