    Action Video Camera

    Anyone here up to the use of a video camera like this. I came across this the other day for the first time and its an amazing little device.

    Was thinking of Jeff and canoeing.

    Always did think those catamarans looked like a riot...

    Camera looks cool as well.

    I just picked up a cheap hd camera for my RC planes. 40$, but unfortunately, it's pink. But it's life span may not be all that long.

    Considering the number of action sports I'm involved in these days, here's an example of how one of my videos would look:

    A guy at work has one. He has taken some runs on his motorcycle with it. Surprisingly smooth shots. He is diving Barbados (the rat fink) in a few week and will get some "films" of a wreck they are going to dive there.
