Default Waterproof AA-Battery Camera?

Hi--I'm looking for a waterproof (w/o housing) point and shoot type camera that uses AA batteries.

Any suggestions?

Thanks.

Not off hand. I can give you a suggestion if it can use a battery pack.

I'd really prefer AA-batteries. Want to use the same batteries for my GPS, Headlamp, Radios etc.

Thanks,

Ron

The majority of camera in this class, from Olympus, Fuji, Canon, and Pentax alluse proprietary batteries instead of AA cells. I have listed the models for quick referenc

Olympus Tough Series
Fuji Z-33
Canon D-10
Pentax W-80 and WS-80

Have a great day.

Thanks for your help. I was afraid that nothing like that used AA batteries. That would explain why I couldn't find anything on my own.

What about the AGFA Photo DC-600uw or Vivitar 6200w? Are these bad? I am also looking for a cheap camera to send with my son on his trip to South America with a school science team. I also sawis something called the Suprema Digital Dive camera but it looks dubious at best.
