Default Bros, this camera looks pretty bauce

I was toying with the idea of getting a GoPro but there are a few things I really don't like about that camera. This seems to do everything right at a comparable price.

What's wrong with the go pro, just for reference?

And I'm assuming you know about the LCD for the gopro?

the LCD connects to the back of the camera. And it still stores the videos to the SD card? What do you mean does it store the video on the LCD?

haha sounds safe! I think the intention of the LCD is to make it easier to change settings and so you can get instant playback/review of pics and videos.

With the hero2 out, you should be able to find deals like I did, a hero1 for $150 (not the $150 on gopro's site, the $240 one). With te LCD that's $230. Still cheaper than the one hustler linked, but there may be other reasons he doesn't like it.

...and I still have no way to attach it to the roll bar, still have to **** with AA batteries, and it will only hold a 2GB card.

what? You can buy a roll bar mount for $20-$30. The GoPro has a lithium battery that it uses which lasts just long enough for 2 hours at 1080p, and it will take a 32GB sd card.

So we have a $270 camera, $80 LCD, $30 roll bar mount, so we're basically up to $400 after shipping and I still have to deal with charging a battery.

Can you see where the camera is pointed with the LCD backpack or do you have to record and playback?

I wish I could just buy a damn Racekeeper.

Are there any decent camera mounts for an EVO3D? That's the best option for me, and no cost.

So this camera of yours is wired into the car? All but the original go pro come with rechargeable batteries and handle up to 32gb. That $150 gopro was NOT the original.
