    I've used GoPro's a bit, but ended up buying a ContourGPS for my own use. I like the rotating lens as well as their app that lets you use your phone as a viewfinder to frame your shot. With GoPro, you have to buy the LCD BacPac for an additional $80 to see what your camera is seeing.

    Thanks alpinetrout, I don't use a cell phone. I will be getting the LCD BacPak to go with it.

    Got the LCD backpack for xmas today and already like it alot. Much nicer to see what's happening. That said, I couldn't see enough detail to tell that it looked like there was a naked woman on whatever was on T.V. in the background. My dog ruby was also not impressed while she guarded the tree.

    Just curious how you charged it over 5 days?


    I have the GoPro HD2 and it's a sweet little rig. Here's a few still shots and a couple videos from it. I'm far from mastering using it and the editing videos. The stuff below I was playing around with the different camera settings so a few of the videos have 4:3 and 16:9 aspect ratios combined. The stills are a little washed out due to a really cloudy days and I shot the pic against the sky.

    Great stuff here guys! Keep 'em coming.

    As Fate would have it, Santa decided I should have the new GoPro HD2.:thumb:
    Of course Santa didn't know I just bought the regular GoPro!:beathead:
    Looks like I'll have one for sale! Haven't used either one yet.

    I had two back up batteries with me but only needed to use two batteries for the 5 day trip. I did not take any video as I used the picture every two second function plus only used the camera when going through rapids The camera was only on for approximately 1/2 to 1 hour each day.

    I have the Contour HD mounted to my cap. Best thing I ever did. Awesome video and sound, tracks fish under water with the polarized lens, light, and can mount at any angle with the adjustments. Downloads real easy, like I said..It's great to have when you want to re-live those catches and see what you missed, or did right. High quality picture and sound.

    Mark, next time you are rowing, one on your head, one on the craft pointing back at you. I bet both angles will be fun to watch!

    I think one on my head and one one pointing at Jeff may prove more entertaining.

    I got one a couple of weeks ago. I am intending to use it when guiding. I think it will overcome many of the missed photo/vid ops when a client has a fish on, the anchor rope has a knot in it and no one in the boat can find their camera. I have been testing it with my lab pup in fast action situations and so far - so good! Unless I can grow a third hand, this seems like an answer.

    I shoot all my river snorkeling videos with a gopro. If you are thinking about buying one consider two things:
    Get the Hero 2. Way better image quality.
    Get the new underwater dive housing that counteracts the fish eye, turning the camera into a kick butt underwater HD rig.
    Here's an example of my underwater shots:

    I just recently got the GoPro HD2 and I and still very much learning trial and error. I have been editing mine off my iPad using several editing apps primarily iMove and SloPro.

    Here is my most recent effort:

    Nice video and nice spread. I don't have a iPad though haha You were so close to getting some awsome under water footage of your lab chasing that wigeon under water! Also do you know if the Gopro 2 works with the remote they have for the cameras now??
    thanks
