    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

    I don't know about the 2, but I have a Hero 3 (Silver) and it has an iPhone remote control app. It's "OK", but you can use your phone to setup a shot. Mine lives on the head strap, so I don't use the app much. I edit video on a Mac Book I snagged of eBay.

    For what its worth. The new Hero 3 has been changed slightly so that it now stays in focus underwater, a feature that is quite desired for fishing. The previous models required a aftermarket flat lens cover to keep the underwater shots clear. I like mine except for the fact I need to update my pc to be able to fully edit video.

    Curious what you guys are using for editing/processing? I feel like my vids always come out lower quality than what I see posted online, even if I import them on high rez. I'm using an early GoPro HD so maybe that's the reason??
