    I would recommend the JVC adixxion over go pro. It is lighter, less to no noticible fish eye water proof right out of the box. Has a mount on the side and the bottom.
    Overall a better product and less money.
    I hunt because......

    Are you using it for hunting? If so GoPros have there place but the audio leaves a lot to be desired. Also you cannot zoom in or out with a GoPro they are pretty much point and shoot.I would rather have a smaller video camera than a GoPro. Mark

    Depends what you are using it for. No zoom with most POV cameras like GoPro and without a flat lens, the GoPro underwater footage is blurry. Here is one of my fishing videos on the crystal clear Devils River in Texas. I was running two GoPros at the same time and my underwater camera did have the flat lens on it.

    Another thing to consider is that the footage looks good out to about 30yds or so on a animal. After that due to the lens a animal looks far away and cannot be zoomed in on. I use a Contour point and shoot on the boat and have the same problem with underwater film. The object has to be fairly close for good detail unless you are just using it for landscape or really close up video for fill in footage. As mentioned before the audio is not good at all. I personally like outdoor video with good audio.

    I already have a small Sony video recorder , It's good if u r already set up in a blind or treestand ,It's a pain in the butt if ur running and gunning, so I'm trying to find something to fill that void, ,of all the different action cams out there they all seem to have their plus and minus's so just trying to get actual hunting experience on them all before spending more money,LOL

    I did a lens swap myself on that camera but that was two years ago. Now you can buy the flat lens housing direct from GoPro
