gun mount is better for footage of shoooting the fish head mount is better for the footage after the shot

Re: GOPRO HERO3: White Edition

I head mount my camera. Distance perception kind of sucks in low vis when watching videos. Gun mount is nice when shooting fish. but overall I like the head mount cause you can pretty much catch everything that's happening around you. I do wear a hooded vest for extra security.

Had a buddy who had to ditch his gun and lost his whole setup, never retrieved. Very costly... Head mount is way to go IMO, zip tie it to your mask and your all set. It works better for filming others during a dive as well.
