I need some advice on the 2 below versions:
1. GoPro HERO3: Black Edition Camera
2. GoPro HERO3: Black Edition Camera Surf Kit
Both are the same camera and also priced the same i.e. $400 ... but one comes with some extra stuff for mounting on to the surf board. The other one is basically the same thing without the surfboard mounts.
I do not intended to use it for surfing as I do not surf.
I will be using it for slow-motion video footage in dry, dusty desert landscapes and occasionally offshore for our company's rig fleet from a chopper ... the camera will be mounted on my 4X4 off-road vehicle ... and sometimes on a helmet while descending into sink holes and in the chopper going to offshore rigs.
Now my questions for your advice:
1. Can the surfboard mounts be used on a 4X4 off road vehicle?
2. What kind of additional attachments do I need to mount it on to a 4X4 off road vehicle?
3. What kind of additional attachments do I need for to mount it on to a safety helmet?
I see several accessories here: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/search?Ntt=Hero+Go+Pro&N=0&InitialSearch=yes&sts=ma&Top+Nav-Search=
... but am not sure if they really suit my requirements.
So does anyone have any experience with these or any other mounting/securing accessories, specifically, for GoPro Hero 3 camera, that worked well for you?
I did google and youtube but can't seem to make up my mind as I am uncertain about the ease of usage of these accessories.
I do not wish to buy any other alternative cameras, unless they can do everything that a GoPro Hero 3 Black Edition can do and cost $400 or less (excluding accessories of course) ... so any advice specific to my above questions is highly appreciated.
Thank in advance
