I need a waterproof camera to take canoeing, kayaking, camping, etc. I've done a little research the last couple of days but before that have zero experience with waterproof/underwater cameras.
I've considered a housing for my G12 and I've also seen several new "tough" cameras recently released that look interesting.
Would the G12 blow the "tough" cameras away in terms of IQ, ISO performance, shutter lag, etc? And what else do I need to be aware of when comparing the different options?
I would be ok with some loss of IQ and ISO performance if a waterproof P&S is less bulky, easier to maintain, etc. I would probably be happy with a waterproof P&S that performed as good as the Panasonic ZS3 that my wife uses.
I very much appreciate any help.
