Read the full Panasonic HM-TA20 review

The Panasonic HM-TA20 is a fairly ordinary pocket Internet camcorder – until you take into account its considerable water, shock and dust resistance. With double-locked doors on all its ports, they’re sure to stay shut when the going gets rough. Video performance is adequate, although the range of creative settings available is rather limited. So this isn’t the best general-purpose choice, but if you need the toughness it’s peerless.

I really don´t get these flip like things.
A year ago I got a Samsung WP10 for 150 Euro.
It is roughly the same size, water and dust proof, has a 5x optical zoom and a good working digital image stabilisation and makes good 12MP pictures and captures good detail in the 720p video.
I doubt that with that tiny sensor and lens there is even enough detail for a 720p container.
There was a reason Flip went down the drain, these things are obsolete.

This looks like the General Electric DV1, same specifications etc... Just, that GE is almost 1 year old. I have one and it's a great toy :) I use it mostly for quick snaps and movies at work and it's perfect for that.
