4 or 8gb would probably do, I don't think the batteries last long enough to fill a bigger card. Write speed is something to look for, I'm surprised Leapy's 23mbps works actually, my sony bullet cam needed 90mbps to work.

Edit: I've got 23mbps in my go pro as well, works fine so there ya go

+1 for the moisture pad thingys as well, lost a few hours footage myself from a steamy lens

Repost I think but here's a couple of clips taken on a go pro HD with head strap. As kindly pointed out by others on here recently, you do look a tool wearing it but captures go footage IMV.

Just checked and it has 24mb/s so should be ok if yours works.

Just about to order moisture thingys if they are recommended and will also get a floaty back door thingy bob just in case.

Think i'll wait and get the wifi bac pac too rather than the lcd screen as the way i understand it you can only use one or the other and the wifi bac pac comes with remote control and wifi to your phone so you can see the angle your recoring at for setting the shots up, (i think)...

EDIT - Just about to buy the floaty door but it states it will not support the weight of the suction mount too. Now i plan to use the go pro with the suction mount to get the family waterskiiing and have it on the front of the ski. Can anyone think of a way to secure the go pro to the waterski. My concern is the suction mount gives way and its bye bye camera

No way would I use the suction cup on anything other than glass and where if it fell off there wouldn't be a total loss. Use the self adhesive pads and the floaty thing and/or a lanyard if you need a confidence boost...the self adhesive pads are 3M: I used them all last season, Cookie uses them on his 70mph+ jobby...lots of the videos you can see on the Go Pro website use them...

Argh, perfect. I see they come with a few pads. Wasnt sure if they were up to the job, but if you have used them then great. I think a lanyard may be used for a little while. Confidence boost as you say.

I used a lanyard at first but have ditched it now...if you use one, make sure it's tight...if it flaps around and bangs on the camera case, the microphone will pick it up

I use a fine line tied tightly to the anchor light post. I cannot trust the sticky pads on their own just yet It still causes noise on the recording, however, I don't care, as I intend boaty videos to be set to music, at least for now

I shall use the sticky pads but will, for the time being use some form of line / lanyard to secure it just for my own benefit until I've used it a few times.

Can't wait for it to arrive now. How sad is that.

Like others i too will use windows movie maker to start me off, but i like leapys videos and the editing he has done. What software was that with out of i interest.
