    GoPro Cameras - who's got em?

    I dig the 170degree field of view.

    Anyone have one of these? Are there better alternatives?

    Do not have one. It seems like every freakin' kid under 15 skis/rides with one attached to their helmet.

    I have a Replay:



    Replay Cameras

    I can put it on my bike, helmet, rifle, etc. Works just fine.

    Why do people do anything? You want to know what I record?

    They are pretty cool, but I have absolutely zero use for them. I guess I can mount one on my dash and record my 45 min commute everyday.

    GoPro Hero 3 just gets marketed better than others, so that's all you hear about.

    Paulie, attach it to your dogs collar watch him dig holes or eat his food, they are small and light. I had a buddy put one next to a par three hole, he got a hole in one, and on film!

    I got my Replay for free. If I had to pick, I'd probably have gone with the GoPro since I've never heard of the Replay, even though it does the same exact thing.

    I can only think of one real good use for these things.

    It's just a camera. It's rigged so the viewer sees the vantage point of the camera's operator, or vantage point of the bike. Put it on a helmet and you have an idea of where the guy is looking.

    You can help train someone, correct errors, etc. that's how I use mine.

    And every once in a while you obtain a hilarious tidbit which is used for blackmail.

    My wife really wanted one for christmas, so I got it for her. It's still in the box. It probably always will be. Me? I drink.

    I might strap one on my dork next time I go balls deep. You know, for science.

    They should make cars... Or maybe upgrade tanks.
    You'll see why if you watch this.
