My primary reason for getting the one I did was for the waterproof and shock proof capability.
The camera Leo got has a better zoom and other features that I've already got covered with my other cameras.
I was looking at the gopro, but it seemed to be much more 'video' oriented.
We're planning on a trip where we need to pack pretty light, and I wanted the ability to do underwater pictures. So lugging the big DSLR was out for a few reasons.
Since I wanted to take just normal pictures and video, I figured the GoPro was both out of my budget range and really just seemed to be more of an 'action' oriented video camera.
So far I'm pretty impressed with the little Nikon I got and I think it will do a great job, at what I want it to do.
I've been testing it out in the pool, and both the video and pictures work very well, both in and out of the water.
