i should have thought about that before.. but since their product is so good i trusted their surf support mount....

if it happened when i lived in america whoever found the camera on the beach would find a way to give back to me...
now here in brazil... different story.. if someone found it probably watched the videos.. showed their friends... laughed at my brothers face.. and posted it on youtube.. the whole time knowing it belonged to me..

sad

I have two of the originals. Loved em EXCEPT for the damn fisheye lens! It makes everything look so cheesy and unprofessional. There is a way to get rid of that but it voids the warranty of course and you can't use the protective plastic casing with it.

And no, post production fixes aren't that good for it either.

That being said I'd like to have five of these babies in total.

Well, the camera showed up at my house earlier today. All of the features and new LCD display are amazing compared to the OG HD Hero. Unfortunately I have run into a small problem.

I don't know whether to blame the software or hardware but the camera doesn't like to be turned back on shortly after powering it down post usage (ie. recording a video). It will either not do anything or turn the LCD screen completely black. I either have to let it sit for like 5-10 minutes or pull the battery and leave it for 5-10 minutes before it turns back on again. It's a bit frustrating, I've reached out to GoPro Support in order to find a solution. Hopefully they'll just send me updated firmware without requiring me to send the camera back.

That aside, I absolutely love the thing and would definitely recommend it to anyone that is looking for a portable, high video quality, durable, camera.
