Kodak PlaySport Underwater HD

I saw the Kodak Play Sport on Amazon a while ago, however, once I realized the one I was looking at shot 1080p HD video up to 10ft underwater, it went right into the cart (or wish list until the purchase was approved by the Mrs, either way the intent was there). This camcorder was an upgrade from my old Aiptek HD that was recently passed on to my brother who is currently using it to shoot videos of him playing with toy trucks (tool). So far I a super excited about shooting with this thing. It has minimalist hardware controls, quick access to a 5MP camera mode, 720p, 720p (60), and 1080p video. It also has Electronic Image Stabilization (EIS) and face tracking (which totally works shooting video underwater)! Form wise, the cam is light but sturdy feeling and fits my palm perfectly.
I promised the peeps on Buzz some test footage, so here it it, footage from my dirty pool (new pool guy sucks.. I don't care if he's 13 he should take his time and do the job right...heh). Enjoy "kids jumping into a dirty pool", shot by me.

The things some people say it offers that other services don’t (cross device calls and texts) can be achieved for free with Google Voice and there is very little difference to the end users. The biggest things Project Fi has going for it are these two things:

1. WiFi Assistant

This could/should be huge… like really super duper huge. Free high speed WiFi all over the place. Stream and browse at will! That said I’ve been on Project Fi for 4 months and have only had 3 or 4 keys. This needs to improve drastically in order to mitigate the large price increase people coming from far more data friendly plans would…
