copy + paste x 1 = appreciated.


copy + paste x 13 = too much time on your hands.

Anyone else use this camera? Does the video quality and sound really look like the demo video's that Go Pro has?

is that the "hero cam"? if so it works great my friend bought it and we tested it on his bumper and inside the car. outside you don't really hear wind and inside only pics up loud noises (spool, BOV, exhaust, etc...) but you don't really hear any talking if there are 2 people. I say go for it, but amazon has it for 160 shipped so save the 40$

Different model. This is the "revised," wide angle version.

I've never been to their website, I use my hands rather than my wallet to get things done on my car.... at least, up to this point.

Wide angle is "new" - yes. But Go Pro has always been a good deal for what it is. I have two and love not having anything but battery and SD card to worry about. Quality isn't bad. For those wanting super vid qualities, get a better camera. You do get what you pay for, which is why I love mine so much.
And for the monies, I don't mind zip tying the thing ANYWHERE!

Machismo, the older 3mp non wide angle cameras can be found for $80ish used, whats your opinion of the older one? Would it be worth the extra $100 for the 5mp, wide lens, and accesory extras? Or do you find yourself wanting that extra 2mp.
