It seems expensive for a "pocketable" camera, however I think it is the best choice (price vs quality) for underwater photography. The housing is 400$, that is a total of 1200$. An Ikelite housing for a large sensor camera is 1500$, at least.
DPR should change the voting system for prize challenges, at least.
