New, cheap WP cams...

I make grips for use in kite surfing and other water sports... Here are two new cams and an 'old' cam.. (18 months seems old these days.)

There are lots of cams that have optional housings, GoPro, FLIP ..earlier Contour models, but I like these because - they are typically still good - submerged to 3 meters .. light weight (white one is 3oz) and nearly idiot-proof.

The Contour is the new TOUR model that sells for about $200 .. the white is the new Kodak Playfull made to a $100 price point .. and the 'old', Kodak zx3 Playsport, which is a great cam. I have bought maybe six on Ebay - none over $75.

The limitation to these is 'pressure'. You cannot SCUBA .. you should not attach one to the leg of a competition waterskier .. you should not drop one from a kite 30 meters off the water - too much pressure on the seals bricks the cam. (I do not SCUBA .. but know the other issues well.)

Dumb Sh_t .. I mistakenly called the new Contour cam a 'Tour' when it is really the ROAM.
