Ive heard people saying alot about the vibrations but ive never had the smae problem!? the standard mount that the camera already clips into when in the box is fine when you used the white insert. however i will admit the other curved mount is terrible, its so loose in the plates it wobbles everywhere & you cant fit the rubber insert in to stop it

Cheers for the advice on mounts and the 'rattle' on the mount ( and the insert to fix it ) .

I am rather paranoid about the thing going over the back - so am sure I'll follow the same path as you guys - a lanyard to start and then removed ....

I'd add I have seen 250s go pro hanig from the lanyard when it came out of the mount ( I think .....crew went to sort it out as I was driving) , but to be fair it is mounted in an 'exposed area - prone to movement - right at the bow and it was properly rough that day !)

I only use the leash with mine on the suction cup mount all the others i just rely on the mount. at first i was quite paranoid but now i always forget about the camera being there. This was filmed 100% with my hero2...

theres another video on my channel of me out in a easterly and being swamped by a massive 3 meter wave about half way through the video...and the camera held its ground & didnt budge an inch!

Sorry to drag this up ( again ) ....

HD Hero2 down to 248 on Amazon

http://www.amazon.co.uk/GoPro-Motors...generic&sr=1-8

I'm close to just getting it, but prices seem to be creeping down and can only feel they will continue to do so in the run to the end of the year.

So do I buy now or hold on - not going to get huge use towards the end of the year - but if possible if I can get one for 'Summer is almost over' trip & of course the Nacho run in Jan -it would keep me occupied on cold, dark , lonley evenings.

If you are not in a rush I'm sure that they will come down even further after Xmas
