Default New dive camera coming out

Found this the other day on CNN, weird place I thought. But it is a 720p HD camera mounted on a mask. It comes out next month and for only $250. It is even good down to 115 ft. My sister is a photographer and says the stats look pretty good. I thought some of the divers on here might be interested. I am considering some overtime myself. Here is the link. Sorry can't get the hyperlink to work.

Any air in it will offset the "heavy"...if that makes sence. If they designed it well, it would be neatrually buyant underwater.

I saw some articles about this a few months ago. At $300 big ones, it's not that bad of a price if it works good and holds up. I might have to look into getting one for Christmas. I was going to get a waterproof case for my little camera, but I like the idea of hands free without the goofy helmet cam. Sorry Clay, I don't want to wear a helmet underwater. I was going to try and mount a camera on the speargun, but that would probably just get in the way.

I thought about that too... but then I figured none of my dive buddies would want me to get them on video if it meant pointing the gun at them.

Look at the specs of this thing. Especially the battery life.:doh With regular alkaline batteries, you are only going to get about 16 MINUTES, yes, MINUTES of use. With Lithium batteries, you willget 2 hours of video use. So basically, everytime you take this thing out, you are going to have to use new batteries. That's a pretty good deal breaker for me. 16 minutes is less than one full dive.
