samsung W300 camera

Anyone have experience with this?

waterproof, tripod mountable, does 1080p at 30fps, takes microsd, and can recharge through a usb port. Was thinking i could make a mount on my raft and have a poor mans gopro hero without the "open the case" recharging issues. Plus lcd

Its $120 at Costco.com, and they are good about returning if its a POS

Can it film at 720 @ 60fps? if not then you might not be happy with it. 1080 @ 30fps can be grainy & jumpy for fast action filming. That being said.....I use a Kodak Playsport which is waterproof without a case, tripod mount, LCD screen, and films in 1080 or 720 for $130 at Wally World. Another poor man's GoPro that works great for my "boat cam." My problem now is that I also want a "helmet cam" and this camera doesn't work that well for that (larger & heavier).
If it's easy to return, I'd say give it a try and see what you think.

What about a contour? The new roam is a bit cheaper and mildly waterproof; I use a contour+ with the waterproof case and it seems to be bombproof in water thus far...
