Cameras

Thinking of mounting an A Frame placed cideo camera on the boat. Currently use a hand held Flip but thinking on using a perm mounted one in addition to this.
What do others use bearing in mind the robustness of any available mounts and prefererably with a remote on off function allied to reasonable quality and storage capacity?

Careful, Humber may blame the excess weight of the camera, should anything happen to the transom!

I have this and it is as stated a great bit of kit with a remote worn on your wrist. I also use the GO pro with stills every few seconds or as a video
I always suffer with download technoligy failures. What software should I be using?

You'll get whacked around the head with a surplus (and incredibly heavy) lighting pole in a minute

Hope it's not too sore a point to joke about. Such a shame what's happened, I'd be livid. Hope you get use this season without further problems.

They have a good rep normally on here, though I've no experience with them. Barrus were good mind!

This is a good website, Ive got a Drift X170 with a mounting kit, very happy with it, I mount it on the grab rail of the console or the A frame.
