    Tremendous car control. I wish the bumper sticker said "Tax This"

    Unbelievable!

    That is precision driving at its best.

    Wow! how fun.. I can hardly remember being that young and carefree.

    BTW: looked like a GoPro mounted to the helmet in a few shots!

    great videos

    would love to see a heist (or bullet/ french connection) type movie with some fun stunt driving like this - but the audience will probably think it's CGI!


    what the 2nd video lacked in precision & control, they sure make up in pure 'lust for life'


    seeing the GoPro go into the water made me wonder if anyone have a recommendation for a waterproof still camera? HD video would be a bonus. nothing fancy, just for occasional snorkeling or kids in the pool. i have an ancient nikon 35mm underwater camera - but digital spoiled me (instant previews & no need to return to land every 36 shots!). prefer dedicated underwater camera, instead of underwater housing.

    I have a waterproof housing for my G10, which is actually good for diving too. You can get waterproof housing for almost all Canon's snap cameras, and quite possibly many other brands too.

    The GoPro uses the same type of housing for underwater use that it uses for regular use except there are no ventilation / sound ports on the side. Also, it has a couple of settings that allow you to shoot stills every few seconds like 5sec, 10sec, 30sec or every minute. The footage they have on their website of still photos are pretty good and may work for what you want.
