I'm using a Canon PowerShot 4 megapixel, point-and-shoot camera. The plastic UW housing is made by Canon as well. Camera+housing+256MB memory cost just under $600 at a discount store like Samy's in Venice. It's actually easier to use the camera when it's in the housing because the controls on the camera itself are itty-bitty. Of course, the built-in flash is small and nearly aligned with the lens, so backscatter is always a problem. Sealife will be introducing an external, flash-activated strobe in the next month or so that is intended for use with simple digital point-and-shoots like mine; if I use something like this it could ease the backscatter limitations quite a bit.
