Should get hold of some kit from Veho soon - their MUVI cameras use the same mounts as GoPro and they're cheaper with an LCD built in and a remote - they do all of the same resolutions as the competition as well ...........

Here's a link to their Website

Right! I've got me a GoPro, new laptop's on its way, all I need now is some decent video editing software. I'm new to all this so any suggestions/advice will be gratefully received. Please be gentle as I'm a complete beginner to this. I'll be using a windows7 machine, the wife has a Macbook pro but I hate it, so no point in suggesting Mac software. I know it's supposed to be easier on a mac, but I just can't get on with 'em.

I found iMovie for the mac easier to use than windows movie maker. IMO video editing can get a bit complicated so buying fancy software with loads of features might be a bad idea. I'd suggest having a go with both of the above which you should already have and seeing how you get on before shelling out on more advanced software.

I was in the same position as you, when I first used my GoPro.
I use Windows Live Movie Maker on an i3 laptop. It is quite simple to use; without having used it before I managed to get a usable video on to YouTube in one evening. Having said that it is a quite time consuming going backwards and forwards through the video to get the bits that you want, but all it takes is a bit of patience

pinacle studio hd is really good but takes time to learn all the fancy features. easy to use without bothering with all the features if you want to start slow

Been watching this thread with interest.....wanted a camera to mount on the Pac a frame, and GoPro HD has won..... Used a friends recently (hes a paraglider too and they all seem to use them in their club....he also has a paramotor and am hoping he'll do some arial stuff of the boats.....when it warms up a bit!)

Anyhoo, used the camera on one of our monthly water sampling runs (not terribly exciting footage, sorry) and then played around with Windows Live Movie maker.... I'm not much cop with this sort of thing, but here are the fruits of my efforts.....

Don't know what it's called, but would like to be able to slow down and speed up foootage at various points....might be beyond the software, but if anyone knows different?

Cheers fellas, Windows Movie maker looks like a good starting point, learning to walk before I can run & all that. Plus it's free which is always a bonus. Once I get the hang of it, I'll start looking at more ambitious software.
