Hello TFF members! :)

Here is mine......

Specific model: GoPro hero 2014

It can shoot video, pictures, burst, and time lapse.

Resolution: 1080-30

Spot meter: off

Quick Capture: on

NTSC/PAL: NTSC

LED: both on

Beeps: off

Micro SD card size: 32 GB

It has a custom ACU camo “skin” or wrap on it because I use it when I play airsoft a lot.

The accessory to the left of the GoPro is the “GoPro 3-way selfie stick “

To a person that doesn’t know what this means, it is just useless information. I hope there is someone here’s that knows what I’m talking about! :p

How good are GoPros and are they water proof?

I am looking for a camera to stick on bait traps in the water so I can see if there are any crocodiles nearby.

Yes yes yes!! All GoPros are %100 water proof. Are you wanting sort of a small one @Colin_T? And are you on a budget? The best GoPro on the market currently, is the GoPro hero 7 black, and it has an LCD touch screen on the back, unlike mine. If you want a super reliable one, that also has a touch screen, I would go with the GoPro hero 4 Black. I will include links for all of the above, if you want them. ;)

If you want a super small one, go with the GoPro hero 5 session. :)

That is a good idea @Fishmanic! I never thought of that! (Btw, I like your new sig. ;))

(And as an answer to your question, “How good are they?” They are the best action camera currently on the market. ) :)

I am after a few cameras to fit on bait traps so as small as possible but I'm not after spy cams or anything like that. Price isn't a real issue apart from the fact they might get eaten by crocodiles, so I would prefer not to spend huge amounts and have a croc eat it.

Do any of them have a wireless feed so I can record it on land while the camera is in the water?

How much time can they record for?

Yes, anything over my a GoPro hero 2014, will be able to “live stream” to your phone. GoPro has a free app that you can get on your phone.

So it seems like you would want to go with a GoPro hero 5 session. Theses cameras can record for a little over 4 hours, if they have 62 GB micro SD cards. Not because they will run out of battery, but because they will run out of storage space. After you run out of the 4 hours, then just delete the footage, so you have more room. (After you review it of course.) :)

(Just to let you know, the GoPro hero 5 session is only 1inx1inx1in making it the smallest GoPro on the market.)

We use a Go Pro when tubing and rafting in the river. Perfect for water sports!

Cool! What specific model is it? :)

(If you can’t find the model, just send in a picture, I should be able to or “ID” it for you!) ;)
