I would like to ask some help regarding this 3 P&S
   I will be using this for underwater photography
   Which would get your pick, after reading details about it, here are some of       
           the things i saw

Advantages of Canon 860
   3 inch LCD Screen
   Cheaper underwater casing by 2k
   Canon brand
   
Advantages of Sony w170 
   Sturdy design (the casing is not as scratch prone compared with the canon)
   Quick rotate button, (no need to push certain buttons to get certain functions)
   5x optical zoom
   has macro mode

Olympus 1030 sw
   waterproof up to 33 ft
   shockproof up to 5 ft
   plus the underwater casing, sure thing this camera
   wont be broken when dive into the water.
   has extentions and accesories

Please share your inputs, suggestions are open
thanks a lot  ;D

I agree regarding the 1030sw. I've read at least two separate incidents that involve the 1030sw to freeze and lock-up even when you take the battery out and re-install it.
