So, anyone who has one, what would you recommend to get as a "starter kit" set-up. I would need it to be waterproof, have decent memory and quality, and mostly be easy and fun to use. Does this mean the Hero 3? The Wi-fi thing seems pretty cool. Budget is $500 to $600.... Let me know what you guys think. Thanks!
GoPro HD Hero 2
2 Rechareable Li-Ion Battery
1 LCD BacPac (comes with multiple housings to fit)
1 Suction Cup Mount
1 Floaty backdoor
32gb/16gb Sandisk SDHC Memory Card
I have much more accessories for my GoPro than what I listed above, but I never ended up using them. I.E. Chesty mount, Skeleton Housing (only use for time lapse), head strap, etc.
Forum classifieds and Craigslist would be the first place I would search. Deals are to be had as people off load the HD Hero 2 for the newer model. I am well pleased with my HD Hero 2 and do not feel the need to bump up the 3. Best of luck on your search.
