Okay, so I'm a low tech Luddite. I'm only interested in the digital equivalent of a Kodak Brownie for routine pix. I'll leave the pro stuff to the pros. These specs will suit me and my needs just fine for under 300 bucks:

SeaLife’s cameras are designed for divers and are easier to use underwater than any other digital underwater camera. The DC300 Digital camera features new Land & Sea“ Exposure Modes, One-Button Operation and Easy-Dive Controls. This 3.3mp camera allows divers to capture underwater encounters or land adventures in high resolution and bright colors. The diver can decide to keep or delete a picture with simply another push of the shutter button while prompted. The DC300 also incorporates the New Quick Review feature for scrolling through pictures already captured. The camera is fully rubber armored for comfortable handling and ruggedness to 200ft. The DC300 also is completely compatible with all other SeaLife snap-on lenses and flashes including, the Macro Set (SL959) and Wide Angle Lens (SL970) which allow the photographer to take even more impressive underwater pictures.
