The ultimate motorcycle camera?

I was just reading through the Saturday edition of the London Financial Times and came across this camera. They retail for about $125.00 in the US.

http://www.goprocamera.com/index3.htm

I really like the idea that it straps to your wrist, or you can buy an additional mounting post and clamp. Besides pictures it takes almost an hour of video and a feature that takes a picture every 5 seconds. I'm going to buy a 2GB card - that's LOT of pictures!

The fact that it has a waterproof housing good to 100 ft. clinched the sale for me. I ordered from REI.

(No affililation with the product, I just thought it was VERY cool!)

I've seen these at Cycle Gear. They look pretty good.

Re: The ultimate motorcycle camera?

My neighbor stole my Saturday edition of the London Financial Times, so I missed this .

Once again, you find the coolest stuff - however, I'm sure you saw the one negative comment on the REI site, but should probably be taken w/ a grain of salt, I mean how complicated can it be???
