I need a new camera & keep looking at them, but don't wanna feel like I was sucked into all the GoPro hype.

Anybody here have 1? I have 1 question about them that neither GoPro nor an owner has been able to answer clearly. All I get is long winded "explanations" that are really of zero help at all.

Or does anybody here have an alternative suggestion on a camera besides the GoPro?

Well.....I ordered a GoPro Hero2 Motorsports package last night, with extra batteries, a larger card & a few other accessories. So I guess I'll find my answer in 3-5 days!

All the videos I've seen with them on cars, airplanes, helmets, whatever, they seem to work really well

Depends on your definition of "work really well". Do you really like seeing the "fish eyed" view of things all curved, especially the horizon? If you like that? Then you are right. I however, do not like it.

But I think I figured out the cause & how to fix it. Mine will be here on Friday so we'll see.

I don't think every model is like that, I've seen some really high production quality shots from those things, and there wasnt a fish eye effect

Me too but neither GoPro themselves nor the dozen GoPro owners that I've asked could give a straight answer.

Real simple question but nobody can give a straight answer of WHY one video is fish-eyed & 1 video isn't. Even asking an owner who has both types of videos couldn't give a straight answer of why.

I have 2 different theories on that that I'll be testing starting this weekend. UPS tracking shows it to be in Mesquite this morning with an expected delivery date of this Friday.

Well.....It came in today & within a hour (the selection method to go through things kinda sucks) I found the answer. Amazing that t is such a simple answer that NOBODY could say it. Human stupidity boggles my mind sometimes.....

"3 recording modes......

Wide
Medium
Narrow

On Wide it fish eyes. On Medium & Narrow it doesn't."

Amazing how SIMPLE the answer is, yet no buyers I've contacted could say that? Boggles my mind at Human stupidity.

Check the Classifieds.....I'm not keeping it, selling it.
