Camera got water in it on trip to Galapagos...ruined!!

Summary: I bought this camera a few months ago and used it quite a bit. But the reason I ordered it was for our most recent trip to the Galapagos. We went snorkeling and I used it on the first and second day and all was good. The third day I used it I noticed that I could not get it to work once in the water. When I got back to the ship I opened it up to take out the batter (figuring that the battery needed to be charged) only to have water come out!!
Summary: I was very surprised that this camera actually performs fairly well. While there are limited options for manual functionality, it does what it needs to do taking photos. For the casual photographer, does everything you want it to do. It can also be a good companion to a DSLR as well. The camera's option to support SD & Memory Stick is a great option. No longer do you have to be tied to proprietary Sony MS. This is definitely a step forward.
Sony falsely advertises that this camera is waterproof

Summary: Sony's warranty is no good. I bought this camera for my vacation and used it in a pool. The camera leaked and stopped working. When I sent it to Sony they told me that they found corosion and the warranty was void. I told them that it was warranted to be waterproof and if the seals failed it should be covered. They just kept repeating their words and refused to honor their warranty. I will not purch from Sony again. Very disapointed in Sony.
Summary: I purchased this item based on my experience from other sony products, but this one is a disappointment. I took it on vacation and midway through the camera died on me when water got in near the multimedia compartment. Water activities were at the beach and mostly in the pool. I explained to them that I think it was design flaw where the internal compartments are sealed off from outside elements; they were not adeqautely sealed.
Summary: I've just come home from a day at the beach and my camera is kaput, broken, won't work, finished, trashed... whatever you want to say. I thought (more like hoped) maybe the battery was dead. Nope! Some how, some way water got into my waterproof camera. If you have this camera now, do not take it in the water. If you plan on buying this camera, please realize that it is not, I repeat, NOT waterproof. Other than that, it is a good camera.
Summary: Indoor shot quality is definitely better than most waterproof camera. But the touchscreen performance is erratic and there so many similarly named functions that makes navigating confusing. But after you get past that, the camera should be fun to use.
Summary: My wife dropped her old Sony Cybershot in a rice paddy while in Bali and it was ruined. Ever since I've been looking for a shock/waterproof camera. I bought this because you can now use SDHC cards like every other camera in the world, but I promptly lost my charging cable. Found out it requires a proprietary cable... except they din't have it (too new). I took advice comment below and after waiting 3 weeks I did get another cable.
