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.
