    Not another GOPRO thread :(

    HA HA. I am buying a black edition Hero3. since it's waterproof I'm guessing I don't need the waterproof case unless to tether? Also where have you guys been mounting it on an 08 RXP-X? any reviews of the 3?

    If your referring the the actual camera itself being waterproof, it's not! It's the clear housing that it sits in that is waterproof ......

    I mount mine on the hood of my RXP using the gopro suction cup mount. I also attach the floaty back to the housing for peace of mind even though it doesn't do a good job of keeping the camera and suction mount afloat =\.

    Use the adhesive mounts. Don't trust a suction cup.

    Mines mounted to the hood of my RXP. Then I bought a lens ring off of EBay for it and a tether kit as well. I have broken mounts on my mountain bike, but not on my ski. I have a floaty back door also. Well worth the money for the peace of mind. If you search the other gopro thread there is a link to the seller about the lens rings.

    I don't read that from the* but thanks for the quip dude. I'll get the housing. the optional accesserories* is at the top of the page which ldoesn't necessarily apply to the specs...why in the hell would they list it as a spec if it's a seperate component. I really appreciate the help though...notice the middle finger that I'm giving you sitting at my desk right now and read.

    Cheers

    Here's a good comparison of the models.
    http://gopro.com/product-comparison-hero3-cameras

    If you buy a new GP they come with the housing which is waterproof, a few adhesive mounts. It doesn't come with a SD card so don't forget to pick up one also.
