I've got a GoPro HD.

Flatport: I'm using the Mako flatport, which works great, just a slight vignette on photos but for the price is great. Gonna upgrade to the newer scratch resistant version soon.

Accessories: right now just the wrist mount. Still can't decide which way I prefer to mount but at least with wrist mount if you need your hands for something you don't have to drop the camera

Tips: I'm going to order from Amazon the Wasabi Power battery kit. $26.99usd for two 1400mAh batteries (stock gopro batteries are 1100mAh) wall and car charger

Also it seems to not do so well at very close up shots. Need to be maybe 6-12 inches away to get proper focus IMO

Questions:
1) still looking for a good way to restore color in my videos. Can't seem to figure out how to do it properly in Sony Vegas. Would love if someone could show what software they use and how to do it

2) lighting. Right now if I shine one of my torches at stuff and video I get an overexposed white spot. Center or spot metering mode. Not sure if anyone has some input on this to get better clarity at depth etc

I ordered the Battery from a China supplier on EBay. so far so good. They ship via HK Post and sent to me by Singpost. As long as you go through VPost or CGW, they don't allow shipment of Batteries without the device.

Ya I keep it on through from start till safety stop of dive..about 30-40 min length and 3gb long! lol


Did you kept the Camera ON all the time even if not recording ??

This might heat up the inside too much. Those silly desciccant pack GoPro sells are way too $$$$ even if they could be reused up to 4 times... Maybe Daiso got something like it at $2 only... heehee  :P

I can confirm that VPost will reject to process your entire invoice if you have loose batteries in the same batch. A check with boderlinx shows the same.

Two things have altered not
Since first the World began
The beauty of the wild green earth
