Looks like price matching because when I first posted this my check said this was a better price than from other reputable sources.

It reached $139 last week and has been hovering at the sub-$160 level since before Christmas. I'm, I admit, very tempted.

very tempting but 1080p@30fps is lagging behind compare to other video products offering 60fps or higher

It looks like the price has been dropped by about 50% over the launch price. I wonder why...

Tempting indeed. I recently lost my son's GoPro Hero 2 so I need to get something to replace it. He likes the look of these but I haven't seen much in the way of good sample videos which is too bad. A few of those going viral might really do a lot for the product. Assuming good video is achievable, of course.

It looks like Buydig has several kits (with 64GB SDHC card, tripod, case, etc.) for only a few dollars more:

My son lost my WG-III. I'm wondering if this might be a good cheaper alternative?

This is an action video camera, so if you were looking for something to shoot stills, I wouldn't recommend it. A traditional waterproof compact would be better; you might even want to check out other brands since Pentax hasn't refreshed the WG-3 in almost two years now.

Well, Ricoh did slap their name on the WG-3 and call it the WG-4...
