    Great news you got it, shame its still at work. I am sure it says on the instructions but make sure you update the firmware as soon as you turn it on...its a bit flaky if you don't and freezes etc.

    Definitely well worth it!

    Took it snorkelling in Egypt with a float like http://bit.ly/16xNSKa. Wrapped round my wrist, came out very well. Have yet had chance to upload to YouTube yet though. Need to edit the footage together, but my computer can't really handle the 1080p 60fps footage.

    This is some unedited footage I took when going gokarting:
    1080p 60fps - standard helmet mount.

    Took it for a couple of dives this weekend, heres a sample:



    The filter hasnt arrived yet but hopefully it will for next weekend.

    I shot it in 24fps 1080p. Would it be better to shoot it in 60fps?

    Very cool... Looks fine at 24fps, the filter will improve the colour. How was it mounted?

    I just screwed in the small mount that came with it and held that.

    Ive ordered a proper hand held mount from the local dive shop, one that also holds a torch as well.

    But it was still awesome, and I made myself a mount that worked pretty well:

    Not too sure about the arm and tray but its just a cheap Tusa torch. Beam is only 42 degrees so when going through tunnels and stuff the camera only really caputres a spotlight.
    Cant afford one of the expensive proper torches just yet.

    What do I export it to from Adobe Premier to end up with a 1080p movie that is reasonably compressed?

    heres a quick edit of some footage from last sunday.



    Went for a dive today with the new filter, thanks @adamf it makes so much difference. Was only in 5-10m today and pretty poor vis but the results are impressive.

    Never imagined the day i would be getting up before the sun, just so i could try to do a timelapse sunrise...,

    526562_10151619202131003_1988439228_n.jpg

    I had it on a 60 sec interval which made it pretty crappy; at 24 fps it was over in 3 seconds.... I will need to try again with better settings.



    As an aside, a school of cafish swam through me this week, which was pretty awesome.
