Your best bet is to look in the Photography section and post this topic in that section where it will probably get more responses

that said here are a few topics:

There are a few compact cameras now that are water/dust resistant. I highly recommend one of these for caving. My Pentax Optio W-20 is great because I am never afraid to take it out and get that photo no matter how muddy or wet it is in the cave.

My Nikon Coolpix L-3 has been great. For $150, it's been an excellent caving camera. One thing, though...it shoots a little dark, so open the exposure to 1.3
