You're way too hung up on how you LOOK. I could give a shit what the GoPro looks like on top of my helmet, I don't see it. I prefer to be able to see the HD vids at the end of day out.
Admit it teletubby, it's like boarding with a flatscreen TV on your head.
Not to start a debate but from what I've seen most current cameras get the same quality video in back to back comparisons.
The problem is GoPro doesn't HAVE to make it in the deck of cards format, they're doing it now because it's their look. Looks like shit to me...
