I will be doing some helicopter back country this season and figured that I should buy one of these little cameras. I got a brand new HD Hero for $100 and have a few questions.
-How do you guys manage to get such good videos with them? Are you on the 720 or 1080?
-What's the best way to mount them to yourself? Monopod isn't really my favorite option and the helmet mount doesn't seem too sturdy. If a monopod/pole really is the best way, are there any out there that can fold up an fit into a small backpack?
-Is hero 2 really worth the close to $200 difference that it would be for me?
I use 720, 1080 takes a whole lot of computer to edit along with space.
Helmet mount is sturdy, just tether it to the strap or a vent. Extendable monopod fits in my backpack when I'm not using it.
Not sure, I have the previous model and don't see a reason to upgrade soon.
