Kodak's bid to be the best in compact YouTube camcorders is finally about to debut in the UK.

Called the Playsport and first introduced at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in January 2010, the camcorder is waterproof up to 3m and records video at full 1080p HD. It also captures 5Mp stills and has a 2in LCD screen to view your footage on the fly.

The device comes with 128MB of internal memory and supports up to 32GB removable SDHC cards.

Surrounded by rubber casing, Kodak claims it's rugged enough to survive heavy knocks and comes equipped with image stabilisation for bumpy terrain.

If you're looking to take a camera snorkelling with you, this may float your boat and if you have £130 to splash, you can sink to new depths with your YouTube uploads. ®
