If you're a resident of that big island on the other side of the planet, you'll be able to try out the Roamio disposable videocamera for yourself, as they're now reported to be available at online retailer Extrafilm Australia. The cameras will set you back $50AU, after which you'll be able to record 10 minutes of 'VHS quality' video with sound and take 24 '6 x 4 inch quality' pictures. Return it to Extrafilm for processing and you'll receive a DVD with your video and pictures shortly.

I question the viability of this model when you can purchase a low-quality digital camera for about twice the price of renting a Roamio, but the company hopes to market the device to those who don't want to risk losing their expensive cameras or may not have a computer to do post-processing of digital snaps on.
