    Based on recommendations, I purchased the motorsports one. It has a bunch of attachments that click onto 3m adhesive backed plastic disks. Also comes with a big ole suction cup mount. Just my experience, make sure ur computer can handle a good editing software if ur filming in 1080 because mine can't.  :) Also, consider getting the flat cased underwater housing for underwater stuff cuz the case the unit comes with does not give crystal clear underwater vid. My 0.02.

    Hey Will,

    I have the motorsports one too. I usually just use the suction cup mount on the console (if I am not using my iphone).

    awesome, I just saw a mount that went into a pole holder on the platform, I think the remote would be pretty cool to have too

    I got the outdoors package.
    For I use it to ride mountain bike, too.
    It brought a helmet strap, head strap, and several stick on mounts.
    I stuck one of the mounts atop my poling platform and it has an awesome view. You can watch my videos and see how we do it.

    Usually, there's one on the person on the bow's head via headstrap, and the poling platform mount.

    Also have tried the suction cup mount on the gunnel to get the view from upfront facing back.

    Not trying to jack the thread - which of the GoPros makes the most sense to buy? I'm looking to buy one for some specialty shots for a couple of documentaries I'm working on...thanks!

    If you're doing something that needs high quality, I'd go with the gopro HD (I think thats the newest one). I'm still debating on this myself although mine will just be for regular pics and vid. I don't have one but have been researching them some.. Someone that actually has experience with these can probably chime in

    BTW Beavis, where was that taken???

    Definitely get the hd hero 2. It's worlds better than the others.


    Get a class 10 sd card of at least 32 gigs. Buy an extra battery.

    And color correction makes the footage look a whole lot better.
