Go Pro Hero (again!)

Those of you who use a Go Pro Hero HD on your RIB...have you found a way of attaching a lanyard to the camera? I bought mine from Dogcamsport and they suggested, as the camera doesn't float, that it should have a lanyard attached if using on a boat. However, they had no suggestions as to how to do this. Nor, can I see an easy way. Or even a hard way

So, any clever suggestions?

Can you either thread a lanyard in the gap under the catch on the housing or attach the lanyard between housing and base that is bolted together???

Hi...and thanks Just worked it out: there's sufficient gap in the split hinge of the waterproof case that allows a lanyard to be fitted without impacting the hinge. Perfect

I have only got the standard Go Pro not the HD. They are great bits of kit. I have just modified a worksite safety helmet to wear when Scuba diving so I can record the dive. It has lots of holes to allow air to escape and a bungee to keep it on my head. I am doing this to for the following reasons:

a. to look extremely stupid.

b. to record the dive so I can replay to identify bits I may have missed while diving.

c. so Mart from Channel ribs can have a better look at some metal he found.

I can do that (particularly with full bladder and wearing dry suit) but I must admit, diving in a worksite helmet is a great attempt

Hi!
I just bought it in USA last week. I found this website yesterday.

http://goprohacks.blogspot.com/

Very interesting. You will find some useful adaptations.

Even if it's in French, it's easy to understand. There's probably the same website in EN but I didn't find it yet.
