Looking for a camera to thow on the boat and leave there. $100 or less and waterproof. Due to the miracle of cheap Chinese labor, I see there are multiple products that fit the bill. Any experience with:
-Bell and Howell Splash $69
-Nikon Coolpix S30 $100
-Olympus Stylus Tough-6000 $100 (refurb)
-VistaQuest 8920 $52
-Olympus 10MP $50 (refurb)
-Kodak easy share sport $100
-Coleman Extreme 5MP $50
I just want something that is waterproof and I can use to take pictures of fish and topless women:rofl:

I have a Stylus Tough 8010 that does everything I need plus I use it at work every day to document the job progress and issues.
More then you wanted to spend though. $199 at Best Buy.
Still have my Olympus Stylus 410 that I used for years before that.
I do not see why any of the ones you mentioned wouldn't do what you want.
Not that much $ invested if you didn't like it.
Compare them here.
You can compare any models you want then look at the three categories and how they rated.
Do not go by the prices they have listed. Shop around.

I ended up ordering a Kodak Easy Share factory refurb on ebay. $70, free shipping, and include a 4 GB card. I am not really a Kodak fan but it got the best reviews of the cheap waterproof cameras so I am going to give it a try.
I'll try and post a few pics from it when I get it.
