    I recently purchased a FLIP HD version with its additional accessory waterproof case as a web special set from DELL for $199.

    For >$500, are you looking at a camera/housing/lights combo? What do you need your camera setup to do?

    I'm not really into video, but I bought a Panasonic TS-1 still camera that has good video capabilities. Besides that, it is one of the better waterproof still cameras, which is what I bought it for. Last I looked the TS-1 was replaced by the slightly upgraded TS-2.

    I have an Olympus 1030SW, love it. It's a digital camera that can take underwater video, I'm looking to upgrade to an Olympus Stylus Tough 8010 that has HD video capture. Kinda spendy, but well worth it due to the toughness!

    I have the Olympus Stylus Tough and think it's a great outdoor camera that can also take video. It's HD, crush proof, freeze proof, and water proof.

    The only caution I can think of is most of it's zoom is electronic, not optical. Which means its great for taking pictures and video close to you. But not so hot for filming the bear that is 1/2 mile away.

    we picked up the santo X acti. for aobut 250... HD water proof and camera. 9 mega pix... the only issue i have with it is the zoom its clears it is too hard to steady at full zoom needs a stick
