Hi gracejourney,

I would get the underwater housing for the XZ-1, rather than one of the outdoor P&S cams. It will go far deeper than the TG-2 if you plan to scuba dive and an external flash can be added which helps with color correction underwater .while I have not used theTG-2 I have compared the XZ-1 to the the Panasonic and Nikon versions and theXZ-1 is so much better in image quality.

For video however I found the Nikon AW100 better.If you are only snorkeling, consider a Dicapac  housing for the XZ-1 , I have used one for over a year with an old Canon IXUS70 and performance has exceeded expectations especially for the $40 I paid for it!
