Point & Shoot Cameras

For most people a point and shoot camera is their entrance to the world of underwater photography.  While smaller and cheaper than DSLR’s, point and shoot cameras can stand up to almost any underwater photography challenge. Models range from very simple pocket sized cameras for the complete beginner to advanced cameras with large sensors for the more seasoned shooters.  If you already have a point and shoot rate and review your camera to help out the DPG community.
