    I have a Canon Powershot A80, and I am looking to get a waterproof case. The specification for that is <A href="http://www.powershot.com/powershot2/a80/accessory.html">here</A>. (http://www.powershot.com/powershot2/a80/accessory.html)

    I dont know about those cameras, I looked on both their websites but couldnt find details. ..

    Hope this is helpful

    I own a Olympus PT010 UW case for Olympus C4000Z for 2 years now and used it down to 40m without any problem, though it's guaranteed to 30m.

    I don't think there are any cases for Coolpix 5200 but there are chances for Oly770. Check on this site uwdigitalcamera which I recommend warmly. You can even ask the boss Yuzo Kanda any advise about housings and UW photo items, he will be more than happy to help you.

    Note that even though we have high taxes in UE, it's always cheaper to order from Japan for this kind of items...unless Greece has a big market for digital cases, which I doubt.

    thanks guys for your reply, i found out that both cameras can have a waterproof case and used at 45meters without and problems. i still can't decide between the beautiful compact 5mp 3x zoom Nikon coolpix 5200, or the fantastic 10x zoom, 4mp of olympus c-770 =:>
