School me on the Go Pro and the different models, needed accessories, where to buy, etc.
Would use to film hunts and fishing trips/underwater shots.

If you want to get a feel for quality check out the gopro duck hunts on youtube. The black edition should be best for duck hunting, they are pretty cool. I used one Saturday and checked out the footage later. It was the silver edition I borrowed from a friend and I was impressed by the quality, but the birds were also a bit far out and that didn't turn out great. On a full charge and blank 64gb memory card I got about an hour and a half of continuous footage. One drawback is you can't tell what you are shooting there is no window to see what the camera sees.

After borrowing one I think I will likely get one - the black edition. It's a fun way to keep track of your hunts. If I do get it I'll also pony up for a 64gb memory card and headstrap mount. You can get it many places, Cabelas, best buy, amazon.

Buddy has the Hero 3 black edition that he uses for spear fishing at rigs. Clarity is amazing in HD even when they're down 100 ft. Just hooks right onto the mask.

Can watch footage from phone or other wireless device, or use it as remote etc. Hero2 the wifi backpak is a must.
