    View the build. Too much to list.
    There are some better all-sports cameras out there but the go pro is decent. I use mine for freestyle skiing and it holds up fine.

    Stick on hood scoop from Autozone.
    I'm going to be selling mine, it's an HD model with a whole bunch of mounts and the waterproof and regular housing if you're interested. :)



    I love it, but I don't use it enough to justify keeping it. :(

    I use Moviemaker Live to edit my GP HD videos all the time.
    What version of windows & Moviemaker?
    I ended up having to buy a new laptop w/ win7, quad processor. My 5 yr laptop took forever to view & edit.
    As far as the GP, I use mine all the time as well especially on the trails, mountain biking, motorcycling, and snowmobiling.

    This is the information I needed! I have a lot of video from the Half Dome Hike about a month ago but haven't been able to post it because it's around 15 GB and I couldn't find any software to edit it.

    Thanks Judy!!!

    Takes great video driving. I've used the suction mount to mount to my dashboard and it came out great.

    Used the chest mount on a hike and the video is insanely good, give or take the part where I smeared sweat on the lens and forgot to clean it. It's small enough to not be in the way whether it's attached to something or being worn.

    You have to convert the files for it to work. A great program to use is MPEG Streamclip, free and really useful!

    GoPro is AWESOME, its on my to get list but a lot of my friends have them so when we go surfing , MTBing , diving, quading, hunting or what ever, they take it and we get to watch it latter in HD! then you get to edit it and put in your own music and effects then you can post it on Youtube if you like, good stuff and i highly recommend it

    Oh and they have mounts for ANY SURFACE!! = WIN
