    Yup and all cards are not created equal. Aside from the total storage, they come in classes. In essence if not mistaken class 1 and 2 are slower to process, better for stills but if you are shooting video consider a class 4 card. That is what they recommend for the Mobius cameras used in our science classes.

    Bought the GoPro Hero 5 Black from Apple. Managed to get it £50 cheaper than advertised

    Can you take the stick/handle into WDW parks though? Is it classed as a selfie stick?

    I had mine on a wrist strap, and the missus nephew had his on a chest strap. Cant really give you an answer on the gopro stick... If it's a non extendable stick I would imagine that would be okay.

    Just found this......

    starting tomorrow (June 30th, 2015), “selfie sticks” are banned from Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resort theme parks, but many have wondered what this means for other tripod or mono-pod type camera items. Well, Disney will still be allowing many of these items in, but there are some exceptions:

    • Tripods that can be folded and stored in a reasonable size bag are allowed. Large tripods are not.
    • Extendable camera monopods are allowed.
    • GoPro brand name body and head harnesses are allowed.
    • Short, brand name GoPro handles are allowed.
    • Brand name or similar style GRIP & SHOOT handles are also allowed.
    • GoPro 3-way or similar style extending handles are not allowed.
    • Selfie sticks of any kind are not allowed.

    That's a good find.. I did think the short non extendable go pro sticks would be okay.

    Will you be putting your footage on YouTube?

    I find myself watching lots of other people's videos on YouTube . Can't wait to go back.

    I was thinking to myself....I wonder if I can get Dave to join me in Vlogging....I very much doubt it....he will probably think I am crazy thinking about it....no way will he get involved.

    How wrong was I.....he is chomping at the bit to help out. He is quite happy to vlog with me. If it is dry this weekend, we are going to a local kiddies zoo to have a practice run!!!!

    Not even played with it yet - don't have any footage yet. Fingers crossed for a dry Saturday coming up so we can get started
