    I use a Nikon S2... pretty nice point and shoot with video capability. Mine is 6 or 7 years old so I'm sure there's a lot of improvement in a comparable model. Its about the size of a deck of cards. I bought a spare battery pack and carry an extra memory card. Does everything I need for minimal weight and bulk.

    I had a cannon powershot sd1300 is, it was just about perfect, took reallllllyyy clear pictures no matter what the conditions. the best part was it fit snug in shirt pockets so it didn't fall out, but it wasn't bulkey in the slightest. un fortunatly after falling through a swamp I came home and put my shirt on a chair and mom put it in hte wash, with the camera in it....

    It was fairily cheap(100 bucks), and I got hundreds of wild life photos (including some flying shots of grouse)

    Trustworthy down in Soldotna had a pair of glasses similar to this http://www.gizmag.com/eyez-video-sunglasses/18808/ this spring. They had a display set up at the back/center counter. looked awesome! Didn't see a price tag though, and Momma always said if you have to ask you cant afford it.

    I have seen these in the Cabelas catalog and thought they would make a nice little gizmo to have.

    I recently picked up a Kodak Playsport and it has been great so far. The video is 1080p HD and it takes 5mp stills. The only things I don't like are that it is rechargeable only (no way to replace batteries in the field) and the zoom is all digital (no optical) which makes it fairly grainy when zoomed all the way in. The battery thing hasn't proven to be an issue yet. I used it on a three day bear hunt taking several videos and stills and the battery was only down to 1/2 life at the end of the trip. It is also waterproof and can film under water. I captured a shot of a grayling this last weekend which turned out great. It is about the size of an Iphone and runs around $140. Not bad for what it is.
