    happy birthday.
    The 3 is super cool. i have a 2, and spent nearly the same amount if not more on accessories (original).
    If it comes with a basic mount kit, then wait and see what you actually need, as half the stuff i have i never use.
    The sucker pad mount for the car is good if you want to record random driving (it's pretty random out here).
    One thing worth getting is a decent case for transport. I got something off amazon i think, and it stores teh camera plus the extra casings, remote, wifi, mounts, dive pole etc.

    Popped up to John Lewis last night and reserved a camera while they are doing a price check. Just got the email through and they are going to match the price at Currys which is 269.99 for the Go Pro Hero+ Black Edition going to be saving me nearly 100 as John Lewis have it up at 359.99 excited going to pick it up tonight.

    Aren't you actually not saving anything, since it was already that price at Curry's? You could've just bought it there :P
    You'd only be saving if John Lewis sold it to you at less that Curry's were selling it at.

    John Lewis provide a 2 year warranty whereas Currys only give you standard 1 year.

    I hope tonight's clear cut. I've got Colombia in the sweepstake and Brazil in a points league.

    Did it fall off the mount at one point?

    Got a bet on Colombia for overall winners 33-1 put 10 on so fingers crossed.

    Nope didn't fall off, I purchased the proper go-pro head strap the headstrap moved around a little but only when I hit the ground relatively hard and I just pushed it back on could probably do with tightening the straps
