I always wanted to get one of these cameras. How do you like it? I know Sam's or Costco used to sell a package deal but IDK if they do anymore. Where did you pic up yours? and How much??

Info much appreciated  :cool:

Thanks Makin Moves, I just checked there websit seems like they are going at the average price of $299. My question is which one you guys suggest or would be most suitable for filming fishing/spear fishing/mountain bike riding.

Those are the main uses I'd have for it.

Are there any major differences?

I got mine off craigslist for 175, its the surf hero, brand new..
I love it though i plan to use it spearfishing in the keys this july, if you get one i would spend the few extra bucks for the full HD and make sure you research the memory cardto use, it makes a big defferance..

is that the same one you have? will it work for what i want?>


Edit: I just called the guy and he said he just sold it. But he is in the gym business and has clients that are snowboarders who can get the GoPro at a little bit of a discounted price. He's sending me a price list so i'll be sure to share with you guys to decide if its worth it.

I was actually looking into one of those a few days ago. My concern is that the camera itself looked kind of cheapy but the photos actually don't look bad. Does it come standard with the wide angle lens? Also on their website I see it listed for 179.99 for the standard.

I bought the GoPro Hero 960 and got it in the mail on Monday. It was $179 and came with the housing, camera, head mount, and a few other helmet/adhesive mounts. From what I was told it is the same exact camera as the $300 cameras EXCEPT for the fact it does not shoot 1080p HD @60 fps. It does shoot 960p HD @30 fps. Basically no difference if you dont plan on showing videos on a screen over 50" or do super slow motion video editing. I am still playing with it, but below are a few of the almost 2000 images I shot with it this week. Most I converted to B&W, but the color images look great too. I'm a sucker for B&W. Enjoy.  ;D

The other diff between the two is the expansion port on the back of the camera..
