LOST! : in front of Samira Club Hotel in Hammametin, Tunisia, on 2013-08-29

On Sept 20th, we received this message from Andreas N.:

“On 29th of August 2013 a friend of mine lost my GoPro Hero3 black with a 64GB microSD card mounted on the original helmet mount.
The last video is how he drives JetSki in the sea in front of the Samira Club Hotel in 8050 Hammametin Tunisia (Avenue de la Paix).
On the SD card there are also some pics of me while making photos of me with waves in the sea.
Also there are some pics of me and my friend while being on paddleboat on the sea.
The picture below is definitely on the goPro SD Card, because I copied it with the iOS app. I have copied 146 photos from my GoPro. But on the GoPro are also a video while I drove a JetSki and how I did parachuting over the sea of Hammamet in Tunisia.
I hope that a honestly person finds my goPro and if, there will be a reward for bringing me back good photos of a wonderful vacation.

Thank you very much.
Greetings from Germany
Andreas N.”

LOST! : on La Playa Espadilla, Costa Rica, on 2013-09-11

On Sept 18th, we received this message from Jake M.:

“Comment: I lost my Go Pro Hero 3 (Black) to the Pacific Ocean at La Playa Espadilla in Costa Rica on Wednesday September 11th, 2013. It had video of our canopy zipline tour from that morning. I had planned on using it the next day to capture my girlfriends reaction as I proposed to her. Devastating loss. If for some crazy reason it washed up on shore and anyone found it, my mind would be blown & I’d be eternally grateful to get those memories back!

How to travel safely with your GoPro Camera?

As many people are asking themselves “How will I carry my camera around, with my most used accessories?”, I am explaining here my method.

.

I purchased:

– a plastic box with a handle on the side

– some precut foam

I put my GoPro Camera and accessories on top of the foam and started to extrude the shape of my GoPro Camera and accessories.

Finally I inserted my cameras and accessories in the cuts, and voila!

.

Some pics to illustrate the result:

Here is the list of what I put inside:

A GoPro Camera (up to three could be carried in my box: 1 in the foam, two in the two HD housing.

One waterproof HD housing and one open version both with their backpack battery backdoor

One open and one waterproof standard back doors

A backpack battery

A suction mount

A handlebar and seat-post mount

Many GoPro extenders

Lot of GoPro screws (with a small “tipp-ex” white dot on the longest, the ones for the case, in order to identify them easily)

A USB cable to recharge the GoPro Camera battery

My rotating time-lapse egg-timer (IKEA) with a female tripod adapter at the bottom (for a tripod…) and another one at the top (for the GoPro tripod adapter)

Finally I placed a GoPro sticker on the case in order to identify it quickly and my details (name, email, phone) under the foam sheet that is located on the cover of the box.

What can’t be put in the box: a pole (1.5m long, aluminum), my Manfrotto big and small tripods, the Gorilla tripod.

I hope that this post helped you…
