Help again please?

We borrowed a friends underwater camera for the hubbys dives on our first trip to Belize last year. Problems with the camera left us with a total of five pictures - so we've decided we just want to get our own so that we can get to know it.

Started researching a bit on line and looking at e-bay, and then got swamped with TOO much information about something we know not much about.

The snorkeler amongst us can always use a disposable, but we want a decent first-timers underwater camera for the diver. (Not digital due to the cost!)

Any suggestions from users out there?

My reality check bounced.
