They don't like water much - both of mine have had a dose of (fresh) water but dried out ok. They are so cheap that it doesn't matter much (see below)

Easy waterproofing trick from a local sailor is to wrap the camera in kitchen cling film after fastening it to the bracket / mount. Arrange the film so there is only a single layer over lens / microphone and it works fine and is plenty waterproof enough.

Keychain camera with 2Gb card will take about 30 minutes of video. Seen better quality on others but these are cheap as chips. There are quite a few variants that all look the same, some need different software to change the date stamp etc.

I sourced mine from HobbyKing
Camera US$7.69:
Card 2Gigabytes US$5.59:
