[QUOTE=ollyit;433755]forget the go pro's unless your spending silly money -
I have a kodak playsport zx3, coupled with category10 16gb SD Card = fully waterproof - I've used it windsurfing, wakeboarding, ribbing you name, its simply brilliant, it outdoes the go pro I think as its does 60fps (go pro does30) in HD 720p and 1080p resolution, and it doesnt have a standard fish eye lense, its drop proof, I give my stuff a hard time, and it takes the grief and captures the audio better with the mic, has face recognition, image stabilisation, you can even down volume the mic input elimating annoying wind noise - look at some of my videos, the quality speaks for itself, just make sure you view the youtube videos in HD 720p mode (as per image at bottom)
Also plugs in to TV via hdmi and has a view finder unlike the go pro and has a thread underneath for mounts etc [QUOTE]
Thanks for the tip, but it is just too late. Yesterday evening I ordered a Go Pro HD Hero 2. Lots of factors came into the decision, but pressure proof to 60m is one of them. Just need to get the lights now
Thanks to all for your guidance - much appreciated.
