I'd hate to expose a naked cam to the abuse the case gets, falls, trees etc... I'm thinking about drilling my stock case for a usb connection.

I checked out the Morphie, all day filming is great battery life. Which model are you using? I saw a 2500MAH and a 4000MAH, I'm getting about an hour per GP battery (1050MAH) I'd like to find something that will give me about 6hrs. We just finished a 3 day unsupported DS ride and I charged the batteries off the bike but it's slow and doesn't keep up with the filming. (3hrs to charge - 1 hr to deplete)

I did a test with a new Hero3 White yesterday. With an original battery pacpac it will last all day. I did ~180 miles in about 8 hours, and still had two bars left on the battery when I got home. With the old style bacpac the battery is removable so if I bring an extra battery I'm definitely covered.

I also played around with running two GoPros at once. My editing is a little rough, I hadn't done more than one camera before.

How does that work? Isn't the Original Battery BacPac bigger than the Hero3?

The original battery is bigger, but the bacpacs are the same size.

I really don't understand now. I thought the Hero 3 is smaller than the Hero 2. So, is the Original battery bacpac an accessory that's made specifically for the Hero 3? I was assuming, from the name and it's location in the menu on the GoPro website, that it was made for an older model camera than the Hero 3.

The Hero 3 is the same height and width as the original and Hero 2, just smaller front to back.

64GB works great

Got 64gb at best buy for 40. Nice for long trips. No need to download too frequently.

Before purchasing a 64 GB memory card make sure that your card reader/PC/laptop (whatever you use to copy the files on) can handle it. I prefer 2 x 32 GB rather.

What about a waterproof case for this combo?

It takes a different back cover, there's 2 open and waterproof and they're included with the backpack.

Ugh. Installed the curved adhesive-back mount onto the side of my helmet after washing the surface and wiping down with alcohol. Put it on. Seemed fine. Fell off on its own under no load. The alcohol was completely evaporated by the time I put the mount on so I don't think its that.

Maybe the adhesive patch was old?
What kind of temperature was the helmet in when it failed?

Wow.
I mounted one to the top of an old helmet with the lacquer coming off and it stuck well enough to pull a mate off his bike when the GoPro caught in a branch...
