I just got one and haven't spent much time with it yet but the chest and head mounts work fairly well. Whatever you do, make sure you get the phone app for it. Works great. However, if you leave the wifi connected it drains your battery. Leaned this the hard way after I had 2 dead batteries and couldn't figure out why I had no juice when I got to the stream.


Ryan,

I got the phone app but my camera won't connect to the wifi...I keep getting authentication failure. Any ideas why?

gopro is cool but if you really want to get good film it not the way to go. if all you want is a five minute video of catching a fish or two its perfect but for real filming a dslr camera is the way to go. I think its great for underwater shots but not my cup of tea. I had a hero 2 when they were new and lost it which I didn't lose to much sleep over except the fact I spent 200 bucks on it.

ryguyfi thanks for mentioning the phone app...I just tried it out last night and I am liking it. A free app is a lot cheaper then buying that LCD screen and making my GoPro bulkier!


Rather than using your primary phone and risking damage, I would suggest one of these:

Waterproof, bomb proof. Has a camera. GPS (works without cell service). You can view video on it via the wi-fi connection using the aforementioned app. A waterproof GPS, camera, camcorder, MP3 player, oh and yeah technically I guess you could use it as a phone, for $15?

Absolutely 100% disagree on this. DSLR is the correct tool for photos however they fail pretty miserably at video.

I have a waterproof case for my phone so I am not worried about it getting wet. I already took a spill this year that would have destroyed my phone but luckily I had it in the case. So far I've caught a lot of fish but nothing photo worthy in my opinion. Might have to change that this weekend!

Jdaddy unless you are looking to spend a grand on a video camera with all the auto focus and other fancy gadgets a dsrl is a perfect camera that will take video and pictures. The video will definitely be better the go pro quality.

Speaking of editing software, what do you guys use to edit? My Canons all render video in quicktime and besides the lengthy conversion process which only works half the time anyway I've yet to find decent editing software. I'm not ready to splurge on a mac book just so I can edit videos. The only thing I've found so far is the youtube editing function which actually does work but it just splices footage together.

As far as the usefulness of video, for me I enjoy sitting back and watching old videos from some places where I might never get back to, that and reminiscing with some old buddies that have moved away or passed on, that's the value for me. And sharing on forums and feeling like a big shot , lol j/k
