Anyone used the Cyber-shot DSC-TX200V under water?

I have one, here are photos!

I have a TX200V, and just returned from using it snorkeling in Maui.

It performed flawlessly on multiple immersions in ocean water, I've attached some photos. Not the most amazing photography (I forgot to turn on the flash, and it was a bit murky). But my boys were thrilled!

One note, I also took along a TX10, supposedly waterproof also, but water seeped into the battery/flash card compartment, shorting out/corroding one of the battery contacts inside the camera, and doing who knows what other damage. I'm not optimistic Sony will do anything about this.

The TX200 compartment compared to the TX10 seems better designed - one compartment instead of 2, and the seal looks more substantial.

This camera is awesome!
