Watched one to many Go-Pro videos and picked up the wrist mount today at REI. Now I am gadget rich and technical know how poor.... Heading to Costa Rica in 2 weeks, so the wrist mount will be cool for surfing.

well, we should remedy that over a few pints. mondays and wednesdays work best for me and i'm not scheduled for any travel for another couple of weeks. last day of school was today as well so that makes things quite a bit easier.

I'm watching for a used good quality ping pong table to donate to BC's upper room.

Old thread back up.

So, I'm heading back to Italy and was wanting to take a smaller (less bulky) camera than my DSLR. I got to thinking and was wondering, why buy a point and shoot that will essentially never be used again after the trip. Maybe take a GoPro2 and just use it as a still camera? Then when I get back I have something to mount up on the bike/truck/board/etc where the DSLR would never work.

Thoughts?

If you ask me it's not that great for just taking pictures- I have found the OS very cumbersome, it's cool to set it up once then go do something, but not what you want if you want to frame in the shot, view it afterwards, let's take another one, how did that look... you'll be there all day pressing the same 2 damn buttons fighting the OS navigation. IMHO, obviously. Borrow someone's for a while and check it out.
