    I know its not QUALITY video, but its not bad... but you can pick up a Flip Video Recorder + housing for I think like $160.

    I have a Pentax Optio W60.Its 10 Megapixels.Its also got video and underwater video.Small camera but packs a good punch.I've used it in 49 degree water with no problems.It cost about $260.

    Ya, the Flip Video camera is going to be your only option for something that cheap. I dont think the video quality is too good, but the cameras are really small and should be very easy to shoot.

    If you want to do it right, you are going to spend $800 or so on a custom made water housing to fit a good HD camera ($400 - $800).

    if your camera small enough try putting it in two condoms, did that on my still camera and got some really good shots

    i have an olympus u720 (i think, i know its olympus)

    it's video isn't the best but it's pretty good. its 10 megapixels so it gets solid still pictures.

    it was a joke....kinda depending on what you want to do with the video i would wait to save up and see what you can afford.
