A lot of the guys I work with use it. 60FPS at 720p is pretty good for a helmet cam. Its also one of the few that shoots in true 1080p as far as I know.

Snowboarding Is...

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends

I have been using one for mountain biking, but I have not tried it boarding yet. I think it is a great little camera, and I love the fact that I dont need to worry about breaking it when it is in the housing. Editing it can be a pain when shooting in full 1080 due to file size and computing power, so I usually use 720p 60fps. Make sure you get a nice 8gig or 16gig sd card for it, you will run out of memory quickly if shooting in HD.

Make a search, there have been several threads about POV cams lately.

I bought a Gopro HD Hero yesterday, waiting for it to get shipped to Revelstoke.

I agree. Do a search and a ton of GoPro threads will pop up. But if you need further convincing on whether this is a worthy camera just take a look at this video. Completely shot with the GoPro HD.

You should also check out the Vholdr contour HD 1080p cam. I had both and like the contour much better.
