Anyone have the LCD screen for the GoPro? They are on sale at Best Buy and I was thinking of picking one up. I just picked up a GoPro Outdoor for $185 shipped w/ no tax on Amazon.

Something is not right on that video. The hero 2 isn't that bad underwater, and from reading the specs on it you wouldn't expect it to be that much different.

Also, remember you can mess with image control settings on fcp7 or adobe premier to brighten up or even sharpen your video

I got the hero 2 for $240 plus tax at best buy, they price matched it from amazon in august

How much are the lcd screens going for? I got mine for 70 from amazon, the touch screen function on the new ones won't work with the go pro 2

Dude, the original GoPro and Hero2 were both known to be terrible performers underwater and it was largely due to the convex housing around the lens. The new underwater housing is comparatively flat and much more improved, let alone the entire camera sensor.

The regular housing on the 2 isnt great... Put the 2 into the dive housing and it looks the same.

$59.99, but looks like a local store sale only for some reason. And yeah I didn't know BestBuy would match amazon. I got my suction cup mount and a grab bag of mounts at Amazon prices at Best Buy the other day.

http://www.bestbuy.com/site/GoPro+-+...66&strClr=true

Also guys, GoPro.com has free shipping for a few days! I just picked up a Hero2 Dive Housing for $39.99 and saved the $9.99 in shipping

For the Hero3 Black what size card should I get? 32 or 64? The price difference is about double, I have a 32 for my Hero2 and never fill it up so I'm leaning towards the 32. Has anyone seen specs on how much footage that will be on the H3 Black?

Anyone ever lose or have a gopro fall off whatever it is stuck to with the suction cup?

I plan on shooting some video on a car that has vinyl all over it. I may tie a cord/rope to it just to be safe.

32. 64 is newer and may have more problems.

I don't know about the vinyl but on a window or fenders, hood, etc.. It's on pretty good. First time I stuck it on a part of the car, I tied it up with a string cause I was scared it would fall off at highways speed. It Holds up really good.

I have friends who place the go pro with suction cup on top of their car for track sessions. They hit 120MPH and I haven't seen one fall off. They clean the surface before mounting, btw.

Gopro has the 64 listed on their site, that is why I asked.

I had one fall off the F30Driver.com project 328i. We were filming the X1 and had it on the bumper. The bumper has some flex so it was able to move around, over bumps it slipped down to a seam, broke the suction and fell off. We were only doing 25 or so and the camera was fine, the lens got scratched but it is replaceable so it wasn't a big deal.

Had it mounted to my snowboard and it fell off, luckily the ski patrol found it. It was on the whole time, here is the video.

Mine stuck fine to my car's paint, and sticks just fine to my vinyl wrap. As was stated, just be sure to wipe the surface off first.

Edit: You can actually see mine stuck to my car in my sig lol
