    I have narrowed down the choice of a digital camera for general
    purpose and for rarely if needed also underwater to these cameras:

    I want a camera that will take very good pics also at night, with low
    light and mainly when travelling, so also not so heavy and compact in
    size if possible.

    Rarely I may use it for underwater photography so if case available

    Which of the following models you recommend me ?

    Olympus C5050 or C6060

    Canon: G5,  S50, S60 or A80

    Any other brand or models you recommend me ?

    I dont even know if the above models are still produced.

    I think you mean the 5060. And the 5050 is the one people still want.
    It's been discontinued.

    Those look good, too.

    All I know is that I use the C5050. And it's a workhorse that delivers
    very good photographs particularly in RAW mode. Just get a 512-1MG CF
    card, and a protective tube and UV filter or something for the lens,
    and you're set. The underwater housing, their PT-015, is also very
    well built (almost a steal for the money). Serves as good general
    protection against dust, sand and the elements otherwise, as well.

    I have a Canon S50 and am quite happy with it. If I were buying new I might
    get the S60 instead as it is the current model. You can see some of the pix
    I've taken at photos.yahoo.com/sjhouse - just the raw take without any
    manipulation or cleanup.
