We have had a blast using the Kodak PlaySport. It is easy, you can keep it in your pocket, and you don’t have to worry about getting it wet. And it works, even underwater. I have had mine underwater several times. I cringe everytime I submerge it, but so far it has performed flawlessly.
You have seen some of Sam’s videos; check mine out at my Youtube channel: http://www.youtube.com/user/InshoreNearshore?feature=mhum
Amazon has a special bundle deal with everything you need to start “playing”. And, no, I don’t get any kickbacks from this.
