I don't really know much about cameras so I would appreciate if someone could fill me in.
My mum has asked for a underwater camera for her birthday as she'll be doing a fair bit of snorkelling in the next few months. I suspect she'd also like to use it above land.
I see a lot of cameras are waterproof, but don't know if these are water resistant similar to watches that can get wet but aren't appropriate for full time water use.
Can anyone suggest an appropriate camera for the above mentioned use? Looking for <$600 if possible.
Thanks in advance.
