I have a GoPro hero. It's pretty cool, and takes good video. The mounting system is versatile, though on my boat, it wants to flip down once your over 90-95 out in the wind. I think I may just need to really crank it down. It's a nice setup.

www.replayxd.com. IMHO, much better camera than the GoPro for about the same amount of money, and has better mounting options........

I use Tachyon xc I didnt like the go pro because of the fish eye effect or to get rid of it you had to get the other camera they make and the field of view was more limited. The tachyon is waterproof, so the sound is not that good, but other than that it is awesome. example video of mine from last season. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m73zJJNTfk8
