I have a GoPro Hero and used it a lot with MAC iMovie. Very quick and easy to use. There are good tips on youtube but you can just give it a go with good results.

Cheers! I'd missed that and just found it - following your comment - in the instruction book. I'd previously dismissed it as the Rainx website says do not use on curved plastic surfaces as it may induce stress cracks.

Camera,LCD display,Wi fi combo and some mounts have arrived (Next day delivery).
Just waiting for the floaty back, Card and some cables to show up. Looking good for the weekend.

I Like your Zapcat footage. Which angle of view were you using on when on the boat? I see it has 3 different options.

what do mean? the resolution or the actual mounts? it was filming at 960p 48fps. And i have 2 curved plates on my helmet, one on the side and another one the top. then theres one plate on the transom facing back which is the first shot of the boat going along. then i have a mount on the engine hood facing back & forward, one on the tiller....& then lastly one on the co-pilot helmet and one on the nose cone! .....theres even an 8th mount at the back of the engine looking down at the prop! just a few mount haha.

& yes! they're so worth it! definatly not a pleasure boat but amazing fun. you can take them any sea conditions anywhere & at top speed basically all the way!

According to the blurb, there is a choice of 70, 127 and 90 degrees Field Of View. I wondered what you had yours set at as it looked about right?

HD HERO2 Professional
1080p | 960p | 720p |
WVGA 120 | 60 | 48 | 30 FPS
11 Mega Pixel
110 Photos/sec
70 | 127 | 90 FOV

I agree about fancying a Zapcat, they do look fun!

There is a difference of 60 between the Hero2 Motorsports and the Hero2 Outdoors edition.Is it the same camera with different mounts or am I missing something?

110 photos/sec in photo burst is 10 photos/sec
In HD PAL video mode it's 25fps...the manual assumes NTSC @30fps, the default mode :roll eyes:
Can't find a reference to 90 FOV?

Yes, it's the same camera. Yes, it's different mounts. No, you're not missing anything
