Canon claims to have an underwater scene mode that would be fun to try out. The street price is $329.
The Fujifilm Z33WP is design and styled more for the younger set the feature that works for angler is the waterproof capabilities to 10 feet. Fujifilm likes the style and size as its big difference.
