I'm looking for recommendations on new underwater cameras for under
$200.00.  Are there such cameras?  Thanks in advance.

There are only a few option in that price range.  I can tell
you about one of them in detail, but it's easier to point you
at my WWW page about that camera (the Ikelite Aquashot):
http://www.ph.utexas.edu/~read/aquashot/

The other competitors in the inexpensive U/W camera race are:
Bonica Snapper
Sealife Reefmaster
Sea & Sea has one; I can't recall which model is cheapest.

For my money, I think the Aquashot is the best of the bunch.
Others may disagree.  The Aquashot can be purchased with
strobe and macro kit and carrying bag for about $220.  If you
want to skip the strobe (not advised), you can get the body alone
for $55.  This does NOT include the disposable cameras which
go in the Aquashot, though.

Check 'em out.

I just bought a SeaLife Reefmaster.  $175.  Goes to 167 ft.  It is a
housing with an inner camera.  Closest you can get is 4 ft.  Some of my
pictures were as good as my husband's MM-II EX.  E-mail me if you would
like more info.

Could offer another camera at the same price: BONICA YELLOW SNAPPER.
