Panasonic SDR-SW20

Was thumbing through a catalog I got today and ran across the Panasonic SDR-SW20. It's camera that records on SD memory cards and is shockproof, dustproof and waterproof up to five feet.

No mention as to whether or not it shoots in HD, so I can only assume it shoots in standard definition. But with an MSRP of $399, I doubt it's HD.

Here's Panasonic's information page on it:

(If this is a repeat post, I apologize...I did a search but couldn't find anything)

For 720p, youíll have to get Panasonicís new TZ5. Unlike last years SD only model, this one allows you to use the 10X zoom when youíre shooting video and it retails for only $350 although it isnít waterproof like the SDR-SW20.
