Yes, it was a GoPro Hero HD mounted to the boom.  Just remember to get the moisture strips for the camera or the lens fogs up within 20 - 40 minutes.  I lost some good video from foggy lens.  The handle bar mounts were used with the GoPro camera.  GoPro camera was mounted upside down on the boom and a menu select within the GoPro camera  was used to flip the video. The 960p (1280 x 960 4:3) setting was used which gives you more video in the vertical direction (up/down).  You can use the 1080p setting (wide screen 16:9) but it will cut the top and bottom of the video but you will get more video on the left and right side.  I would recommend the GoPro Hero 960 HD (max. setting is 960p) which is approximately $100 less.  I have not yet had a reason to use the 1080p.  The camera does not float.


GoPro camera was good for 2 hours and 40 minutes on a new battery. 16 GB SDHC class 4 ex. (Kingston) memory card works since 2 hours and 40 min. is around 12-14 GB. With and extra battery and memory card, you can recorded most of your sailing session:)  I changed the memory and battery out at the same time.  One Con: I am required to charge the batteries in the camera with USB.  I don't believe there is no AC charger for the  batteries.  There are AC chargers with USB ports but you still need to use the camera to charge the battery.

Fun video to watch.

Is that a HD GoPro mounted to the boom?

Cool video.  I liked the side-by-side framing.  Seeing liquid phase water helps this time of year.
