I think I'm going for the HD Hero if the quality is similar, worth it for the saving.

An a frame mounted go-pro would do wonders for your eBay listings

Is that off the sales pitch or experience? My single battery when fully charged lasts around 35 mins in continuous video mode...5 hours would need a hell of an memory card too

Check the GoPro website or Dogcam websites...they won't match that price but they'll give you the full range of options. There are different camera kits with different mounting options. Check first to see what you actually need.

The go pro site quotes about 8gb/ hour for full 1080 recording.

I've got a HERO 2 now as well as the double battery pack...it's quite possible they've made some power saving changes in the HERO 2.

I'll soon find out...

Nathan...check the GoPro website.

There are three HERO cameras...the HERO 960, HERO Original and the HERO 2 Professional...the latter two both shoot in 1080 but there are lots of detail differences between the three which can be compared HERE. The HERO 2 shoots in more detail, has a higher pixel count, a better lens, greater low light capability and can shoot in wide, medium or narrow formats.

GoPro all the way. Superb mounted on our sea safari rib. Advice though....get the anti-mist strips and don't mount near engines as that's all you hear!
