    FWIW there is a new Go Pro HD 960 that only does 30 fps, but it gets the cost down to $180. For fishing, rafting, etc...30 fps is sufficient.

    Go for the HD one if you get them. I just used a friends standard issue gopro for racing, and the sound sucked!!! Half of watching a in car racing video is sound and it would have lots of pops in it (think bad record...). The only thing I could think of would be shimming the back of the camera... Maybe it is just a bit smaller than the case... I dunno...
    I did like the auto flip option though... I mounted it on my sunroof, in car upside down. Video was pretty good as long as I was not driving into the sun, then it would get a bit of a glare.
    But there were some guys running the hd's and said they were perfect!
