New Cam

Hi all
I bought a Gopro Hero Wide Camera to muck about with.
It comes with loads of different mounts (helmet,sticky , suction cup and a few others) so I peeled back the sticky tape and mounted it on the A Frame. I also tethered it to the ski eye just in case. Its very easy to use, just turn it on and press the shutter. It records 56 mins on a 2gb Sd card.
I am very impressed with this little thing, the video quality is pretty good.
Here is some footage taken yesterday.



Tony

Hi Ian
I bought the helmet hero cam wide. I think all the new wide cams are the same inside, just with different accessories. I chose this one because of the wide range of mounting options.
