well even if i don't take it everywhere with me (1 more thing to lug around and be aware of at all times) i could still just throw it in my pocket when i go out snorkeling and what not. BTW i am not a minimalist by any stretch but i don't like carrying around stuff, especially while on a kayak. i stopped carrying around a digital camera about a month after i dropped $400 on one when they were a brand new hot item. if it wasn't for the invention of a cell phone camera i would never be able to take pics
if i get one i would just leave the mount on the kayak or in the kayak i suppose. is the waterproof case (with goPro3 black inside) small enough to fit in a pocket of some cargo shorts without being annoying? i guess i could just bring it in my pocket and if i see something cool while kayaking or snorkeling pull it out and turn it on quickly right?
if recording in 720 mode how long would it take on average to pull a 30-60 second second clip off the camera and be able to upload to FB or youtube for you guys that are used to doing this routine?
***my life is certainly not that exciting but i do live in japan and i am somewhat in the modded car culture, so there are occasionally times in the evenings when out of no where i am in the midst of a 1-5 min really exciting car related experience, whether it be a convoy of modded cars in a car club or just friends, or a race, or just the occasional weekend car meeting in some random parking lot. this and the random things seen while on the TI (surfers, ocean life, etc) or random jumping overboard and going snorkeling adventure are about the only times i would possibly want to record stuff. i just don't know if it is worth the trouble or who else would ever care to watch it but me
