I was looking at some of the Sanyo stuff, but the reviews were less the stellar.
Here's the one that a buddy of mine uses, great HD quality too. You'll have to buy the waterproof housing for it though, the waterproof case is bomber and it does not obstruct the functionality. IMO, it has Much better resolution than those pentax's and optio's.

Also, here's another page with a bunch of other waterproof camcorders, kinda big and bulky to take on the river though unless you store it in your boat, and eddy out to shoot video.

Here's video of us on Fossil Creek, shot with the HD Flip Camcorder. There is some footage in there shot with the NON-HD Flip cam too, which you can definately tell the 2 apart.
