The reviewers also have hacked the firmware of the MD80 and the older 808 camera to remove the time stamp. I removed the dates from mine and it does work.

As for a LCD, I don't use one. I operate my camera remotely. I tow it behind a boat, so an LCD is pointless for my use. Plus, if I lose it I am only out $11.

I just noticed that the camera you linked to says "Water Resistant to 3 meters", which makes me concerned that it is a very poor underwater camera that would be useful only in a shallow swimming pool. I have had my homemade camera as deep as 300 feet by pressurizing the bottle with a bicycle pump to 130PSI before submerging.

I think we have different goals. I was just suggesting an alternative.
Do you happen to have the link/hack where the annoying time stamp can be removed. Thanks
