The Kodak Playsport model might be better for the top end, it can handle getting submerged/wet.
Virtually identical specs too, the only difference seems to be no macro mode.

The biggest downer on small cameras is the shortness of the optical zoom

Many are only 3 x, some are up to 10x

Digital zoom is useless if you want to blow the images up very much.

The zoom I have on the Nikon goes from 18mm to 270mm

or in 35mm format 28-390mm.

A very worthwhile lens but 5 times the price of the camera you are looking at.

Horses for courses I guess but some of the pocket size ones are pretty good these days.
