What Can You Say?... It Uniquely Goes!


I have wanted a GoPro for some unique perspective water shots for a while now. With the summer ending... I thought it was high time. I love the shots that I can get with this little puppy. I wish it were higher res... but come on. It is small, cheap, and durable. It goes where non-pros can afford to go, ya know? Nikon, if you read this PLEASE let me borrow a housing for my D800, D3200 & d90, PLEASE! I won't let you down. (I am serious!) Until then, I will use this baby for all it is worth taking unique shots in the drink. The surf mount is not very impact resistant. No matter how hard I tighten the mount screw, it goes face down on landings on my wakeboard, windsurfer, and kite surfer. I have adapted with epoxy, but I shouldn't have to go that far to make it survive a landing. Oh well... It still does a good job, especially for the price.
