Thanks guys.

Never knew you can get robust camera like that.

Pentax one looks interesting with those LED at the front for Macro. It is not pricy at about $250.

Aye. The LED ring light's a brilliant idea, especially for a camera that's for underwater use.

But for medical photography, it'd be good, too. Flat, symmetrical lighting, so that, say, the edge of a mole isn't hidden in shadow (I've got a lot of those, so I know what it's like to ID them). Most compact cams' macro modes are for outdoors, for flowers and insects and whatknot, in nice, wide, diffuse sunlight. With lower overhead lights, your hand and your camera would probably get in the way and cast a shadow.

Huh. 'Course, there's probably no way that the Pentax is sodium hypochlorite or alcohol safe, but I'm sure washing it down with disinfectant hand wash and rinsing well wouldn't do it any harm.

Just bought a Canon S100 from Video Pro and got them to price match JB Hi Fi. Bought two extra batteries on eBay. Shall see how the set up pans out.

The Pentax WG-1 looks good but a few review only gave it a so so in picture quality. Anyway I think this is a good camera not only for the hikers but also for kids.
