"Drop it like its hot... No worries still works"

It's stylish it's durable and but its got 1080 p recording and is 5 megapixel resolution. It also fits in your pocket.
Now this is so easy to use that any beginner could use it to record or transfer recordings or pictures to a computer.
Now the fact it fits in your pocket/doesn't need a big carry case and it is stylish and quirky looking that I don't thinks going to look old very soon that any age this would suit.
Now what really sets this camcorder apart is the fact you can drop it and it will work you can drop it in up to 3 meters of water and it will work. I can't think of many camcorders that not just say it but gives you a manufactures warranty and will replace it if it breaks within those limits.
Anything under £100 is a good price and there are many trusted websites you can get this just type in on Google.

Product Information : Kodak Playsport

Manufacturer's product description

Heads up, adrenaline junkies. The Kodak Playsport has as much appetite for adventure as you do. And it's not afraid to get wet. This audacious little camera can plunge up to 10 feet under water and capture the entire experience in full 1080p HD. And you don't need to worry about blurry footage when things get a little shaky. With built-in image stabilization, the Kodak Playsport will stay steady as a rock. From the waves, to the slopes, to the mud-soaked trails, this baby was made for the extremes.
