    That sucks Artie, I don't see how it could break - when I bought mine it was packaged hardcore.

    People, cut it out. We're going to Hawaii in a month and one of the kids is coming. I just bought stuff from Dusty and Kyle. This camera would get some great pictures of me and the kid surfing. Looks like I gotta check the bank account. I guess you can't take it with you.

    I was saving up for perfect pass next summer, but if I keep looking at the forums I'll never get it.

    Ron,
    Go Pro now Perfect pass in four months. Win Win. I took my go pro with me to Hawaii and went all over with it. I did not take it diving since i just got it when i went but now i would since it works great. Somthing back then about taking it 60 feet down even with knowing it is rated for 120 feet. Only thing i would do is before you open it being in salt water is to do a fresh water wash then let it dry.

    1. Unfortunately my play money doesn't add up that quickly. But I'll probably be getting the camera before we go, and get a loan if I have to for PP. Can't put it in until spring anyway. Probably last time son will be with us on a vacation. He's already looking at moving out on his own.
    2. We've already got another compact underwater camera, and did exactly what you said before salt water exposure. In addition, after every exposure we immerse the camera in a sink filled with fresh water for about 15 minutes, to clean it out as much as possible

    We got it in from the fed ex guy and heard se rattling around inside it and upon further investigation we found a small piece of black plastic bouncing around that appears to be from the black bracket that hold the actual camera. Very small defect but for 300 bucks I want it to be new new

    Do you guys use the GoPro just for action/water sports and have another video camera for Christmas morning, everyday around the house, family trips etc?

    Needing a video camera in the worst way, but need one that does all of the above. Don't really mind buying two, but if the GoPro will do both then thats what I will purchase.

    I ended up with the Kodak Playsport bc I wanted one that could do both. Are you stuck with the wide angled lense for gopro or can you switch? I think that is the only issue you would have using the gopro for both.

    I just bought the Go Pro for 188 free shipping BOOM SHAKALAKA

    I plan to have mounds of wicked videos off the boat this year, we got the brackets to mount it to the stern of the boat for surfing.
