I'm not, but just in case you don't know, it does not film in HD.

Correct me if Im wrong but if one is recording on 760 (better for slow mow) then HD is not necessary

Umm. No. There's nothing better about the Hero Wide.

If you're trying to do only 760p 60fps and the Wide does that then it is better than the Hero HD, beats it on price.

I thought you are talking about the older version of gopro, before the HD?
If you mean the new one that does 720, then I believe that one does 720 at only 30fps.
It does SD video at 60fps though. That one is called the 960... does 960p max and it is $180 on the gopro website.

I see so the HD HERO 960 it is.

Thanks for the replies

I'm still not seeing the point. You said something that implied that you valued
slow motion ability. The 960 doesn't do 60fps at *any* HD resolution,
where the normal Hero HD will do it at 720p.
