    My parents got me the 960. I haven't used it yet but I know telling the difference between 960 and 1080 is pretty damn hard. They got mine from Costco. It came with a ton of mounts and extra lenses

    960p: 1280x960 Ultra Wide and Tall HD featuring a 170º angle of view, 30 fps, and 4:3 aspect ratio. See more of the action above and below than widescreen16:9 resolutions can show.

    Not my taste IMO though

    1080 all the way. Not only do you get a higher resolution, you get 720p at 60fps - awesome for slow motion.

    The 960 setting is just 1080 cropped.

    I just called a surf shop here and they said that they only have the 1080 and it's $269. Is Costco cheaper?

    Costco had the 960 with a bunch of stuff for $179-$189 I think.

    Mine came with:
    (4) 3m hard mounts
    (1) Helmet mount adapter
    (1) none Waterproof back door for better sound
    (2) Replacement Lenses and o-rings
    (1) Screwdriver for lenses
    (1) Head Strap
    (1) quick release thingy

    Then the camera, Battery, and all the cables
