GoPro is the sportster's default.
--the basic features that you'll use are all there
--just like Miata, they're everywhere and people in the pits will generally have spare parts for the GoPro, knowledge how it best works, etceteras
note: The Hero Black also includes a Bluetooth module that GoPro hasn't even turned on yet--this is supposed to be a secret, but it's all over the forums by guys who have cracked theirs opened to see the guts.
--Not that user-friendly, unless you buy all the remote control gizmos
--battery and memory don't always match usage
--videos taken in moving vehicles can sometimes have a waving, nauseating quality to them
--the suction cups can sometimes suck, but not in a good way. It pays to add a safety lanyard to all GoPros...at least the ones you care about.
While the GoPro is the recognized leader in action video, I predict that dash-mounted cell phones will top them in market share usage within two years. So if you have an old Apple or Motorola sitting around, consider strapping that to your dash as well...what can you lose?
