FWIW my Nikon Coolpics takes decent pictures but it does not take good close up shots in my experience. Other than that its a been a good camera.

I love taking pictures and so over the years I have had several cameras. I had a Nikon N5005 (film), and a D70 (digital), and a Sea&Sea Motomarine II (underwater). But the Panasonic Lumix they are talking about sounds like a winner. Being able to use it in situations where there is spray coming over the bow (Smackdaddy's Big Freakin Sail!) or underwater or for the sunset all in one package. It sounds like it will meet all your needs and exceed them too. I think I need to go look at cameras again...
