Default Pentax Optio W10 as a kayak video cam on Colorado River

During my trip to Glenwood Canyon a month ago I spent a couple of hours
on the Colorado River playing with my Pentax Optio W10 in a video mode.
I tried the camera mounted in different ways on a kayak deck with a
suction cup (sticky pod) and as a helmet cam. I didn't add any music.
All sounds including underwater were recorded directly by the camera.

Here is a 3 minute movie assembled from those clips:

Please note that I am migating my "paddling and photography" blog to a
new server and domain name - "paddling with a camera":
http://photokayaker.fit2paddle.com

Optio W10 is main camera for paddling and other outdoor activities.

I picked up a W10 this summer, passing my original Optio WP to one of my
daughters. The video quality is much better than the first camera's was.

It's a nifty little camera that goes with us paddling, and just about
everywhere else that I don't haul my digital SLR and lenses along.

And thanks for showing details of your mounts; I like the suction cup
mount. My efforts with various sorts of c-clamps have returned variable
results.

I've been mulling the possibility of adding a W10 to the big gear bag,
to be able to avoid having to pass my current single camera back and
forth from boat to boat. The only thing I don't like about little
cameras is the lack of zoom. My interest in paddling photography has
mainly to do with trying to capture the wildlife we see from the
water, and a 3X zoom leaves a lot to be desired. Even the 10X zoom in
the Canon S1IS in the lovely acrylic waterproof case that I've been
using very often doesn't get me as close as I wish or need. The new
S3IS has a 12X zoom, but for some reason Canon isn't making waterproof
cases for the S2 and S3, so I can't even be tempted to upgrade. In
any event, for my needs, a 3X zoom would be acceptable in a second
camera.

For what it's worth, all the pix on my kayaking pages (which I've been
working on lately) from 2004 on, have been taken with the S1IS.
