We lost a GoPro Hero2 with wifi backpak to the river last week when a rope caught it while it was mounted via suction cup to the transom trying to get a closer shot of my 4yr old riding. We still have a regular Hero HD but I really feel like we are just wasting time trying to use it to film Wakeboarding.

I've started looking at regular video cameras for the first time in a long time and it really looks like there are a ton of options. First, we have Canon Rebel T2i but I really don't want a DSLR on the boat as I really want something small, simple and easy to mount. A lot of times it is just me, my wife and our 2 small boys so I need something that I can mount, hit record and go.

Does anyone have any suggestions for a video camera in the $300-$600 range? I'm partial to Sony and found several I'm that price range that seem like they would work well.

I'm not opposed to a regular digital camera that takes good video. It doesn't necessarily have to be waterproof but this Sony seems pretty cool:

This new waterproof camcorder from Sony also seems like it would be a great option too:

Any thoughts or suggestions?
