Wow — I’ve been waiting for Canon to make this for 8 years now. Waterproof and shoots 720p video. I want to see this in person: it might be a bit bulky, I want to see the USB/Battery closures/how they work, what the settings are for Manual vs. Auto photos, etc.
“Besides being shock, water (up to 33 feet) and freeze-proof (down to 14 degrees F), it’s got a 12 megapixel sensor (like most of Canon’s new line) and will shoot VGA video (unlike the most of the line, which shoots 720p video). Despite being tough, it actually feels pretty nice in your hand, though it won’t fit in your pocket (unless you’ve got old school JNCOs). If you’re not a fan of the blue, it’ll have other plates, like orange and camo. I want to love it, so I hope it shoots nice pictures. It’ll be $330 when it comes out in May.”
This might have usurped my desire for a Flip Mino HD camera. And.. it looks like the original iMac !!
