Great thanks. I was gonna pick one up but being in the mid west we seem to be about 3 months behind the rest of the world. When I asked about it they gave me a look like I was speaking another language.

Here is a video I just put together from my latest dive trip to Cancun. The still photos are with my Canon point & shoot. All the video footage is with my GoPro2 with flat lens. A flat lens is a must. My current flat lens floods often, so I will soon pick up the new $49 GoPro Dive Housing that just came out. Love it!

I just pick up the HD Hero2 and ordered the GoPro Dive Housing $29+ T/S/H new. Looking forward to taking it under.

On our last dive when I decided to get one, I heard a near horror story of someone losing one while headband mounted. The Dive Master went down after it successfully - but the lesson learned was to use a leash regardless of where you mount it.
