Great vids guys!  If I followed the thread correctly you use the Flip Ultra with a waterproof housing.  Have you checked out the Sanyo waterproof camcorder?  I think Costco has them, not sure of the price.  I used to use a Fuji Finepix point and shoot in a waterproof housing, but I switched to an Olympus 1050SW after too many of my shots from were ruined because the housing fogged up if I shot a lot of pics.  Do you have any trouble with fogging up with your housing?
I want to get the Sanyo WPC pictured below but it's a toss up between that or upgrading from out current flip to the flip Ultra HD.  I was holding out on the Flip HD because they hadn't made a water housing for it yet but over the summer I kept calling and email them.  Initially they stated that there were no plans to come out with a housing for that but a few months later I got an email back and I went to their website where they finally came out with a housing.
As far as condensation is concerned, it's never happened but the trick is not to expose it any sudden temp changes (so don't put it in you fish bag and then pull it out when you want to use it)  The regular Flip Ultras have been good to us.  Although, mine doesn't record sound anymore.  I'm probably to blame for the malfunction because I don't particularly treat the camera very well.  It's constantly getting knocked around the foot well, or dropped on the kayak.  There were a couple of times also when I didn't take it out of the housing after a day's worth of fishing and there may have been a little moisture in there.  Overall, I'm pretty satisfied with the abuse it took.  For the price, and for YouTube delivery, you can't beat it unless of course you step up to the Flip Ultra HD version.
We have that Sanyo WPC...but we don't have any video from it because I keep forgetting one thing or another. :-\ One day...one day...

I put those moisture absorbing packs that you find in some food or medicine containers in the housing. That stopped the condensation problems when I took the camera out surfing, sometimes for 4 hours. Just be sure that the packs are not going to keep the o ring from creating a tight seal when you close the housing.

I always meant to try that, but I'd always forget to put one of those packs in.  Glad to hear that it works.  In any case, a waterproof point and shoot is still the way to go for kayaking or surfing since they're small enough to carry in a pocket and you don't need the depth capability of an separate housing.

Yeah, I don't use that camera much nowdays. I use a Fuji Z33WP now. It fits easily in my surf shorts pocket or PFD pocket. No need to surf with a fanny pack anymore.

That's a good Idea. I'm gonna tell my partner about this. He uses a housing liike this too.

You probably need more than one, depending on the size of the pack. I usually had six little packs in there and it worked great for me.

Which shark shield is that? The surf version? And do you guys leave it on and in the water the whole time while trolling or drop it in the water only when you get a hook up? Thanks guys. Might invest in one of these soon :)

Went fishing last Saturday.  Came home with an Uku and good sized Weke ula and took MONSTER strikes all day (but rubber hooked em).  Was a lot of fun being in the kayak after a long break.  We even got visited by this pod of whales.
