    With any water proof camera, you need to maintain the rubber water seal. Remove any dirt/grit after each use, and apply a light oil to preserve the rubber. We learned that lesson the hard way.

    I have a Nikonos IV-A which was their first underwater camera with a swing-open back (anyone who remembers the earlier models knew that they had to be disassembled to put film in or out). We were diving in Maui and during a shore break I changed film. Not realizing I had left a single grain of sand on the o-ring seal, I went back down and soon noticed that my camera had filled up with salt water. Lucky, there was a camera shop in Lahaina that took it in and flushed out, dried it and retested it. It still works.

    I've bee using a Fujifilm XP50 for about 2 years now.
    Underwater in Aruba, freezing temps in Philly, hot summer
    in China, a lot of rides in my sweaty jersey pocket; and so
    far it still works. Although the video function goes wonky
    sometimes.

    Hi...new to this forum just checking it out.... I have a gopro 3... Use it for spearfishing.. Saw your post and realised I can use it for biking.... Got me thinking which would be the best way to mount it to the bike... Or even mount it to the helmet....

    You are joking right? Go Pro has oyu covered and makes all the equipment to mount the camera to your bike or helmet... just need to pay the price! There are schools of thought of the best way to mount the camera... do some internet research... helmet seems best but you get a weird perspective. I have seen handlebar and chest mounted videos, too much static movement...

    here's the helmet mount:

    handlebar:

    there are others...

    I know there are oodles of different mounts but never thought of using it on a bike... Was wondering which gives the best result.. I've used head strap while snorkelling but is very jumpy on surface... Prefer to have it onto something solid... Wondered is it the same cycling... Maybe on handlebar or seat post

    I suggest you watch some YouTube cycling videos... best way to figure out what you want is to see the results of what others have done. I think helmet gives you the best perspective. Seat post is difficult, unless you want the rear facing view and going forward, body parts get in the way. Handlebar... the bike is "jumpy" and static where you can keep your head still. Some people also use a chest mount but you have to work on positioning... anyway have fun with this. I think there's a learning curve...

    When I bought a GoPro(HD 960); the only mount it came with was a head strap.
    I stretched it over my bike helmet and used it to shoot some footage, looks ok I think:

    Cool. I didn't see this thread, but we 'just' bought an XP70 the day before yesterday. Got it at Costco for $200 which included an accessory kit (neoprene case, float strap, memory card, rechargeable battery thingy, etc..).


    How do you like yours so far? I took some low light pics here at the house last night and I have to admit, I wasn't too impressed. I hope it does better in full day light.
