what would yall recommend and WHY?
looking for 300-700$ price range and must be simple so the parents can use it without me being there.

THANKS!

Since you have the good stuff already, it might be fun pick up a Flip Ultra HD for about $200 and an underwater housing for another $50. You end up with a decent 720p video camera in a package that is easy to carry, and anyone can figure out how to use it...kids, grandparents, the neighbors.

to be clear, i dont OWN any. i use the others for the companies i work for, they get them after the program/game has been shot.

thanks for the advice. keep them coming!

I am of no use on suggesting a camera...I am leaving on the 26th for Costa as well. Maybe with a "layover" in Belize.

Sorry I am useless ;)
