  Panasonic Lumix TS

I've had a TS-3 about 2 years and used it in Class II and Class III whitewater with great success for HD movies and stills. It has taken a beating on rocks and survided some pretty turbulent Class III flips and swims.

The advantage it has over the GoPro my buddies use it that I can be 20 feet away in the eddy and still get a full frame shot. If they aren't withing 5 to 15 feet with the GoPro, the wide angle really pushes the subject away. I've also watched a case break open on the Upper Nantahala, another camera lost on the Hiwassee, and a Lifecase get knocked off a mount in the last year. I tether mine to my PFD and hand hold to shoot -- or occasionally take a small tripod.
