Re: GoPro - What do you think?

I have one. Stunning quality above and below the water line. I use mine on the boat, motorcycle and airplane. Works fantastic on all.

No screen, not user friendly. Comes with nice case, many mounts...great camera.. Its a fish eye so it distorts buildings but not too bad. Its like 140 degrees of view.

Re: GoPro - What do you think?

I love my GoPros so much so I have 3. I use them for work, (I work in the TV News Business), I use them for pleasure. I cannot say enough about these tough little beauties. I have mounted them on Boats, cars, bikes, skis, Surfboards, RC Helicopters, real Helicopters, had them under water, over water, over lava and the list goes on. For the price you just can't beat 'em.
I am wanting to mount one on a kite so I can get a nice arial wide shot of my 27 Catalina under full sail.

On the boat I have had them mounted on a Halyard just for photos not video, on the pulpit, on the pushpit, on a boom, on the dodger frame and on a boat hook. I have wifi back packs for them so I can roll the cameras remotely.
Regardless of which POV camera you choose, remember keep that camera safely rolling.

You might say that I'm "head over heels" for my GoPro!
