My buddy and I each have a GoPro HD Hero. We are going to video our hunts this year. I attach mine to the base of one of my custom foamer full body goose decoys that face us. He has one that he either wears on his head or one that will sit behind us. The picture quality is excellent. We still have some tweaking to do.

Mine shouldn't flare birds, it is tucked under a gooses *** looking out at us. My buddy made a camo box of sorts to place his in.Looking forward to Tuesday morning.

I have an I-Kam.I like it.The quality is alright...not the greatest but it works for me.
I have the black model- I don't feel that the camo would make a difference.

Here is an example I filmed. You can search youtube for whatever camera you are thinking about to see other examples.

Benny, What's the distance those will shoot do you get good focus from we'll say 0-35 yds?

You can't zoom in with them, but you can see pretty well. It has a 170 degree view, both horizontally and vertically. Hopefully tomorrow I will have some good footage to post.
