Deck Mounted Action Cam Any suggestions?

I'm looking for a reasonably priced HD cam to mount on my deck or possible helmet. Any Suggestions?

Kodak Playsport video camera. Shoots in HD, waterproof, $140. Not as many mounting accessories as the GoPro however. I attach mine to a mini tripod, then tuck the folded up tripod legs under a cam strap on my cooler which sits in front of me on my cataraft. I snug the strap down tight and also attach a "leash" to the camera so I won't lose it if I go upside down or it gets knocked off. I haven't found the perfect helmet mount yet....still looking. I have been very happy with the footage I've gotten with this camera so far. It's small, easy to use, and it has an LCD view screen which the GoPro doesn't.

Thanks Cataraftgirl

I decided to go with the GoPro HD Hero (HumbleOutdoors ~$215).

The product I purchased is at the end of it's model life, so it was highly discounted,and had tons of mounting options.. Thanks Again!

Have fun with your camera. Make sure you use some kind of leash for the camera so you don't lose your investment in the river.
