Tim: It looks like the start of a North Korean horror flick. The special effects guys could save a lot of money.

I got one of the early Heros .. it was pretty useless unless you had Colorado sunshine. I hooked it onto the nose of my skateboard. That was fun.. All play is good.

I've been playing around a little with the HD Hero... I'll post something when I get some stuff together.

Yes...good fun indeed.

Look forward to seeing it Tim. I have also been windsurfing with three 1080p GoPro cameras. Once I send out a few projects with deadlines I plan on putting up some fun clips. Amazing where you can put these and just let them run.

Yes, all these little cameras (not just the GoPro) are a small investment for the amount of weird "out-of-the-box" visualization you can do with them.

That underwater footage was done while I was on vacation, so it was just a fun thing. Everyone enjoyed looking at the footage and the stills without donning wetsuits and scuba tanks... The darn things paid for themselves right there as far as I was concerned (not to mention that I recently used the roller handle extension to paint my office walls).

For what they are, they're great. I also have to advocate the GoPro mounting hardware...it's a pretty well thought-out collection of little gadgets that do their job quite well.

The GoPro 3d rig will be fun to see once it's out, too. It was on display at NAB.

Agree Tim fun little tools. Not the footage I can get from the Canon HF10 and not even close to my EX, F800 or similar but for nice short dramatic cuts.

I used a GoPro last year on a Mountain Bike video in Moab along with a CountorHD 720p and both did a great job for fast cuts mixed in. With the GoPro you get waterproof which for me is a must. So when they were 1/3 off at NAB I purchased a few more.

I will second the mounting hardware the offer most of what you need and it lets you be creative.
