Default How to Aim a Go Pro

Just ordered a Go Pro with motorsickle handlebar mounts for my upcoming trip. Is it fairly easy to aim without plunking down another $80 for the LED screen?

Edited due to LI's confusion

Go Pro video camera.

Do they make it in a .38 also? ........or with ashort barrel? Have no idea what a go pro is but knowing the source I assume its a firearm - so send pics - I may need one too.....

Its such a wide angle lens that you should be fine in the general direction...

Only on THT.

Thanks Blue Chip, I get it tomorrow and don't leave out until Friday. Might make a test run to be sure. Hope to have some video of the NC,TN, and KY mounteens when I get back.

Buy the screen, it will make the camera much more useful.. We take it off the mount all the time and use it as a handheld. Worth the extra $. We use it as our camera and cam corder.

Through my past go pro experience, anything that you see reflecting in the lenses is going to be picked up by the camera.

This rule hasn't failed me yet.
