Self-contained bullet DV camera

I ran across this DV camera, has anyone used it? Oregon Scientific brands it as water-proof to 10 ft, 30 fps, up to 2 gb of SD memory can be used.

I'd have to say, that's pretty sweet. 2 gig card = 60 mins at 30fps is plenty, and 480 lines of resolution is as good as I get with my Viosport. The unit is a little chunky, but not having the Mini DV camera in a Peli Case between my legs is a big deal. I'm less inclined to bring my helmet cam on hard sections because I don't want to risk a swim attached to 5 pounds worth of hard case.

I bought one and took it to California. I was naive and relied solely on the rubber band for attaching it to my helmet. Long story short, I lost it first time I flipped.

I thought the camera was worth every cent of the $75 I paid on ebay. I will buy another one soon. Easy to use and good quality video.
