video comparo is really difficult to assess as it's run through youtube, I'm not using a 1080p monitor to view them. They all look the same to me. Basically, the best camera would be the cheapest and most reliable out of the group.

GoPro 3 is so annoying The skeleton case has no holes on the side to run an external mike Now am I suppoed to drill a hole there or spend another $40 for yetanother accessory, a new case which has the holes on the side

Am leaning towards just returning this damn thing and getting a GoPro 2.

I'll do a straight up trade of my GoPro2 (with the wifi-bacpac) for your GoPro3. So no accessories included (other than our charging cords, our clear housings, and my wifi bacpac).
Let me know if you're interested. Also I'm in DC metro, so we can meet up half way (Bel Air or Aberdeen, MD), or we can do it through the mail.

Thanks. Did some more research and looks like the 3 is indeed much better. Just saw this video and changed my mind about the 2. It looks so fat and bulky in comparison

Below is obviously with just the skeleton back.
SICK! I will definitely consider going this route too. Thanks for the post.

This is the best deal I found on an action camera...Astak ActionPro

http://www.amazon.com/Actionpro-Camc...ords=actionpro

Checkout videos on youtube, the video quality is actually pretty good and the kit comes with almost every accessory you would need.
