    Very slick, Nick.

    I will definitely get a zipline setup happening, but a very dodgy one, might even use foam to brake it as it hits the tree the line is attached to.

    I am quite a fan of leaving a GoPro on 2sec still mode, there are usually 2 or 3 great shots out of the 1000 or so it takes. Much like most people use "normal" digital still cameras.

    Next is a chest mount. I used a 3M GoPro mount on the front of my 661 Coresaver. I was concerned about 3M mount coming off; but has put up with alot of use with no issues so far.

    Last is what I call the unicorn or narwhal helmet mount.

    you might want to make sure that unicorn mount will break free decently easy, or you might be breaking your neck instead of protecting your head if you fall, and need to make use of the helmet.

    People,
    Do we really need to see the same pictures over and over and over and over and over?

    Just ordered a GoPro finally today. Went with the motorsports package as the camera will be seeing multi-sport use very soon.

    I definitely will be making some mounts for my bike, may even start dummy'ing some ideas into cardboard tonight and picking up some materials. A slew of custom mounts will be used for my quad as well, I'll post some mount-builds once it happens.

    Love the ideas so far.

    Hi

    Just got my gopro hd, i was wondering if i attached my gopro to a hardtail bike seatpost and rode it offroad, would the vibrations break the camera in the long run?

    I was just curiouse because shurely the camera is taking a bit of a shake in!

    Also is it worth updating my firmware?

    Yours sincerely

    The GoPro cameras are pretty damn tough and given that they don't have any moving parts it should be fine for that set-up. I think the problem will more likely be that the video will have a lot of vibration in it so you aren't going to want to watch hours of it set up like that. Setting up on your seat post will be good to get a different angle every now and then to create different angles for editing videos but I don't think you'll want to use this set-up as your primary shot.

    If what you are riding over is smooth enough to get a half decent shot then I am sure the GoPro will handle many hours of that level of vibration.

    Yep, it's always a good idea to be running the latest firmware on your GoPro. You will definitely need the latest version of the firmware if you want to run it in upside down mode which you may need to do if you use the seatpost mount.

    What if i'm already happy with the way my camera is, does the firmware improve recording quality?

    If i don't install it is it bad for the gopro cam in the future?

    I already have the upside down mode aswell.. does this mean i could have the latest version?

    Thanks for replies

    Yours sincerely

    I use my seat post mount all the time on some very rough trails. No problems.

    Do you worry about the firmware updates?

    Thanks for reply

    You dont really need the update, it won't effect the video quality. but if you use it upside down or for 3D you may want to update, also I think it also makes it so you can use some of the newer accesories like the battery bac pac and the video viewer

    If you allready have the Upside down mode you probably allready have the current firmware.

    My gopro did not have the upside down mode but I got it over a year ago.
