That should be more than sufficient to make movies while sailing.

However if you plan on going underwater and taking videos and want crisp color at depth you will need to purchase the DIVE HOUSING or one of the larger camera packages that would include it anyway. The DIVE HOUSING I think is only $50.
I'm not a diver, but it seems to me the average recreational diver isn't going anywhere near 60 meters down! Why is a different case needed?
