Just bought a GoPro Hero 2 - this weekend's nacho run should have been it's test run - but 2 important lessons have been learnt....
1. - after you've charged it for the 1st time and fiddled about with the settings - don't forget to turn it off again. Otherwise you fit it to the A-frame , turn it on... and get 3 second's filming before it goes flat! Alternatively change it's default power mode to power down after x minutes!
2. Take a 12V to USB charging lead with you so when you've been stumped by (1) above, you can at least charge it up and have another go!

Next time......

I would like the GoPro but was given this Dogcam Bullet HD Wide. Good enough for now but focus at a distance is a bit iffy could be better with more light It may be passed in to my sons for skiing so I can get something a bit more sophisticated to play with. Ah toys, don't you love them.

John,

Yes this is the replacement. Better but still not great! However speeding it up to x16 didn't help but the full length one was very boring, no matter how I edited it!
