Waterproof camcorder: look ma, no ugly case needed

Who doesn't wish they could share their snorkelling adventures with everyone on YouTube? Get in touch with your inner Jacques Cousteau with this waterproof camcorder from Hammacher Schlemmer.

The Shirtpocket Underwater Camcorder ($200) is waterproof down to 10 feet, so not designed for scuba excursions, but it will be tons of fun on a snorkel trip, or just make some interesting viewing from the hot tub. Not exactly sure why they call it the "Shirtpocket" camcorder — last time I went either snorkeling or hot-tubbing, shirts were not involved.

The camcorder features a 2-1/2" TFT LCD screen, and the 8-megapixel camera can capture up to 60 minutes of 30 fps video at 640 x 480 on the included 2GB SD card, and it has a 4X digital zoom. It can also shoot up to 300 3264 x 2448 JPEG files on that card, but it supports up to an 8GB card. It plays back MP3 files, and a USB port keeps file transfer simple enough, even if your hands are all prune-like from staying in the pool too long.
