w_skierunless you like your goggles suffocatingly tight the goggle mount sucks, which is the only real advantage it has over the gopro. my 1st gen one is pretty heavy and it has an awkward shape for a traditional helmet mount. I would have got a gopro instead if I had the choice.
Titsandwich11can you elaborate on the goggle strap mount? i only saw it for the first time recently and it made me really consider getting one if i get another POV camera. it looks small and easy to wear on the goggle like that
w_skierWhen I tried using it the camera would shake around and pull my goggles down, and would also make your head off balance. I pretty much had to tighten them to the point they were painful, which sucked. Maybe if you wear your goggles outside your helmet it works better but I thought it was pretty meh. The camera itself is still nice, and I'll still use it on deep days (with a teletubbie mount since it didnt come with an angle adjuster) but gopro seems better.
Titsandwich11word yeah come to think of it, i wear my goggs under my helmet and i dont need a camera that's going to tempt me to not wear my helmet more than i already do
thanks for the answer
KravtZI wear my goggles outside the helmet.
MustBeMattyBI also would recommend it over GoPro, I got one with all the accessories for Filmer Unknown and I personally think the accessory build quality is better, and it has this cool camcorder attachment that turns it into like an old school handheld camcorder which is sick for just some casual shooting because it can fit in your pocket fairly easily.
