Default Powershot SD4500 IS, SD4000 IS, or SD1400 IS ?

I'm quite confused as to what to buy. I really like the features on SD4500 IS and SD4000 IS isn't too bad. I really like the unerwater feature in SD1400 IS though.

What are your suggestions?

Without knowing what you want to mainly use it for and in what situations then it will be hard to say.

Welcome to Steve's by the way

I also want to use it for fun, as a teenager. So the underwater feature is really good, but that is all that I like from the 1400 IS, otherwise it's really the 4500 IS that I'm going for.

I could be wrong but the SD1400 IS isn't an underwater cam unless I'm missing anything from the specs I can find.

The links you posted are not opening for me.

It has the feature. You have to buy a case in order to use it underwater.
So I've decided to get the SD4500, because the current camera I have could just use an underwater case

Thanks for the help!

Good plan.

I have a Panasonic TS2 for underwater photographs and they are great fun, everyone loves to have a play. You can get soft underwater cases from aquapac, not sure how good they are but I used to use the ones for mobile phones when I sailed etc.

Oh really? Are they strong enough?

I'm only scared that the case isn't as good for the camera so that it might disfunction.

Actually those packs are not that good, as you go deeper, water do get in. They are good of the accidental drop in the water, where with some air in them. The item floats for a quick pickup. Go with a case if you plan to snorkel or scuba if you do not get a waterproof camera rated at 10m.
