Handheld HD video cams..Do you?

So, I purchased one of these hand-held video cams for my wife for christmas. I freaking cant wait till I, errrr She opens it, LOL. Who all has one, and which do you have? I bought this one:

Kodak Playsport (Zx3) in Black- Waterproof to 10 feet. records 1080p@30fps, 720p(30&60fps), wvga recording options, 5mp still camera. EIS, Facial Recognition, 4x digital zoom, expandable up to 32gb of SD/HC space. oh and its WATERPROOF! LOL thats why I am stoked! We have always said oh damn wish we had a camera to record that, Cell phone vids suck, so finally, I got her something we will both enjoy ;)

I bought a Sony t90 about a year and a half ago. its a 12MP still that takes hd video. Its a great camera over all. compact and versatile.

You are brave to test the ability in the water. lol.

Nice vid ... like your sound effects ... lol.

How deep can you go with it, according to the manual?

I use larger Vid Cameras, but am looking for a good consumer model to take on vacations.

Yea, it was scary at first....It goes to 3 meters/10 feet. More than enough for snorkeling or just having fun on the water.

This is small, lightweight, overall nice camera for the $$$

Hmmm ... Thanks.

I wouldn't test it ... but I wonder how long it could be submerged at those depths before water began to seep through.

Well, there are extensive videos on youtube, some 4-5 minute videos of people snorkeling and what not. I got suckered in LOL. And it can take a drop, says its shock resistant.

But, fast moving, like from a car, did great, There will be some more videos on my channel soon if you want to get a better Idea of how it does before you buy. MUCH better choice than the Flip Video cams(they are so cheap) I handled and recorded with each, Kodak wins hands down, and up to 32gb SD/HC card for upto 8 hours of HD video, Flip-most is 8 gb on board ONLY.

I have the Kodak ZI8. I love it since it has an external mic. jack. Quality of the video is top notch.

My Purchase was between The Playsport and Zi8. I thought, well, 2.5" screen is nice, but a half inch difference....eh, external mic jack is nice too. I weighed out the pros and cons for our tastes....Im sure either choice would have been a good one.
