I recently got my self one of these small digital video cameras.
They are made by a American company called GoPro and this is the HD model. I picked it up for £270 from this small online shop. The camera shoots in various modes including 720p @ 60 Fps(for some nice slow mo action), 960p @ 30Fps and 1080p @ 30Fps. It also has a Time lapse feature that takes photos in intervals of 2,5,10,30 and 60seconds. It takes a SD card up to 32Gb and can record for about 2.5 hours on a single charge.
