Underwater Video- Dropped the GoPro into my 225 today.


Just messing around and learning to use my new HERO3. Stuck it into one end of my 225 and shot this short video- GOPR0012 - YouTube
let me know what you think.

That's the cool part! It's designed for outdoor POV sports action,so it comes with a water proof case that's good to 200ft. I figured my tank's only 24" deep, so why not give it a try? Here's a link to the camera -http://gopro.com/products

Do you have a dowel or device you can attach to it in order to move around inside the tank?

Tons of fun to watch.

I believe gopros have a very sensitive microphones. Never owned one though (just had a friend with one, and we used to do twisties up the mountain with our sportbikes)

Very nice quality, wondering if making a DIY stand/stick to move the camera around in the tank. Will be amazing video
