I'm sure it can be run off a USB charger, just not with any of the Stock cases. Even with the provided skeleton case, you would not be able to plug in the usb.

Anyway, I ended up taking back my gopro Hero3 white edition. I bought the Sony HDR AS-15 and I am very happy with the deal. I made a comparison video of both of them and I urge anyone that is considering buying a gopro to watch this video before buying, especially if you are going to audio in your videos and/or you think you will be shooting video in some low light situations.

Obviously you need to view the video in 1080p and full screen for best quality

oneeyebear When recording a video in the jeep there is an annoying distorted audio sound constantly throughout the video. I have looked it up and it seems to be a very common issue. I am thinking about returning it and looking into other options.

woansleftpeg There are loads of cheap ones on Amazon at $20-30 plus the cost of a memory card. No idea how good they are, but for that price they seem like a good starting point.

Hardermods I recommend the handlebar mount if you drive a TJ. It fits nice either from the rearview mirror post for a nice over the hood view. Or fits the side mirrors when your doors are on for a nice side shot

TylerU I only used those mount and staps on my bike's halmet, which i think it was designed for...

Get some duct tape, wrap it anywhere you want.. I mount it on my side view mirror...

I will look into it, bestbuy had gopro rechargeable batteries for 20$ or 30$ too, would it not be better to just get the GoPros?

.....So now comes the question, where should I dash mount the go pro? It came with a curved adhesive mount that I would like to put on the dash somewhere. This will be until I invest in some other mounts.

Hardermods While you're saving money for a Gopro, go to their website everyday and enter the Daily Drawing...... Odds are probably like 1 in 5 million but its worth it if you win and only takes a second of your time.

oneeyebear haha very understandable from what I have heard... I like the idea of a cell phone mount. I may just have to end up going to go pro route when I can afford it. Thanks for the suggestions so far.

Sinister6 Look at Tachyon cameras. They are bomb proof, weather proof, water proof and take awesome videos. I've used mine during mountain bike races, wheeling, hunting and it's never let me down. And I've beat the hell out of it!!

And can record a couple hours worth of video.

Does anyone know of a good camera/mount?
I'm assuming you've seen the Go Pro Hero 3 which has a black front. yes that quite a bit $$$$. but insteaf I bought the hero 2, the old version on amazon, comes a lot of mounts and stickers and its about $199.. even a compact camera is gonna cost you about the same.

Frenz my new android (13 mega pixel Galaxy) and a suction cup mount is up to that challenge. Honestly the suction cup holds on.
05-11-2013 07:47 AM
americonium Yes. Unfortunately the recommendation i would make is the go pro. I have seen it in action, and it is awesome. I have some video from Rousch Creek last year. I'll see if i can find it.
