Looks like it, think that I would like to know what mounts are included with this version - do not know myself.
The sellers rating is not brilliant.

Go Pro 2 - 1st attempt

I bought the HD Pro 2 Motorsport version and here is a short vid of my first attempt. I'm was really impressed with the "stability" of using the sunction cup mount. But it appears that the anti mist strips are a must. I have ordered a 2nd unit with the extended battery pack. I also ordered the roll bar mount and some other bits.

I was amazed at the sound quality bearing in mind the video was shot using the waterproof housing. I got the float back as well - the unit wont float on it's own

Rib run

It's the same camera, the difference is, you get the suction cup mount with the motorsport version & the headstrap with the outdoor one. I've ordered the msport & added the headstrap as an extra (17) 7dayshop have 32gig class 10 sd cards for about 18 quid, got a pair of those coming as well. Boys & their toys

Good price for the SD cards - not jealous
If you have problems when you first switch on, as I did, with the camera not recognising the SD card, do a re-format SD card, and all should be well.

Did anyone bother getting the lcd screen add on, or is it quite easy to get the right angle when mounting it.

Yes I have gone for the LCD screen, I always am a bit of a belt and braces type
To date I have certainly found it useful, even using it as a hand held, although you do need to be very steady to get a decent result.
It does have a neat feature, that allows the screen to be on for 60 seconds whilst you line the shot up, and then the LCD screen switches off to maximise battery life. However, I have yet to run out of juice, either with or without the screen running.

Cheers Ian. i was thinking the last thing i wanted is to spend a day shooting videos only to find a nice shot of the feet.......

I see a wifi backpack is coming out in march. About 125 quid which allows remote recording too.

Thankfully my birthday is coming up as the price soon rises with all the add ons, but as you say. Worth it.

Yes, loved the sound of water on hull, makes me want to drag mine out, if only I didn't have this damned cough Your crew seemed to be enjoying it too.
