Have an earlier 'generation' of this camera, it's excellent equipment.

good to hear from you Bill, Fred

I especially like the lens / filter adapter option. The pics looked really sharp when I played with it. Some of the underwater cams I've tried have compromised image quality when used for regular photography e.g. family events, scenery, etc. This one would not be any compromise off the water.

With full HD it's really a better choice than the GoPro for flyfishing videos as well especially with polarization (or fisheye). I can't imagine using something that has no viewfinder unless you buy the little monitor contraption.

Expect some underwater HD video from me soon...

Good point on the GoPro, at a similar price point ($400.00).
