Need a Camcorder Reccomendation

by Fishyak11 / November 28, 2009 7:35 AM PST

Hey guys first post here. Im looking to buy a camcorder to for use during my kayak fishing adventures. price limit is 500$, want it to be HD quality, hand held, easy to use, and waterproof OR splash resistant. I was looking at the Sanyo Xacti VPC-WH1. Read very mixed reviews on it as well as viewed some youtube video of it filming. Underwater filming looks great but above water it doesnt even seem like HD quality. Although through further research i read that youtube sometimes downgrades the quality of videos. What do you guys suggest i look into?
