Hey i've recently acquired a few hundred extra bucks from working some side jobs and want to get a gopro. I havn't decided between the hd hero or hd hero 2 yet, but that isn't may main concern.
I am trying to decide which go pro 'package' to buy. I would like to mount the go pro on my mask, which if anyone has any tips on how they did it that would be awesome. i know they have the 'surf', and 'motosports.' i'm thinking of just getting the 'naked' package and buying whatever mounts and adaptors as needed.

I got the surf, which really doesnt help for diving. I think the moto comes with the headstrap mount. I wish I would have gotten the moto package wasn't offered from where I purchased, because I had to but the headstrap later. Be sure to tuck in under your hood if you wear it.
edit, looks like there is an outdoor edition with the headstrap mount.

All you need is in that package

I just mounted the Flip Ultra HD with Ikelite housing to my Riffe. Only cost $250 total. Many vids online to check out or I took one in the backyard to test recoil. xri's videos do more justice than my new setup, but I did a lot of research into which was better and settled for the flip. No lens switching required and you can customize the camera aestheically. flip.com, ikelite.com

headstrap >> mask mount. Second the putting it under the hood though. My first one was loaned out and ended up somewhere off of kings beach. Woopsies. It's on supersale from a couple of places including the flat lens changeout.
I looked at the mask mounting options and all my masks didn't seem to be able to accomodate the mounting easily. I got the head strap mount for like $15 and it works well and is secure under the hood. I think I would try the headstrap before messing with my expensive mask.
I've been using the hero hd with the mako flat lens for a while now and I am happy with it. I use the headstrap and a gun mount

Don't forget you're gonna need a flat lens. I use the Blurfix lens and there's quite a big difference to the plastic. It's a 55mm machined aluminium lens which will take any filter kit.
Take a look.
If i were to buy a Gopro again i would get the hero 2 outdoor and then in and then in february...
