I have been having good luck with the Flip Ultra HD with the waterproof housing. You can be up and running with 720p for around $200. Check out my latest little video creation shot with the Flip:

I'm no pro editor or filmer, just having some fun, but this will at least give you an idea.

I have a regular flip, works real well and is super simple to use. Nice for a general use camera. If you plan on mounting a camera on a board, helmet, or on the boat for surfing, I would go with the Vholdr. The go pro is cheaper but the Vholdr is better. both hav HD options

You want top of the line? Try this: http://www.red.com/cameras/
Or there's the standard that everybody seems to use: http://www.panasonic.com/business/pr...x200/index.asp

Nick, with the Playsport, can you do screen shots or pull out frames like you can the flip?

Sorry for the highjack.
