Yeah, any feedback on this would be awesome, I'm thinking of the new Hero3 Black Edition for the trip to France. Thoughts anyone?

I use a gopro on my barrel, the bike handlebar mount works perfect for mounting to the barrel. also the rollbar mount for in cars works on my havoc.

here is my youtube channel if you want examples of how it looks undermounted, and what it kinda sounds like on a geo 2 https://www.youtube.com/user/MrObsid...f?feature=mhee

if you guys have any questions feel free to ask me, I do know that at 720p 60 frames per second a 16 gig memory card lasts around 2 hours, and so does the battery in my gopro hero 1

I use a hero.one, and just bought a contour roam..

Go pros get the best picture quality, and with the high frame rate you can see every little detail of paint leaving your barrel.

Go pros also allow you to take pics, and uses regular sd cards (hero one) they also have a removable battery so u can switch batteries and keep your camera in the game.

the head mount gets a good angle, but its a PITA to deal with a mask and the head mount.. If u can find a hero with all the mounts you will use head and handle bar and cases. snag it.. its really not as convenient as the hero 2 or 3, but it works great.
