GoPro Hero HD (1080p and 170*) -need input
Any recommendations on this cam?

Found one that's been used twice for $170 (so the owner says).

It comes with all of the normal hardware and waterproof case and includes a rollbar mount. I would buy different mounts elsewhere...

Is this the camera you all would suggest for wakeboarding? decent price right?

I appreciate the help!

I've seen the older SD (std def) kits sell for that much, so a HD setup for that price is definitely a good deal! Are you able to get your hands on it or is this a deal you found online?

Which GoPro accessories were you thinking about getting?

i like the vholdr better but its a bit more expensive...

It's a deal I found online....
Thanks for the suggestions.

I would want a suction cup mount, helmet, and chest....

Can someone clarify something for me:

Is the HD Hero NAKED just mean it doesn't come with any mounts? Is the Surf or Motorsports or Helmet HD Hero the same camera as the Naked, just includes specific mounts?

Thanks in advance.

Yes, all the HD 1080 camera packages have the same camera, but a different set of mounts. I got the moto and it came with a suction cup and lots of sticky helmet mounts. I was thinking that I wanted to get the vented helmet strap mount, but now I'm thinking that will just add jiggle to the shot. I think it's better to use the sticky mounts. I've also ordered the handle bar/seat post mount so that I can easily mount it on a pole and take shots from a higher angle. I thought it would also come in handy to get a killer shot of a rattlesnake biting the camera the next time I find one in the yard! :)
