    This may be nuts, but all your videos of plowing with these GoPro's --- that keep me going when its raining here in December and January! --- caused me to ask for one for Christmas and walla - Christmas eve it came! So - now I gotta figure out how to work this - where to place it etc!? I saw one guy last year in Nemo in CT with it mounted OUTSIDE and it never got clouded up at all - seen guys mount it on mirrors - maybe even hoods? Any suggestions - slow mo - time elapsed - where to put it or links to your GoPro vids???

    I just bought one a few months back . I post most of my videos on youtube. Ill have more videos soon once we get more decent storms.

    They are great little cameras tho. I like mine so far.

    Link some here. Good spot to start Video Feeds since there is not a thread for videos separate from pics

    they use a microSD card so get as big as you want aslong as its a class 4 or bigger I think for hd video

    Nope they dont come with an sd card. I use a magnet mount and suction cup.

    I suggest buying an sandisk ultra 64gb . MY camera sure likes it.

    This is my channel https://www.youtube.com/user/MrGiovannix12


    I just bought a chesty mount and Planning on buying a head mount soon

    Woulda been nice to know they did NOT come with a card! 64 gets you a ton of footage? Thats the biggest one? Do you edit yours on a mac iMovie?

    Shoulda started this under storm pics and just posted video here…wonder if we can move the thread...

    admin or mod can move the thread. With a 64gb card I could get a decent amount of footage. I mean I have 3 batterys for this camera and still cant fill up my sd card with the 3 battery's fully charged.

    I dont have a mac so I cant answer that question but go pro will provide editing software also I use windows movie maker.

    On all the go pro vids I have seen it looks like the lens never gets snow or water on it while filming, how is that? OR are people probably just editing out any bad footage? I know nothing about them so are there different versions and one to look for?
    TIA
    Merry x-mas a day late !!

    I just got the GoPro Hero 3+ Black - its now the latest one - it makes coffee for you!! I still need to go buy a card for it so I haven't even used it! The camera actually sits in an enclosed case, but again - I have not used it - these guys will know more.

    I just came from website. I would imagine that you would want a lot of the different mounts ? So..the Hero=3 comes in/ with the waterproof case/
    Are most of you in the loader using your phone to make changes?

    My go pro would get snow on the lens. Sometimes you dont see the snow on it.
