What GoPro should i get?
Hey guys, I am in the market for my first GoPro and I was wondering which one I would want to get. I know they have different styles, like Surf, Car, Standard, ext... I am planing on mounting it on my jet ski. Please let me know what you think!

first.. how much did you want to spend?
the gopro hero comes in at $129 BUT it does not have a removable battery and it does not come out of the case so once it out of juice that it til ya charger it.
the hero 3 white will be $199 and the rest go up from there. what i would look for and even hit craigslist is try to find a hero 3 or 3+ black with accessories for around $300.
if you opt to go the CL route be aware (unless they changed this) that gopro will not warranty the camera. gotta but new and register it for that. the benifit to going CL is you can usually get a good amount of extras with it as well as a memory card.
to me the 4 is not worth the cost. my hero 3 black does tons of crap i never use but i snagged it on a black Friday deal for $250.
a few must haves for these..
extra batteries - wasabi makes some good stuff
class 10 micro sd card - brand is up to you but i would avoid no name brands
tether - home made or store bought
adhesive mounts - get a pack of the curved as you will use those more than the flat
extra thumb screws are always good
other stuff that seem to be favorites among gopro uses are the suction cup mount, gopole evo (floating) and reach poles, chesty and head strap mount.

Have you looked at the Garmin Virb elite? I just got one and will be trying it out this weekend. It has a lot of features.
