Kodak's Playsport Waterproof Camera

Anyone other than cataraftgirl have any experience with Kodak's Playsport? Tips or tricks for mounting it on a raft? Bought one yesterday on Amazon and will be taking it on the San Juan in two weeks.

Here's a link: Amazon.com: Kodak PlaySport (Zx3) HD Waterproof Pocket Video Camera (Black): Camera & Photo

Reviews seem to be overall above average. Clearly a tier below Go Pro, but a good deal at $130, I think.

Any info on battery life, ruggedness, screen brightness, etc?

Think my neighbor bought one for a cruise trip as I vaguely remember helping him set it up. I'll ask

i got one of these and they work pretty good, i would recommend getting one of those "Gorilla grip" tripods, they are bendable and and have magnetic feet, i got mine on amazon for like 10 bucks, as for the camera it works great underwater, i wouldnt recomend using the 1080 for action shots because it gets kinda choppy and the imaging is pretty clear with the 720

Great advice. I went ahead and bought the "bundle" on Amazon that included the bendable, magnetic tripod so that's good news.
