I have three-water proof compact cameras. I would suggest looking at something in $200-300 range unless your are looking for high quality macro shots. Gopros work great; but, I hate the fish-eye lens and I am about to order a flat one. The biggest issue with the compact cameras is the small lens. It does not allow as much light in and you need very clear days to shoot good footage.
