Moving overseas and need camera advice
Oct 18, 2012

My wife and I have been selected for the Peace Corps and will be moving overseas early 2013.  We have an older Fuji (6MP) digital camera. I was thinking about updating my camera before we leave.

Things I would like:

-great photos AND video

-possibly waterproof (not sure where we will be yet and what conditions we'll see)

-Under $450

-Compact (no giant DLSRs)

In looking online it seems like the Olympus TG-1 might fit the bill.  Then I saw the video for the GoPro3 last night and almost pulled out my credit card.

I'd like to get some advice from avid users on what they suggest.  I won't be jumping off cliffs or surfing  like in the GoPro video, but I'm sure we will see some natural beauty we'll want to capture.

This question has not been answered yet.
