You may not be able to take that adorable little shark home with you, but you can capture video of it nibbling on your toes with the new Kodak Playfull Waterproof Video Camera.

The 720p camera comes stocked with a 2-inch screen, 18MB of internal memory, a 2X digital zoom, and an expansion card slot. Waterproof video cameras have taken the dive before, but the Kodak comes in at a cheap $99.95 price point.

Unfortunately, you won't be able to take this addition to the Playfull video camera line all the way down to the Titanic. There are limits on its waterproofing. It can handle up to 10 feet of water for up to two hours at a time. Push the limits and it may turn into electronic chum.

The Playfull Waterproof could end up inspiring a whole school of YouTube Jacques Cousteaus. It is currently available for preorder. Stay tuned for a full CNET review soon.
