    I would like to put one on my motorcycle but I'm a dummy when it comes to this this shit. They list all these specs but I can't seem to find out what it means. Anyone here know about these things and can spell it out for a dummy? Badfunn, you out there, don't you have one of these?

    My friends who scuba love them. They're always showing me videos they took while swimming at coral reefs and shit.

    They look like a lot of fun. They have three different models. I'm trying to figure out what I need without going overboard.

    I have a model 2, which is 1080 HD. The new model 3s vary based on megapixels, and the Black edition can go to 4000 HD and it's got a 12 mpixel cam. If you can swing it I'd get the top of the line it will stay relevant longer.

    Looks like they run about $200 difference between the low end & the high end. The only thing I seem to understand about the difference is the Black has a auto low light adjustment.

    Those look really difficult to install. I thought you were mechanically inclined.:rolleye:

    flathead....a lot of the racers up at Summit Point use these mounted on their cars. Quality seems to be pretty good even with the noise and turbulence at 150mph.

    They are cool.

    But you actually need to do something interesting for full effect.

    Walking down to the mailbox isn't very exciting on video.
