Gopro...or it were...

Postby Wilbur Kookmeyer » Wed Apr 07, 2010 6:13 pm

Does anyone have any experience of info on these things?

I recently came into a Flip camera and have already ordered the requisite mounts for the scooter and other such things, however when searching for a surfboard mount I came across these things.

Seem kind of cool for a couple hundred bucks....

get an olympus 10 mp waterproof digital camera from costco for 200 bucks

its my only camera, takes decent pics, anywhere, shockproof etc...

they are generally too expensive everywhere but costco, they have some model of it that other places dont.

its way more functional but not mount-able like gopro (unless you jerry rig it yourself)

i had the original go pro when it came sucks in comparison but i'm sure the new one is somewhat better

been happy with my olympus digital waterproofs, this is the 2nd i have had, lost the first one out my back pocket in costa rica while on an atv.

Wilbs, you can borrow mine if you want to play with it. I've got the HD version with rechargable battery, fisheye. It's pretty sweet.
