    Hero Cams... get the full HD version, right?

    My Christmas present is the hero cam. I shoud do the FULL HD version, right? They have that 960 HD version but I'm thinking the 720 60 frame per second should be killer.... I also want to get the chest strap thing so I can do some night ride jumps. I think it would be cool?

    Good thing since it already shipped. Said that the 720p 60fps is a wider angle and I would think that is the mode I'll be using 99.9% of the time.

    Good buy. Even though the 1080p is practically worthless, the 720/60 is what I use and I like it.

    Yes, steel is most certainly stronger than aluminum EVERY time.

    The 720/60 FPS is a must for action sports IMO. Smoother video.

    i got the motorsports 1080 one because it was only $237 at Amazon...

    i think i actually like the mounts that came with it better anyway... they look to be more easily modded...

    You can get the helmet mount full HD one at bikebling.com for $225 right now. "holiday10" or something for the discount.

    HEY DOG: This isn't on a Hero but I thought you might like to see it. It's me riding just before dark trying to win the Baja Designs Strykr light contest:

    My favorite type of trail. I've been throwing side jumps here and there on one of my favorite trails. Stuff I used to think only I knew about but I've noticed other tread marks on them in the mud lately
