16 gig is plenty for 3 dives at 30 mins each. get a 10 series vs the 4 series. better quality of video.

Re: Go pro help

16 gig is plenty for basic dives or hunts. Im sure you are a great Dad so don't forget the Lcd back for it too !! That way you can see as you are video taping !! ( about 79.00 )

I use this same card, but 32gb just incase I can't get to a computer. 16 is fine, I bought mine for 80 a year ago so this is a good deal if its the right card I believe

Gotta buy a new case.

I think if you want LCD playback, get yourslef a digital camera and an underwater housing.

It actually comes with several differant back covers for the housing. One waterproof and one for land shooting with openings for sound. When you film with the l.c.d monitor on it REALLY uses up the battery.
