    Here's a few images taken with my GoPro, It does a pretty good job with images, I like the contrast and the fisheye lens.

    I've always wondered if I should update my hat. With our climate it works well, but I do agree it's not a fashion statement. I've been on the look out for something more fashionable, but thus far have not found anything I'm happy with.
    Nawh ... function and character are the signs of a good hat! Fashion smashion ... we don't need fashion in the piney woods!

    Iíve just been reading a few of the posts here...

    Redoleary is right it is a bit of a PITA. Iíve been having trouble with sound quality even before I got a GoPro. The clap thing is the best I could come up with. Iíve got a clicker, but what I found was, either the GoPro didnít pick up the click sound, or my editor has a bad audio graph thingy. The spike on the audio graph in the sound editor was hardly visible and not usable, so I gave the clicker the flick. Worked GREAT and I could see it easily on the audio recorder graph.

    Phillipsart, if you canít find one in your local pet shop, let me know and Iíll post my one up to you. If you do find them, test try them all, because some work better/easier than others. I also found that having to carry and mess around with three things (camera, recorder, clicker) was even more of a pain in the you know what than having to clap. They only cost 3 bucks, so try it, it might work for you.

    Hawk-eye, I know I look HOT in my trend setting fashion fancy down under handsome honey-pie hat! If I find a hat that looks less fashionable than the one Iíve got, Iíll GRAB it. I like that it looks bad. It would be a really good look with the built in fly net deployed! lol Iím saving that for a special occasion.

    Yes, a magic camp site. I should have setup my tarp in porch mode.

    Thanks for the offer Bruciehi5 with the clicker. I'm going up town after lunch will drop by at a pet shop and see if they sell the clickers. If not I might take you up on that offer.

    Thanks, but most of those bird noises where not picked up by the GoPro in it's water proof housing, I dubbed some of those into the footage using iMovie 11 on my Mac.
