GoPro Hero helmet cam is awesome!

So a few months ago i got a gopro helmet cam. This thing is awesome, i ride in Texas at every track imaginable and this thing is perfect for capturing the tracks to show buddies. Ill attach some of the videos ive taken so far, let me know what ya think.

This is also a discussion topic so if you have any questions regarding your camera or just wanna off your videos, lets see them!

Thanks, Yea you cant go wrong with the HD. it really wasnt that expensive either. Its really tiny and has a freakin wide lens. I watched it on my 55in Led tv and the quality is amazing. When people roost you, you could actually see the roost and it was clear.

When i get back home from Iraq in August, we are going to try to mount it on the side of the helmet and see how that works out.

My buddy Tim has one and he likes to suction cup it to the side or roof of his truck when he goes out wheeling. It gets some sick shots for sure.

Awesome vids!
I got a GoPro HD for my birthday last year
I use it for snowmobiling, skiing, mountain biking & on the motorcycle. Definitely happy with the versatility of the camera.
Nice thread!

I'd love to find one to use on my shotgun for our annual pheasant hunt this November in Kansas. The kind similar to the one Tom Knapp uses from Benelli. Any suggestions?

good idea, i'm probably gonna try this sometime this summer. i think they make little life jackets that go around the gopro's also that you can get off ebay for like 10 bucks and they are bright orange

Awesome videos guys, Really cool places, ive never kayaked before but it looks fun.

The shotgun idea may actually work. I may have to test when i get back from Iraq in August.

Also we had wanted to use it on the wakeboard but i was always scared about losing it. If i can find a little lifejacket or make one ill do that.
