I'm really looking for a good video camera that can handle the outdoors. Waterproof is a must. Also, optical zoom is a must. And, it must be able to fit into a coat pocket. I don't want to lug around a big camera. I'm hiking, so weight is an issue too.

The one camera that has caught my attention is the Nikon AW100. Has some nice features, but hasn't gotten the best reviews. However, most of that was geared towards interface or for the pictures, not video. I wouldn't mind a point n shoot with video capabilities, but I would use the video function more than the picture stuff. I use a DSLR for my pictures.

Anyway, just weighing my options here. Anybody know of any video cameras that would be good to fit here?

I wouldn't like anything more expensive than the AW100. That is as high as I'll go. I'm not even sure if the AW100 is worth its price tag.

Oh, and just wanted to add that I'd really like a camera with fast start up time. I have some piece of junk, overpriced Picsio waterproof camera that is a royal pain in the ass. Takes forever to turn on and the touch screen interface doesn't work well. It only has digital zoom, which I thought I'd be okay with, but I hate it. Definitely need optical.

I'm just kind of tired of looking around at all the specs and getting it all mixed up on all the cameras. The stores here don't have any cameras like what I'm looking for to test out, so I'm really in need of some extra guidance here!

An wind turbine in the canon S95 is the best option if seeking an affordable digicam offering with amazing performance and impressive features. This 10 mega-pixel digicam with Digic 4 running functions lets the user take perfect still injections and shoot 720p hd video of worn out quality.
