Good deal on a waterproof camera

Found a good deal on Amazon for a waterproof camera - a Pentax Optio W80 for about $175! Normal sale price is more like $250, and I think retail is about $300. Here is a link to the cameras at Amazon.

I have had an older version, the W20, for many years now and have been very happy with it. So I have ordered one of these guys as an upgrade for myself. It has arrived and I look forward to trying it out this weekend.

To see how the older W20 worked, I used it as a comparison point for reviews I did of the Oregon Scientific ATC-2K and the GoPro Hero 3.

Note - the prices aren't listed on the main screen, and it does seem to change some (I got it for $170, with free delivery and a free memory card). I suggest adding all of the ones that don't have prices listed to your Cart, then viewing the cart to see which is cheapest (removing all the rest).
