One of the most inexpensive waterproof ruggedized sports cameras on the market has to be coming from Swann Security. Their SportsCam Waterproof Mini Video Camera (DVR-460) is just $99 and comes with a whole rig of accessories for mounting, strapping, even waterproofing. The built-in lithium-ion battery will give you 2.5 hours of recording time, a micro SD expansion card of up to 16GB is supported for 5 hours of video. The waterproof case is good to 65′ feet, which is not too shabby, the downside; your videos are only 640×480, and memory is not included, still good if you’re just shooting for web. Swann will unveil the DVR-460 at CES this week in Las Vegas.[Swann]
