Got a GoPro, now what to do with it?

Well, its not actually a GoPro but same idea, durable little waterproof camera. Im really excited as ive always wanted one. I plan on taking it riding with me next time i go on a trail ride, but what else should i do with it?

If I am not riding I'm thinking about horses, and if I am not thinking about horses I'm riding

The videos of people with horses and goPros that I like the most are the trail rides, cross country/paper chases, riding on the beach, and foxhunting. A great feature of the goPro is making the viewer able to see what you're seeing. If you add a narration to your video it can be very helpful for learning riders. Doug Payne narrates his vids and they are pretty awesome to watch : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qZdu...l7LAmrPm7T4SDA

I have a GoPro that I use underwater. I have to admit while I love the idea of it, it really has been problematic. Difficulty in downloading and it often just stops working for no reason. I am constantly pulling the battery to "reset" it.

This is the first video I ever took with it, so it is not the best camera filming technique. It is a veined octopus on a night dive in Indonesia.

I am going to Fiji at the end of August. I might try to upgrade to the newer model in the hopes of getting a better working model.
