Not bad, how comfortable was the Harness? And did you use the Hero 3? And which Edition?

Which video resolution modes setting did you used? I'm using 960-30(default) on my HD2. Trying to figure out which one is better on harness mount.

kiteflyer 87, the harness mount is very comfortable I wore it for about 2 hours, i did find it a bit combersome after about an hour, but I was having far too much fun to come in and take it off.
I'd say its fine for an hour or so, but any longer and you'll probably feel like you'll want to take it off.

kiteonsnow - My camera is the gopro Hero 2 and I used it on the default settings, the waves were bigger than the camera gave it credit for, but I'm wondering if I changed to a less fish eye view then the waves would look bigger, but then you might not get the whole shot in. I'll have to have a play with it, when the rain stops ;)

how do you get the backy mount to change its view? some of the shots are from by your feet?
I also think it would look better with vegemite smeared over it ;)

check Wizmount - no need to drill your harness, many angles to shoot from and very comfortable
