Sucks at night though. It needs a lot of light to work well.

I have that camera and just recently started using it. :) It's a really nice camera so far, we took it to the lake and I thought the water would be too murky to catch anything, but it actually had a lot of detail to it. I'm just glad we got the headpiece to it so underwater videos are a bit smoother. Anyways, so far it's a very nice and reasonably priced underwater camera.

YAY!!!!!!!!!!!! I finally picked one up at my friends surf shop this weekend!!!!! Haven't got to use it too much yet, but will be taking it on my trip to The Sea of Cortez next week! :) Then when I come home it's on, mermaid videos galore! LOL, now I just need to find some willing mermaid models! Mermaid Bella Blue is still perfecting her swimming techniques so I'm temporarily mer-less...hhhmmmm...any volunteers??!?? LOL! :D

My boyfriend has one that he uses for snowmobiling. It is pretty sweet. I was going to ask him if I could use it in the waterproof case to get video of me swimming. And now I have the picasa program on my computer where I can get great stills from video :D :yay:

They do need a lot of light! I'm thinking about one for mounting on my video housing for shooting stills while I'm shooting video.
