Hello all, I am finally going to break down and get a GoPro for this season and was wondering what everyone was using, and which one is best for sledding? I know there are quite a few on the market in varying price ranges, though I don't think I could justify buying the Hero 4 Black because it seems to be a bit more than what is really needed. I just want something that is high def, really clear, and wont have a whole lot of shaking if I decided to put it on my handlebars. Thanks for the input in advance!

Decide which one you can afford and buy it. I have had one since early on and they just keep getting better. Even the early ones will do what you asked for, not sure about the mounting on your handle bars. Mount it and see if you like the picture then try again. The newer features like remote viewing and control are really nice. I think the newer ones have better battery life and picture quality but they are all better than anything in the past.

If you want something high-definition, very clear, all Gopro models are deserved. GoPro has always done a good job on the clarity of the picture. But if you need a more stable picture, you may need to install GoPro gimbal.

I watched some stabilization videos of the gopro 7 vs the 8. That made me decide to get an 8 as all my footage with my 3 are very bouncy.

The 360 sounds fun, but I don't know if I would want to have that on full time.
Does the Max operate in non-360 mode too?

From my understanding yes. But I'll let you know shortly as I just ordered one.

I also have the Black 7 which does well and the session which I actually really like because of the size. it would be nice if they released an updated version of the session.
