My Boxing Day purchase consisted of a Hot Wheels toy (at full price ) and two 13x19 frames from Michael's for less than the price of a single one ($41 instead of $120.) Might go back tomorrow and pick up a shadow box display case for my Hot Wheels cars

Why do you think that? Curious, as we've used everything but the ReplayXD for motorsports. GoPro is still our #1 choice, and Replay won't provide us with an evaluation copy to compare side-to-side.

Can you recommend any non-helmet mount that you use regularly? I have discounts to PD's capture POV but i feel it's more geared towards GP than Sony.

Is it pretty usable without the housing? The lens scratches easily without it?

What's a good program to easily create time lapse? Sorry for the barrage of questions.
Don't use that model outside the housing. The newer AS100 is somewhat equipped for non-housing use, but the model you have there is for in housing use only.

In terms of mounts, my most used:

1. Standard Roll Cage mount for a lot of car stuff - Clamps onto anything, like my headrests, or roof rails, etc.

2. Suction cup mount - for anything other than the above car related.

3. Pole/Selfie stick - As much as I hate to say it, for snowboarding it gets the most immersive action.

For anything else with helmets, like mountain biking or other shots for snowboarding, I rock a stickie on the side of my helmet and some go pro angle connectors to mount the camera upside down. Like this except upside down (adds stability):



As for chest mount, yes the design isn't as conducive to that sort of mount, but the chest mount they do actually have isn't bad, you would be surprised how well it still works. I use it for mountain biking often.

Half the stuff I use for mounts and stuff is actually go-pro designed mounts. I just use one of the drift adapters to mount my sony cam to the go-pro mounts.

Like I said I prefer the design of the sony, to the teletubby looking thing everyone with a go pro rocks.

I had a $50 FS gift card.
Bought the Seagate Slim 1TB, even though I know it was cheaper at NCIX or ME.

Didn't want to bother saving the FS gift card for another time, as saving money immediately was priority.
Too bad no Price matching on boxing day.

Are you sure? I tried looking up the prices on this set from the past, and the cheapest I found was $99.99, and that was November 2013. I paid $109.99 for it a few weeks ago, which I thought was the cheapest it's been since then.
