Thinkin about getting a GoPro 2 for this year's spearfishing trips. What do you think of them? Any upgrades you can think of? If you have pictures please post them. Thanks.

Default go pro

Go Pro is a cool little camera. see my ft lauderdale video. it is best with full screen and music. It is not full 1080p because I didn't know how long to upload.

It is important that you get the flat lens cover that screws on in place of the curved model or it will be blurry for underwater use. Buy from Mako spearguns and you get a free flat lens cover. otherwise this is $21 . I recommend the LCD backpack so you can see what you are filming as you film. The head strap is fine for things like mountain biking but you swivel your head so much underwater you will get a spastic looking video. Better to hand hold.

Actuallly, I do li9ke the headstrap as a handle for handholding camera. If you see my video, you will note I swim the camera between 2 sea fans near the end. This is done by hand (they were about 6 inches apart.) is the mako site.

good luck. BTW, this august, I am making an extension with panning ability to use my Go pro to go cage diving with great white sharks.

BTW, this next vid is not gopro but you may like,
I was 2 ft from sand tiger sharks. MK
