Well I bit the bullet and bought a new video camera.
Its waterproof to 5 feet, light (only 8.5 ounces), takes 8 MP pics, 5X optical zoom and pretty small and compact. I figure it will be perfect for backpacking and packrafting.
I realize the video quality will not be superb, but I imagine it will get ALOT more use being compact and in my coat vest pocket rather than in the pack in a waterproof case.
I also purchased 2 extra battiers at $21 apiece as well as a 32 GB flash card. Looking forward to trying this little guy out.
Anyone else have one?? Thoughts on this camera??
