I have the Pentex Optio W60 and love it. http://www.pentaximaging.com/digital-camera/Optio_W60_-_Ocean_Blue/
I am not nice to it but it forgives me and keeps on working.The video quality is not the best but I didn't buy it just for video. You can see soom video I took with it on Youtube.com. Just put "paddlingfan1" in the search bar. The photos are great!I have taken thousands of photos with mine out paddling my Clipper Sea 1. In fact we now use it for all our photos. My wife like it because it fits anywhere. I use the Joby Gorillapod to attach it to the end of a canoe paddle to shoot paddling video. http://www.rei.com/product/749128
I bought it because the zoom is 5x and I'm glad I did. I like to shoot photos of wildlife and it works great for that most times.
