    A good pocket camcorder coming out soon that may be good for detecting

    So the Consumer Electronics Show starts tomorrow and I've been looking at the new camcorders that companies are coming out with. Theres a few good ones, but one that really caught my eye was the Kodak Playfull Dual pocket camcorder. Its listed on their website and its coming out in either february or april. I like it because you can use it like a video camera and a camera. It takes 12 mp pictures which is pretty awesome and has a external microphone which is rarely seen in these kinds of camcorders. Im not sure about its mounting capabilities but im sure it could work somehow. Another awesome thing is that its listed for $199 which helps a lotttt. Just thought I would throw this out there. Here is a link to the website with its info.

    At first I thought it was like my Kodak Playsport but the Dual is not weather proof nor water proof like mine.

    Yea it prolly won't be the best at the beach, but as long as someone's careful with it, I think it would be great. Play sports only have 5mp pics...the dual will have 12

    For a little more money I like the HD Hero 960? It has more accessories, like a chest mount and is waterproof and easy to use. Pix or Video.

    I think if you want to make just detecting videos then mountable camcorders are nice...I saw a website where you can buy a mount for pocket camcorders to. Im just saying that if you wanna take videos, make them easy to share, and then use a decent camera to take pictures of all your finds, this is all in one.

    Kodak just sold off it'd division that makes the image sensors. This might put a kink in producing this. Frank

    There have been many reports that most digital cameras and video cameras are just about obsolete because of the telephone capabilities. So you may be saying bye-bye to many more company's.

    Just like all of these collectors buying the old SLR cameras, try and find film.. Even professional film is rare. I can't see buying something just to have without being able to enjoy it.. Electronics have taken all the fun out of photography.

    The big SLR are going. Small cameras like the Sony Alpha NEX5n will take over on the pro end. Cameras and camcorders have already merged. Some movies have been shot with these crossovers. The big problem with photography is that good pictures were worth money, but now every Tom, Dick, Harry & Mary are giving them away. The media use to pay $100 and up for a photo. Now the dummies are "sharing" them for free. Look at the Wheather Channel. They use to buy good shots. Now they are asking viewers to "share" them.i.e. give them away for free. Yes the camera explosion has killed the business of photography. I use to shoot weddings for $700 a pop, now their "friend" does them for free and it looks like it too. Frank

    I love my PlaySport so much I purchased a second one, and stashed it in the closet for future use.

    I have dropped this thing down concrete stairs from the 2nd floor, and watched it bounce out into the parking lot all while recording in perfect HD.

    Even completely submerged it in water a time or two with no problems.

    After further research I have my eyes set on the playsport as well. I need the shockproof, waterproof, and dust proof features

    A bit late for Kodak, but maybe some other company will pick up on it.
