Go Pro Camera

So, I'm putting together an x-mas list, and I've come to realize my phone is not really setup to do any type of good recordings. I like the idea of a gopro, so I went to the website. And thats where I got lost. I can't tell the differences between the packages! The only thing I know I want is I want the camera, I want the helmet strap attachment, and I want the roll cage attachment.

Does anyone know the differences between the packages? They all look the same, except for the surf version. What do most people go with for jeeping?

The diffrent versions(outdoor, motorsports, surf) just includes diffrent mounts for the camera, if you want the helmet strap you probably need the outdoor edition and will have to buy the rollbar mount for an additional $29.99.
I personally would get the motorsports edition and buy the rollbar mount. The motorsports gives you way more mounting options. It includes curved mounts that can attatch to a helmet (that's what I use on my ATV helmet) and an adjustable arm.

I have the HD Hero and I bought the motorsports package. The suction mount is what I use more than anything.

I have the original Go Pro Hero Wide as well with the motorsports package. It takes nice video and requires alot less computer power, ram and memory to edit the vids compared to an HD video.

You'll love it, and you'll use it a lot more than you think.
