Good off road camera

Hey folks. Been looking into getting a camera to mount on my jeep while off-roading. I've had my iphone clipped to my visor upside down and works fairly well but I want something that I can just run all day and not have to worry about filling up the memory (have a 8gb iphone so I don't have much spare memory). I've been looking at a wide variety and am just wondering what type of set ups are out there! Pro's/Con's of your set up? All info is appreciated. Thanks!

haven't heard anything bad about this thing besides the audio isn't the greatest...it's the one I'd get if I was in the market for one.

Go Pros are nice but you might want to look at the Stealth HD cameras too

i have a bunch of r/c helis, cars and planes that i put my gopro on to make vids. i also mount it to my front bumper when hitting up some trails and it works great even over some bumpy trials.

B&H audio video had the previous model of Stealth HD clearance the other week. Real good price and they gave you the extended battery with it free.

I have a Nikon AW100 I just used it at Jeep Jamboree Pine Barrens and it worked great. HD Movies, Clear crisp stills, shock proof up to a 5 foot drop, cold weather camera, water proof. It has a GPS for geotagging. I haven't use the GPS and not sure if it has other uses as well. I bought mine at Costco for under $300. it came with some extras but I don't remember what they were.

My boss uses a helmet mounted go-pro on his dirt bike. He's taken some pretty bad spills, jars, been bounced all over the place, gotten it wet.. and it still works.

I have the go pro hero 2 and it is great. Also 4 wheel parts offers a warranty on the go pro for when you crush it.

I use a gopro and love it. I can mount it just about anywhere you can think of, and I dont have to worry about breaking it, cuz it can take a good beating. It has many settings that are fun to play with...including the ability to create time lapses which I have messing around with a lot lately.

Sounds like the go pro is pretty solid. Probably going to pick it up

You wont be disappointed. There is a lot that you can do with them and most of the mounts are pretty solid.

Can't go wrong with a GoPro, in my opinion. There was a decent discussion not too long ago about the pros-cons:
