GoPro :-p yea or nay

Watch @aaronpk live feed today discussing the GoPro. I am setting up multiple class rooms and was planning on gopros and have budgeted for go pros. Is there another camera you guys would suggest for overhead cameras

What are your main criteria in a classroom setting? I’m assuming it might be things like: always on (or easily turned on with a power switch), long cable, continuous power (not battery) … anything else?

Always on. HDMI out great quality. Wide lens.

Check out the Mokose camera I demod a couple weeks ago:

It’s definitely not as good as the GoPro in picture quality but I suspect you’d be fighting it a lot less in terms of powering it and fiddling with menus and such. The one I got is an SDI camera but they have HDMI versions too.
