Great video. It doesn't look like you have a sunroof... were did you stick the GoPro?

I do have a sunroof actually!

I am using a CruiseCam Short Bar mount: http://www.cruisecam.com/products.html

Works really well. Can't say I'm a fan of the GoPro Hero 3 -- extremely short battery life and you have to decide between external mic or external power (can't do both it would seem). But the video did work out pretty good. Wish I had shot it in higher res though!

Thanks for the link! So, I guess GoPro didn't improve battery life on the Hero 3. I find I have very short battery life on my Hero2 and wondered if I should try upgrading to the Hero 3. You settled that question for me.
